John Regan R.I.P.


Bassist John Regan passed away at the age of 71. So far the cause of his death is unknown.

Regan worked both in the studio, as well as on live performances of artists like KISS guitarist Ace Frehley, Peter Frampton, the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, David Lee Roth, Robin Trower, Billy Idol and many more.

“I have been fortunate to have worked with artists that did not dictate on any level. Keeping in mind, that I have always approached my contribution to a recording or live performance as one of ‘facilitator.’ By that I mean it is always in the forefront of my mind to try and play my bass parts to best serve the song, singer and my fellow musicians. Peter Frampton in particular is a pleasure to work with in that regard. For the better part of 31 years, from 1979 through 2010, it was an honor to compose and perform his music”, Reagan told Songfacts in 2016.
