Cashbox July 25 Carol Kaye.png

Submitted by Don Graham

Carol Kaye, bass player, guitar player, teacher and recording session legend is not known to everyone. Fellow musicians know and admire her work, the general music loving public don’t know her but admire her work. The number of recordings she has played on is astonishing but numbers don’t tell the whole story. It’s the number of monster hits she’s played on that is mind blowing.

From playing guitar on Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” to The Righteous Brothers “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”, “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys.TV themes like “Mash (Suicide is Painless)", “Mission Impossible” to the infectious Bill Cosby Show theme “Kiss Me”, Carol Kaye has played on the soundtrack to a lot of our lives. Mine for sure. There’s too many to mention here so for a full list of the recordings and TV and movie themes she was part of go the www.carolkaye.com and you can see how many played in the background as you lived YOUR life.
