American musician who was one of the pioneers of using distortion with his bass to help it cut through the mix with the low-powered amps of his time which also imparted a very sharp-edged sound to it, Tim Bogert has passed away. According to t report, John Voorhis “Tim” Bogert died today January 13, 2021, after a long battle with cancer at the age of 76.
His friend Carmine Appice confirmed the information about Tim’s death via his official Facebook page.
Excerpts From Wha He Posted On His Page
My true friend Tim Bogert died today. He was like a brother to me. He was my friend for over 50 years.
Tim was one of a kind bass player. He inspired many, many bass players worldwide. He was as masterful at shredding as he was holding down a groove, and Tim introduced a new level of virtuosity into rock bass playing. No one played like Tim. He created bass solos that drove audiences to a frenzy every time he played one. And he played a different solo every night. He was the last of the legendary 60’s bass players.
Tim was a very intelligent person. So intelligent that we would call him “Spock”. You could ask him anything and he would know something about it.
I loved Tim like a brother. He will be missed very much in my life. I will miss calling him, cracking jokes together, talking music and remembering the great times we had together, and how we created kick-ass music together.
Perhaps the only good thing about knowing someone close to you is suffering a serious illness, is you have an opportunity to tell them that you love them, and why you love them. I did that, a lot. I was touched to hear it said back to me. Nothing was left unsaid between us and I’m grateful for that. I highly recommend it.
