Roger Glover with a Modern Player Tele bass?
« on: March 21, 2016, 04:48:01 PM »
Glover, 3 months ago, in a reunion of The Madisons - his high school band, and Episode Six, his first band with Ian Gillan. He's playing a Modern Player Tele, and there's a white (or MG) Ric 3001 in the backup stand.


A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

Is that a Rickenbacker behind him on the stand?

That has to sound better than his Vigier basses.

I do find it ironic that he had that amazing tone in the '70s, but in his head he was craving that sterile, plinky Vigier tone.  :mrgreen:

Hopefully slightly more diplomatically than that!

"So Mr. Glover, some faceless goon on the Internet thinks that you probably got a better tone from a MIC Fender than your expensive Vigier basses, and implied that your '70s tone was much better than anything since. Thoughts?"

Sounds like a good opener for friendly conversation.
