Which album do you think is the best bassguitaralbum when you want to show John's qualities ? I think John is a great bassplayer on record. My choices are "Jazz" and "The Game"

Jazz : listen to mustapha, jealousy, BR, Dead on time for example. Great and difficult songs for a bassplayer.

The Game : The mix on this album is much better and the bassguitar is louder. Songs like Dragon attack, AOBTD, CLTCL, DTS and SASS are great for a bassplayer.

another question : I read somewhere that they recorded Jazz with two different bassguitars and basslines for almost each song. Is this true ?

Being a bassist it is difficult to pick out 1 album

But if I had to I would say Queen II, that album has some excellent playing on it

But every album has some great playing by John

I'm not gonna go into every album but for example - Millionaire Waltz, Jealosy, Show Must Go On to name just a few

Probably the worst (if that word is the corect one) is News Of The World - not much going on there really - except parts of Champions are good


back off with your Megaton

Good point about NOTW.

Of the 11 songs on there, John only plays on 7!

And in 'Fight From The Inside' Roger plays bass, you know that!?! :)


I think Bohardy was counting that in the 4 songs John didn't play on. Roger also played bass on Sheer Heart Attack, and we will rock you has no bass obviously. What's the 4th one then? Does My Meloncholy Blues have bass? Can't remember...

Does it matter on difficult, or is effectiveness and quality less important these days ?

Best bass guitar album? Fragile by Yes.
