What's In? [Deaky-topics in this week]
- The Rich List 2001
According to the Sunday Times on 22th, John gained 45,000,000 pounds last year and came to 764th rich peple around UK, same as Roger.
It said: "Deacon, 49, owes his wealth to his years as the bass player with Queen."
- John appeared on "The Sun"
According to The Sun, John attended the Bitch Aid (the popbitch.com server appeal party) some days ago and left some words about Queen + Robbie things and so on (the article also is in MayBe? site.) Well, "The Sun" is just a tabloid, so I don't know what exactly he said. But anyway, I'm glad to "see" him in public :-)
- Real-Bass? Synth-Bass? : Revisited
My friend Phillip helped me again about this topic:
John stated in a rare Q & A (in the International Fan Club Mag) that he was rather fond of programmed/synth/computer-bass ("computer-bass can be good"). Especially on "The Miracle" and other later albums, programmed synth-bass was used quite a lot ("Breakthru, "The Miracle", "The Invisible Man").
However, John always used his "real" bass as well. There's always a good balance of "human" and computer bass on this kind of tracks. "Radio Ga Ga", "Machines" and "Ride The Wild Wind" are further examples.
"The Invisible Man" consists of several layers of bass-lines.
At the beginning, there are at least two layers of computer-bass which are playing for most of the time When the first chorus starts, John's real bass is joining in as well. From then on there's a good balance, including several times where only John's bass-guitar is left.
Thank you for reading! See you next week!
