We’re kicking off our annual “Reader Favorite Bassists” countdown with #10. For the second year in a row, Tim Starace made the list. Check out the videos (and more) that made Tim a reader favorite in 2018.
It’s hard to argue that Tim Starace from YYNOT is just another Geddy Lee clone playing Rush’s fabled music. Both statements would be incorrect. Anybody who can even play close to the brilliance that is Geddy on bass is worthy of attention, and Tim brings a whole next level of creativity, sound, and energy to the bass.
It is great to see YYNOT gaining so much traction with fans. The band performed at The Diesel in Detroit on October 27th, and once again, they’re putting out some great concert videos. Here’s their performance of Rush’s “Prelude” and “Freewill”, which once again finds Tim Starace handling the gritty bass and the keys on the tunes.
YYNOT has another video out, and this time, it features one of their original tunes. “Etheria” was written by guitarist Billy Alexander, and as always, sports that growly bass by Tim Starace. The buzz around this band is growing, which comes as no surprise to us. The tune is available on their .
YYNOT has just shared another one of their epic live videos, and one monster cover of Rush’s “Overture/The Temples of Syrinx,” from 2112. Tim Starace looks like he’s having a lot of fun nailing those lines!
Here’s another excellent clip from YYNOT’s Melbourne, Florida concert back in June, with one of my all-time favorite Rush tunes. “100% live, no overdubs… first time playing it after one quick run through,” the band shared. Once again, Tim Starace nails that tone (and handles the keyboard parts.)
YYNOT performed another concert in Melbourne, Florida last week. Here’s an excellent clip of them digging deep into Rush’s catalog. From 1975’s Caress Of Steel’s “Fountain Of Lamneth,” here’s their performance of “No One at the Bridge.” As always, Tim Starace nails the bass lines, and vocalist Rocky Kuner is absolutely amazing.
Big news from YYNOT: The band is getting ready to release their debut album. They just shared a new video with another original, which is part of the new record. As always, Tim Starace lays down the gritty bass lines on this one.
YYNOT packed the house for a concert in Melbourne, Florida earlier this month. The band just shared this live clip of the event, with the band performing Rush’s “The Spirit of Radio.” Tim Starace handles the bass as always, as well as the foot-controlled keyboards (Geddy style!)
YYNOT is back with a new Rush cover – and a new drummer. In this clip, they play “Natural Science” from Rush’s Permanent Waves. Joel Stevenett is the new drummer, and as always, the bass is handled by No Treble reader favorite Tim Starace.
