About This Episode
Today we’re chatting to session legend Mo Foster, who has a credit list that could fill a book. In fact it has! It was an opportunity not to be missed when Mo invited us round for a chat about all things bass.
Having placed a ‘Bass Player Available’ ad in Melody Maker, Mo kick-started his session career in the early ‘70s. Working with ex-Manfred Mann singer, Mike D’Abo, and Olivia Newton-John was a springboard to numerous tours and studio dates with the likes of Hank Marvin, Cliff Richard and, later on, Van Morrison, Phil Collins and Jeff Beck.
His first professional bass was a Gibson EBO, but Mo soon switched camps and bought a Fender Jazz Bass, which he stripped and converted to a fretless in 1976. Becoming a bass player, Mo says, was the result of a series of accidents, many of which are revealed in his book, British Rock Guitar.

What To Do Next
As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…
… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
Thanks so much for listening. I’m committed to serving you guys… and as always, see you in the shed!
