■ The Beatles – All My Loving
One of my first biggest influences was Paul McCartney. The walking bass line on ‘All My Loving’ was one of the first things I learned to play.


■ The Beatles – Come Together
The other big Beatles riff I love is the blues-based intro of ‘Come Together’ which I have modified and worked into some of my own work.


■ The Rolling Stones – I Wanna Be Your Man
I’ll never forget how impressed I was the first time I heard Bill Wyman’s bass line on The Stones’ hit ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ – the very essence of R&B.


■ The Who – My Generation
R&B was prevalent in the London clubs as I was growing up. I used to go to The Marquee Club to watch The Who, who labelled themselves as ‘Maximum R&B’.


■ Who – Happy Jack
I was a died-in-the-wool Who fan from the age of fifteen and had many enjoyable hours watching Pete Townsend and listening to John Entwistle’s bass.


■ The Graham Bond Organization – Hoochie Coochie Man
At The Marquee Club I saw The Graham Bond Organisation: Bond – Hammond, Dick Heckstall-Smith – sax, Ginger Baker – drums & Jack Bruce – bass & vocals.


■ Cream – Crossroads
Of course Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker went on to form Cream with Eric Clapton where you can hear many examples of Jack’s talented bass playing.


■ The Police – Spirits In The Material World
I always loved the way The Police combined rock with reggae. A great example of this is Sting’s bass part on ‘Spirits In The Material World’.


Funk Brother James Jamerson played on more Number 1 Hits (mainly for Motown records) than anyone else who ever lived. The list of tunes is astounding.


■ Red Hot Chili Peppers Higher Ground
A couple of guys that I’d like to mention who are younger than myself are Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tony Kanal of No Doubt.


■ No Doubt – It’s My Life
I recently found out that Tony Kanal of No Doubt grew up where I grew up, in the northwest suburb of London, Kingsbury. He’s fantastic live.
