    <p><strong>Legendary bassist Bob Babbitt, who as a member of famed Motown studio crew known as The Funk Brothers played on hits by Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and dozens more, died Monday (16 July) in Nashville after suffering complications from brain cancer.</strong></p> <p>Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on 26 November 1937, Babbitt moved to Detroit, where he began playing bass in the late 1950s. After a brief stint in Stevie Wonder's band in 1966, a year later he accepted an invitation to join the Motown studio ensemble called The Funk Brothers. (The group also included renowned bassist James Jamerson; Babbitt and Jamerson traded duties on various sessions.)</p> <p>During his five-year tenure in The Funk Brothers, Babbitt played on a impressive number of Motown classics. Stevie Wonder's Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours), Marvin Gaye's Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology), Smokey Robinson & The Miracles' Tears Of A Clown, Edwin Starr's War, The Temptations' Ball Of Confusion - just some of the hits that benefited from Babbitt's robust, hooky and funky lines. </p> <p>After leaving Motown, Babbitt performed with a diverse array of artists, including Jim Croce, Bette Midler, Frank Sinatra and Gladys Knight & The Pips. In 2009, he recorded with Phil Collins on the singer's Going Back, a collection of '60s Motown and soul gems.</p> <p>For the last 26 years, Babbitt lived in Nashville. He is survived by his wife, Ann, and their three children, Carolyn, Joseph and Karen.</p> <p>In 2010, MusicRadar recognized Babbitt's immense talents by <a href="http://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/30-amazing-unsung-bassists-in-no-particular-order-286816/11">ranking him number 11 in our list of 30 amazing unsung bassists</a>.</p> <a href="http://www.musicradar.com/news/bass/funk-brothers-bassist-bob-babbitt-dies-aged-74-553522">Read more about Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt dies aged 74 at MusicRadar.com</a><img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/673/f/8601/s/2179a25e/mf.gif' border='0'/><div class='mf-viral'><table border='0'><tr><td valign='middle'><a href="http://share.feedsportal.com/viral/sendEmail.cfm?lang=en&title=Funk+Brothers+bassist+Bob+Babbitt+dies+aged+74&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicradar.com%2Fnews%2Fbass%2Ffunk-brothers-bassist-bob-babbitt-dies-aged-74-553522" target="_blank"><img src="http://res3.feedsportal.com/images/emailthis2.gif" border="0" /></a></td><td valign='middle'><a href="http://res.feedsportal.com/viral/bookmark.cfm?title=Funk+Brothers+bassist+Bob+Babbitt+dies+aged+74&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.musicradar.com%2Fnews%2Fbass%2Ffunk-brothers-bassist-bob-babbitt-dies-aged-74-553522" target="_blank"><img src="http://res3.feedsportal.com/images/bookmark.gif" border="0" /></a></td></tr></table></div><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/139262349802/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/2179a25e/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/139262349802/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/2179a25e/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/139262349802/u/49/f/8601/c/673/s/2179a25e/a2t.img" border="0"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/musicradar/all/news/~4/ypRgz--uCDE" height="1" width="1"/>
