*NEWS FLASH*
I know many people have e-mailed Bass Player
magazine, including me, and have gotten "rude"
onses. Well here is one:

Laura, 
We have put some WOMEN bass players in the magazine. 
A partial list would
include: Carol Kaye, Me'Shell N'Degeocello, Rhonda S.
 (from The Artist's Band),
Debby Hastings (of Bo Diddley), Mona (of Sammy Hagar's
 Band), and Alice Genese
(of Sexpod). And that's just since April.

Truth is that we've featured many women, but we are
 not going to feature
somebody just on the basis of their gender. If they 
have something to offer in
terms of insight, skill, or technique, then we welcome 
all comers.

Unfortunately, there are far more men playing bass then women,
 and it's a
problem that goes much deeper into social issues then 
this magazine is prepared
to go. And if this isn't a good enough answer to your 
queries, then I suggest
that you take a look at the "Direct Out" editor column 
from July 1997. In there,
then editor Karl Coryat discussed this very topic 
(which has come up
repeatedly).

As for D'Arcy, she has refused repeated requests
 for interviews.

Sincerely,
Greg Olwell
Administrative Assistant
