Paul Goddard of ARS

Does anybody remember this great bass player from the '70s/early '80s? He played with the Atlanta Rhythm Section from 1971 to 1982 or 83. Another player with great tone...whether playing his Fender P (1971 to 1976) or his Rickenbacker 4001 (1976 to 1983) and wonderfully tasteful basslines. For a true treat find yourself a copy of the 1978 ARS live album "Are You Ready" and listen to the bass solo in 'Another Mans Woman'. Simply awesome!

Yes indeed. I am from North of Atlanta and those guys were brilliant. Just a bunch of studio guys that wrote smart, groovy Southern Rock. Like alot of bandsback thenthey were more interestingin the early days. I have most their stuff on vinyl. While I love a lot of their stuff, prior to Champaign Jam I keep pulling out "Red Tape" the most. Paul was a monster. That was the days a player did not have to be pretty to make it.

Yeah, Paul is from Rome, Ga which is only about 35 miles from where I live. Too bad his 70s career didn't carry over into some new stuff in the 80s, 90s, and beyond.

'Red Tape'....I've always likes the tune 'Cuban Crisis' off that album.

"Rock and Roll Alternative" was another great album by them.....and "Dog Days", too!

Calhoun! I've played many nights at the 'Moose Lodge' out on Red Bud road behind the old 'Calhoun Music Land' (now a Mega Church). I've played out there with Mike Flippo, whose band 'Fireweed' played there for years.

And I remember every one of those bands/musicians.....still listen to some of them.

Incidentally, I'm from Summerville. Don't know if you're familiar with it or not.

What ever happened to ol' Paul Goddard? The Champagne Jam bass solo was the first one I ever learned! [smilie=music-smiley-005.gif]

In my first years as a bassist, I was a pick player, like Tiran, Goddard was another pick player that I really admired! Killer band with a killer bassist!

Last I heard, Paul was working in a record store in the Atlanta area...........but that was in the early '90s.

Jerry, Tiran Porter and Paul Goddard sort of inspired me to play more with a pick. I now use one maybe 50% of the time.

I heard Paul has been working in computers, either programming or IT of some sort.
I love being alive and I will be the best man I possibly can.
I will take love wherever I find it and offer it to everyone who will take it....
seek knowledge from those wiser....
and teach those who wish to learn from me.

Yes he indeed turned to IT....worked with him for a couple of years at a school supply company in Dulutlh....was tickled to death to be working with someone in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. He is one hell of a stand up guy and more fun than a barrel of monekeys. He really downplays his roots. One of the nicest men I ever met!!
