60th Anniversary P Bass Notes & Trivia: 1984

Jimmy Page forms his first post-Zep band, which promptly records a huge nuclear hit song and introduces the world to the impeccable fretless Precision chops of a talented U.K. bassist then only in his early 20s (who later became a Fender signature artist).

What was the band, what was the hit song, who is the bassist and what is his appropriately coined nickname?

Answer: The Firm, “Radioactive,” Tony Franklin, “The Fretless Monster”
