Alexander Titov is a legendary bass player that worked with some of the most prominent rock musicians of the Soviet and post-Soviet era. His collaboration with Boris Grebenshikov and "Aquarium" in particular reveals a staggering variety of sounds, styles and riffs. Alexander Titov's bass lines transformed my understanding of bass from being a supporting instrument into being the most important instrument in a song. I realized that great bass can make a song practically by itself. The rhythm, the melody, the emotion, the accents - no other instrument can combine all that and become the very fabric of the song. Happy Birthday, Sasha!
