The past year has not been kind to funk fans. A number of the greats have moved on. It saddens me to inform you of the death of Mark Adams, legendary bass player with the group Slave. It’s been reported that he passed away on March 5, 2011 though no official details of how he died can be found. There are some rumors though. Adams was one of the pioneers of funk bass as covered earlier on this site under Top Ten Funk Bassists of All Time. For more about Slave, see our other article on the group.
Rest in Peace bro. You will be remembered.
