Dunn & bruce street - shout for joy

Tallent played tuba in his high school band but, wanting to play rock ‘n’ roll instead, he noticed bass players were scarce. He taught himself the instrument by listening to the records of the time: James Jamerson, Donald “Duck” Dunn, Paul McCartney and Bill Wyman were some of his early influences.  He remained true to his understated influences while holding down the rhythm section in a seven-piece band consisting of two guitar players, two keyboard players, a sax player and a drummer. Tallent has stated that it was his understanding of the tuba’s role in an orchestra that helped him figure out the role of a bass player and allowed him to develop the style that later earned him the nickname “the foundation of the E Street Nation!”  (The tuba would come in handy later, with Tallent picking up that instrument to contribute to “Wild Billy’s Circus Story” on The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle .)
