Look at the list!

Look at the list!

Hope you have a few minutes to read this one...

He is probably the most famous bass player you never heard of. His name is Leland Sklar and he is celebrating his 74th birthday today. Sklar studied music at California State University, Northridge. It was during that time he met James Taylor, who invited him to play bass at some venues. They both thought that the work would be short-term, but soon Taylor's career took off with his first hit records, and Sklar came into the limelight. He was soon asked to record with others, and his long career began. Here is a partial list of some of the over 2000 albums that leland has played on. This list does not include his work in movies or for television. (Beware, it's a long list)

50 years ago this week The Rolling Stones “Sticky Fingers” was released with three tracks recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound in December of 1969. The release was delayed until 1971 as the Stones worked out their new record deal with Atlantic Records on their own vanity label “Rolling Stones Records”. The album went to number 1 on the U.S. charts.
