Keith Wilkinson (Squeeze)

Among the many stellar bassists to anchor the various Squeeze line-ups was Keith Wilkinson who began his tenure with the tuneful lads on the Difford & Tilbrook self-titled slab waxed in 1984.


As was 1980s vogue, Keith boosted the treble, and doubled on fretless for a series of stellar Squeeze sides which somehow failed to make a significant dent in the marketplace including Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti (1985), Babylon and On (1987), and Frank (1989).


Wilkinson also helmed releases by Roger Waters, and his former Squeeze band-mate Jools Holland, among others. When last sighted by KYBP, Keith was working with The Jar Family.
