TETSU YAMAUCHI KAM KURZ VOR SCHLUSS: DER BASSIST WIRD 75
- Oct 21, 2021
Der Bassist verfolgte eine lose Solokarriere, die in den Siebzigern und Neunzigern ein paar Studioalben abwarf.
Tetsu Yamauchi, who turns 75 on October 21, was a sought-after bassist in the seventies. However, the Japanese only joined the respective band when it was already on its way out. In 1972 he replaced Andy Fraser in Free, which then only recorded their album HEARTBREAKER together with him before they finally broke up in 1973. After that Yamauchi went to the Faces, where he took the place of Ronnie Lane. Here it was only enough for a single release in the studio. However, the Japanese undertook extensive concert tours with the Faces before they parted ways in 1975. Tetsu Yamauchi's musical vita also includes an album he recorded in 1971 (Free had just split up for the first time) with guitarist Paul Kossoff, drummer Simon Kirke and keyboardist John "Rabbit" Bundrick. Therefore, it was called KOSSOF KIRKE TETSU RABBIT.
The bassist pursued a solo career, dropping a couple of studio albums in the seventies and nineties.
