Excerpt from the June, 2009 issue of Bass Player Magazine. Badass Rock Bassist Billy Sheehan said the following in an interview...

"If your timing is locked, you can get away with almost anything. James Jamerson, Paul McCartney, and Tim Bogert are classic examples of players using the entire fingerboard while serving the song. And there are times when it's a blast to cut loose. Players who can't or don't play a lot of notes shouldn't frown on those who do, and vice versa."

Pick up the June edition of Bass Player magazine for the entire interview with Billy Sheehan, a self-described disciple and friend of Tim's. Also, check Tim's scrapbook for photos of Tim and Billy being inducted into the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame in 1999, along with many other bass greats.
