Stories about you!

We are all in the glamor group and, in the celebrity group. Help us to reveal a little about yourself, where we travel and where the rest of us meet you in the late evening hours, club, pub and the like or see and meet you when you go home early in the morning…

In the future, we will write small stories about you that connect to small music stories that may be of interest to those of us who have not yet come within. Everything doesn’t have to be true as long as it’s fun and interesting. It does not harm creativity if you tip us, the gray mass, us wretched and helpless ones, about your life experience and your experiences. Send us your contribution to If you have a picture of yourself or something you want to highlight, include this in the email as well. Also want you to mention a song that you connect to the story you share. Remember you should not be ugly or mean to people in your story, we will take care of that ourselves. It is called division of labour. Welcome with your contribution!

First up is a great music story about the girl who played better bass than the guys

Carol Kaye is an American musician who is one of the most prolific recorded bass guitarists in rock and pop music, playing on an estimated 10,000 recordings in a career spanning over 65 years .

She began playing guitar in her early teens and after some time as a guitar teacher, began to perform regularly on the Los Angeles jazz and big band circuit.

She started session work in 1957, and through a connection at Gold Star Studios began working for producers Phil Spector and Brian Wilson.

After a bassist failed to turn up to a session in 1963, she switched to that instrument, quickly making a name for herself as one of the most in-demand session players of the 1960s, playing on numerous hits .

Some of the songs that Carol Kaye played bass on include:

“Summertime” by Sam Cooke (1957)  

“La Bamba” by Ritchie Valens (1958)  

“Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” by Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans (1962)
