Anthrax’s Frank Bello appears on the November cover of Bass Player magazine with his Frank Bello Fender signature bass.
Inside the issue, Bello touches on songwriting.
“When I’m writing a bass line for a song, I try to play a tasty little story within the song that adds to the music,” Bello tells Bass Player. And for Bello, sometimes less is more. He tells the magazine that sometimes it’s best to stick to a song’s progression rather than trying to force something into the song.
The hard-hitting bassist closed out the interview with some encouragement for kids to get involved in music.
“I think too many kids are playing video games and getting distracted instead of picking up instruments, creating music, and feeling good about something in their lives.”
