Didn't Glover once rip out his Ric pickups and put in Jazz pickups? I've seen photos of him playing what looks like a mutant Ric ..


That mutant could be that French bass.

Yes. He replaced the Ric's neck p/u with 2 Jazz p/u's.

Roger Glovers' sound on the "Live In Tokyo" album sounded pretty heavy to me.There was a lot of ego in that band where everyone was kind of competing with each other musically.

That would explain why it sounded like s**t.

All that whole group and no mention of one of the best and most loyal to the Rick, Dave Meros of Spock's Beard. I don't understand why this band gets NO play or respect! Their music is QUITE accessible (sp?) It really trends more towards pop than prog in my opinion. Go out and buy either "The Kindness of Strangers" or "The Light" for some GREAT Rick riffs!

Spock's Beard was already mentioned in this thread so it didn't seem necessary to add them, but Geezer Butler not being listed yet on this thread? COME ON! One of the reasons I got a ric was seeing/hearing Butler use a Red 4001 on a rendition of "Black Sabbath" and that opening riff he plays sounded soooo mean. I knew I wanted a ric.

There is a video of that performance on youtube somewhere.

One bass player left off in my book from your list, my mate Stan Stammers used a 4001 Mapleglo in UK band Theatre of Hate, he went on to be the bass player of Spear of Destiny.
