Bill Clements

Bassist Bill Clements, began playing at the age of 13, inspired by Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, and other prog-rock bass giants. Bill decided early on, one way or another, bass playing would be his path. Forgoing a formal musical education, Bill instead embarked on an intensive program of practice and musical research. Unfortunately, Bill lost his right hand and forearm, December 1989 in an industrial accident. This catastrophic event would seemingly have ended his promising career as a musician. Yet within three months time, Bill was gigging again, and he hasn’t stopped since.

Clements has long received regional acclaim for his prolific style of bass playing, and has been favorably compared by Bass Player Magazine to such bass legends as Rocco Prestia and Jaco Pastorius…he lives in kalamazoo with a big dog. Recently Bill has been performing with The Bill Clements Axiom and has put out two instrumental albums on CDBABY.COM. Bill was featured in the april 2014 issue of U.K. BASS GUITAR MAGAZINE.
