Bassist Tim Drummond joins rock ‘n roll heaven band

Tim DrummondJourneyman bassist Tim Drummond, 74, who performed with Neil Young, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Bob Dylan among many more rock legends, died January 10th.

Drummond’s death comes just three months after Rick Rosas, who played bass alongside Neil Young for nearly 25 years and was known as “Rick the Bass Player,” passed away at the age of 65 following a battle with cancer.

Rolling Stone’s Daniel Kreps writes that Drummond served as primary bassist on Young’s 1972 masterpiece Harvest and contributed to every studio LP the singer-songwriter released from 1974’s On the Beach to 1980’s Hawks & Doves.

Drummond was also a member of Young’s short-lived backup bands the Shocking Pinks, the Stray Gators and the International Harvesters. After reuniting with the Harvest crew for 1992’s Harvest Moon, Drummond’s two-decade-long tenure with Young ended with the rocker’s 1993 MTV Unplugged performance.

He also joined Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young on the road during the band’s infamous 1974 “doom tour” and performed on CSN’s 1977 single “Just a Song Before I Go.” Rolling Stone spoke to Drummond about his experiences on the 1974 CSNY trek, including the night he and Stills hung out with Dylan after a Minneapolis concert.

He also recalled what the tour was like onstage. “The guitar duels between Stephen and Neil got really loud,” Drummond said. “I’d just wander between the amplifiers and do my thing so I could hear myself. I was lucky I made it through that tour without ruining my ears.”
