Featured Artist CHRIS WYSE
You’ve definitely heard Chris Wyse. Bassist for The Cult since 2001s “Beyond Good and Evil”, Chris has entrenched himself in the rock n roll scene with high profile gigs and fun side projects with some of rock’s elite. Working with Alice in Chains’ guitarist Jerry Cantrell, Ozzy Osbourne on the album “Under Cover”, Mick Jagger, Tal Bachman, as well as in numerous all star jam bands and projects. Not to mention that he’s been Bob Rock’s ‘go-to’ bassist for years, it all adds up to an impressive rock n’ roll work history.
In 2003, Bob Rock, who was then producing Metallica, urged Wyse to audition for the band. He was one of a handful of bassists selected to play with Metallica during the audition process, which was documented in the film Some Kind of Monster.
Chris also fronts the band OWL, singing and pushing the norms of double bass with overdrive, wah and other effects, showing all who listen just how innovative his playing can be.
