Joe Osborn


Joe Osborn is probably the most recorded bassist in Music history.

His groundbreaking work with the Wrecking Crew (a group of studio musicians in LA from the mid 60’s to the early 70’s).

Just one look at his top 40 success (see below) tells it all.

Besides the charting stuff he is on thousands of other recording.

Some of my favorites include:

  • Gram Parsons
  • Neil Young
  • Simon and Garfunkel
  • The Monkees

To name but a few…
