Rupert's Rooftop Bass Lounge

A Tribute to Bassist Joe Osborn

Joe Osborn (August 28, 1937 – December 14, 2018) was an American bass guitar player known for his work as a session musician in Los Angeles with the Wrecking Crew and Nashville with the A-Team of studio musicians during the 1960s through the 1980s I've chosen one of my favourite songs with a beautiful bass line of Joe's "Bridge Over Troubled Water".

I met Joe back in the early 90's when I moved to Nashville, such a genuine cat. He told so many stories of the Wrecking Crew days and their antics in LA.
