Magazine Description

In this issue

The bass world lost a giant with the May passing of Louis “Thunder Thumbs” Johnson. Arguably the key link between slap pioneer Larry Graham and modern master Marcus Miller, Johnson approached the instrument with a passion and ferocity not seen or heard since. We honor Johnson with a look back at his remarkable career. Elsewhere, we catch up with Chris Wolstenholme for the lowdown on Muse’s new album, Drones; Alabama Shakes anchor Zac Cockrell; and Mike Kerr of the surging rock duo Royal Blood. We also check out the Carvin/Keisel JB5, the Marleaux Contra 5-string, and Pirastro's Evah Pirazzi Slap Strings. And, just as the school bells begin to ring again, we revisit Alice Cooper’s timeless “School’s Out” with a transcription of Dennis Dunaway’s renegade 1972 bass line.
