The legendary David Bowie has passed, but fortunately we have years and years of great music that we can enjoy from this amazing artist. As a tribute to the Thin White Duke, we have put together a small list of some of Bowie’s best bass players.
- Gail Ann Dorsey – From 1995 until his death, Dorsey laid down the bottom end on Bowie’s albums and in his live band. She was known for taking the Freddy Mercury parts when they performed the legendary single, “Under Pressure.”
- Trevor Bolder – One of the Spiders from Mars, Bolder is one of the most important bass players Bowie ever had. He performed on the albums The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, Hunky Dory, and Aladdin Sane, paving the way for Punk. After his time with Bowie, Trevor Bolder performed for many years with Uriah Heap. Bolder passed away in 2013.
- George Murray – During Bowie’s Berlin period, his band typically consisted of Carlos Alomar on guitar, Dennis Davis on drums, and George Murray on bass. His performances can be heard on Stations to Station, Low, and “Heroes,” as well as Iggy Pop’s The Idiot, which was produced by Bowie.
