Eddie Jackson (born January 29, 1961),[1] also known as EdBass and One Take, is an American bassist for the progressive metal band, Queensrÿche, which he co-founded in 1982.


Jackson was born in Robstown, Texas.[1] He began playing the acoustic guitar at age 14. Two years later, he switched to electric guitar and bass guitar.[2] He also experimented with singing and drums.[2] Jackson met drummer Scott Rockenfield in late 1979[2] at Redmond High School,[3] and joined Rockenfield's band Cross+Fire in 1980.[4] The band's name later was changed to The Mob, and in 1982 to Queensrÿche. Jackson has been with the band since, and is notoriously known for putting pranks on the inside of album covers,[5] especially in the liner notes.[1]
