Gear run with Roscoe Beck (Leonard Cohen)

Roscoe Beck has been a mainstay on the Los Angeles and Austin, Texas music scenes for many years. Originally from Poughkeepsie, New York, Beck moved to Texas in his teens and was soon integrated into the thriving blues and jazz communities in Austin. Relocating to Los Angeles in 1979, he has played and recorded with artists such as Leonard Cohen, Robben Ford and the Blue Line, Jennifer Warnes, Joe Ely, Eric Johnson, and the Dixie Chicks. He is currently the bassist and musical director of Leonard Cohen's band. We spoke with Roscoe Beck and bass tech Chris Bynum in Odense, Denmark on tour with Leonard Cohen.
