PAUL"TUBBS"WILLIAMS R.I.P.

Sad news today of the passing of Britsh Jazz funk Legend and Number 1 Bass player PAUL"TUBBS"WILLIAMS.Paul who was the Bassist with top Brit funk band "LIGHT OF THE WORLD" from the age of 14,Was a mesmerising virtuoso bassist blessed with a prodigous amount of talent.Spotted from his teens he went on to blaze a trail through the late 70s and early eighties with the band.Inspiring many bass players on the scene and others starting out."INCOGNITO,THE TEAM were two of the "light of the world" offshoots that Paul was a member of.My group "Savanna" always admired his honesty and integrity in a vibrant north london scene with it's many different characters he stood out.Paul had moved to Holland in recent years running a successful studio and music education business called "Liquidspillers" working with P-funk legend George Clinton amongst many others.Paul will be sadly missed by all who knew him through his music and on a personal level. http://www.lightoftheworld.org.uk/
