Carol Kaye is a musician and overall bad ass, best known as one of the most prolific and widely heard bass guitarists in history. Part of the Wrecking Crew in the 1960s, she has made over 10,000 recordings and is the most recorded bassist of all time. Be sure to peep this amazing video of her talking about her career. So inspiring.

  1. It’s so sad how they never got the recognition they deserved back then…

  2. Carol Kaye is badass! I had no idea who she was before Laura Veirs wrote a song about her… which is incredibly sad considering how prolific she was. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yQxWp_xBX4
