“Pick it up, play it, hey, it sounds great.”
Yamaha artist Jack Bates has spent the last few years playing bass in Peter Hook and the Light, before being asked to join the reformed The Smashing Pumpkins last year. During their US and European stadium ‘Shiny and Oh So Bright’ tour Jack took the time to chat with us about following in the footsteps of his dad Peter Hook, and how he achieves that Joy Division and New Order sound with his Yamaha BBs.
Jack plays the Yamaha BB734a.
