      Oh no, very sad news indeed and played on 'Off the Wall' and 'Thriller' of course. Top, top player, interestingly when Leo Fender was developing the 'Stingray' bass for Musicman (a bass designed primarily for the new at the time technique of slap bass) Louis Johnson was heavily consulted and indeed received a prototype Stingray bass.

      I used to watch his hilariously laidback 'teach yourself slap bass' instruction video with this classic along the lines of. "People ask me all the time how I do this and I say I dunno I just do..." thanks for that insight Louis thought you were teaching me.

        Louis's pop-bass solo on Stomp is the best bit of the best record ever.
