Bass players are perceived as the quiet ones in any given band. Not so Guy Pratt, a bassist of supreme skill and charisma who has played with Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Bryan Ferry. Our cover interview with this irrepressible raconteur comes as he heads on tour with Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets, the most accomplished psych band in decades.

This issue of Bass Guitar Magazine is all about personalities, from the peerless Marcus Miller and the blues bassist Suzy Starlite through to Dylan Desmond of Bell Witch, the most progressive bassist to emerge in ages. Our gear reviews also focus on the unique and the characterful – like the unorthodox Gillett Contour S and the long-awaited Blackstar amp range. 

As for making you the best bass player you can be, we’ve rounded up three of the coolest tutors anywhere in the known universe: Steve ‘Lord Of The Loops’ Lawson, session and stage veteran Phil Mann, and technical wizard Stu Clayton. You’ve got some serious summer reading in your hands.
