One of the most iconic basslines of all time is what John Deacon thumps off at the beginning of Queen’s “Under Pressure.” The latest project of the Rockin’ 1000 (a group that believes you can never have too many musicians on a song) involves 200 bass players covering that intro. This took play in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The full story can be found here.
