He turned out to be a gifted musician & composer, playing piano, bass, guitar, drums & sax in junior high and high school. Eddie’s true love was the bass guitar; by age 17 Eddie continued his dream, playing bass for Motown’s Norman Whitfield, supporting artists like the Temptations, The Undisputed Truth, & other Motown greats.

When  Motown moved to LA, Eddie left Detroit, moved to Hollywood and made a name for himself as a premier “A list” session bass player. He lent his rock solid bass licks to recordings by Quincy Jones, Barbra Streisand, Herbie Hancock, Santana, Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, the Pointer Sisters, James Brown & a who’s who of popular music icons.
