Nick Lowe joins Ry Cooder tour

Nick Lowe joined guitarist Ry Cooder as a bassist for his latest tour, which kicked off in June. The duo is planning to head to Australia.

Lowe is best known for his songwriting efforts including (What’s so Funny Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding, Cruel to be Kind, and I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass.

“I was very pleased [to be asked] because I’m a great fan of his,” Lowe says. “And frankly, he could have a much better bass player than me, because I hardly ever play it any more; I only play a bass when he asks me to do it. So I’ve got this amateur style, which he thinks is quite agreeable,” he laughs.
