Giuseppe Henry "Pino" Palladino[1] (born 17 October 1957) is a Welsh bassist and record producer. A prolific session musician, he is perhaps best known for playing with The Who (following the death of founding member John Entwistle[2]) from 2002 to 2016, The Soultronics from 2000 to present, and the John Mayer Trio from 2005 to present.

Palladino plays a late-1970s, fretless, Music Man StingRay bass guitar, a fretted Fender Precision, and a Jaguar bass. His playing has earned him custom instruments bearing his name.[3]

Early life

Born in Cardiff to an Italian father from Campobasso and a Welsh mother,[4] Palladino began playing electric guitar at age 14 and bass guitar at 17. He bought his first fretless bass one year later, playing mostly R&B, funk, and reggae with a rock and roll backbeat.[5]
