Paul Goddard Bassist With The Atlanta Rhythm Section Dies

Atlanta, GA  - April 29, 2014


The posting on the Atlanta Rhythm Section FB page says it all: "We are saddened by the passing of
our bass player and dear friend, the legendary Paul Goddard. Rest in peace P.G."

The Atlanta Rhythm Section formed in 1970 with members Rodney Justo (vocals), Dean Daughtry
(keyboardist), Robert Nix (drummer), Barry Bailey (guitarist) and Paul Goddard (bassist). Coming
together as the house band at Studio One,  built by Rodney Mills with the support of music publisher
Bill Lowery, producer Buddy Buie and business manager Paul Cochran, along with songwriter/guitarist J.
R.Cobb, found little success with their earlier albums from 1972 to 1975, however ARS scored their first
top ten hit with "So Into You" after Ronnie Hammond joined as the lead singer. The album would find its
way to gold certification and as they say the rest was history with ARS scoring charted hits with "Doraville",
So Into You", Champagne Jam", Imaginary Lover", "I'm Not Gonna Let It Bother Me Tonight", "Angel", Do It
Or Die and the remake of the Classics IV song "Spooky" and multiple platinum and gold albums.

Paul Goddard was considered one of the greatest bassists in the business. He was 68.
