Bassist Michael Rhodes passed away March 4 at the age of 69. No cause of death was given, but his wife Lindsay mentioned he had been listening to John Coltrane shortly before his passing.
Among his over 700 session credits he earned through the years include recordings by Stevie Nicks, Elton John, Mark Knopfler, Joan Baez, John Fogerty, Michael McDonald, Dolly Parton, and JJ Cale.
Rhodes was a member of the Notorious Cherry Bombs with Vince Gill and played in a variety of Nashville groups. He was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame in 2019. In recent years, he'd been a touring member of Joe Bonamassa's band.
Michael is survived by Lindsay Fairbanks Rhodes, his wife of more three decades, a son Jason Rhodes and daughter Melody Wind Rhodes, and Lindsay’s sons Van and Weston Hayes; grandchildren Cayman Rhodes, Cora Rhodes, Wylder Rhodes, Kingsley Rhodes, Jenna Nicole Hillman and Ryley Bruce Hillman.Obituary
