Herbie Flowers is an English musician specialising in bass guitar, double-bass and tuba. He is highly regarded as one of Britain's best-known session bass-players.

2018 saw him playing bass guitar on the 40th Anniversary UK Arena Tour of "Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of H.G.Wells' War of the Worlds" - which he also played on the original 1976 recording.

In the 40's he played tuba in Tiffin Boys School Band.

In the 50's he played tuba in the RAF Central Band.

In the 60's he formed Blue Mink.

In the 70's he joined T. Rex.

In the 80's he formed Sky with John Williams.

In the 90's he taught bass studies at Ardingly College, Trinity College and the Dartington International Summer School.

This century he's gone back to playing jazz on the double bass, as well as still doing recording sessions, plus the odd after dinner speech about his sixty years in the music business. More name dropping…

He has worked for Bowie (Space Oddity etc), Lou Reed (Transformer), Nilsson (Schmilsson), Henry Mancini (Pink Panther), Sir Elton (Burn Down the Mission), David Essex (Rock On – incidentally, produced by Jeff Wayne), Sir Paul Mac (Give My Regards to Broad Street), George Harrison (Somewhere in England), Ringo (Come Smell the Roses), loads of Dusty’s recordings, Clive Dunn (Grandad – which Herbie composed!! )

Google him for upcoming very popular local Sunday Morning Jazz Breakfasts in the Brighton Corn Exchange, and for details of his "Dome RockShop", an intensive annual week long music course for young musicians aged 14 - 19.
