It might be better if you marked Pete Townshend as a GUITARIST... unless of course he overdubbed all of John Entwhistle's bass parts and we don't know about itdesmond wrote: ↑Mon Apr 12, 2021 4:30 pmThanks. And indeed, I had exactly the same problem to face. Here's how I *chose* to implement it:
Hypothetically, say we have an interview with Pete Townsend, the bass player with the Who. Now, if you asked someone, "Hey, you know that keyboard player Pete Townsend?", they'd likely go "Ugh, you mean the bass player, the guy from the Who?".
He's known as a bass player. But yes, he's into synths, has a bunch, and even played synth stuff on the Who recordings. I've no idea what his keyboard skills arelike, but he certainly plays keyboards.
Do I mark him as a keyboard player on the site?
BTW, Jean-Michel Jarre (the keyboard player!) collaborated with Pete Townshend for the very reason that he was a bit of a synth guru and that ability helped him to evolve The Who's sound (eg. synth/keyboard parts on 'Who Are You?')
