Marilyn Manson bassist Juan Alderete needs help.
Check out Juan in this 2015 Earthquaker Devices demo.
I was at the Saturday show, where I saw Juan’s command of the instrument early in his career with Racer X.
In 2016, Juan wrote about his time at the Musicians Institute (where Juan and I both attended) on his “Pedals & Effects” blog. You can read about it here: Throwback Thursday: Musicians Institute & Putter Smith
I, too, had studied with Putter Smith. What Juan omitted from his blog is that Putter was in a James Bond movie (now, how cool is that)! Here is a brief clip from “Diamonds are Forever” with Putter Smith as Mr. Kidd.
So, if you can, help Juan now as this is a massive blow to the bass community.
Thanks for your support.
