Check out Gail Ann Dorsey playing the "The man who sold the world" on a big white Stingray. Who cares whether Bowie or Cobain's version is better, just listen to that 'Ray :D Posted a bio on Gail as well

Meshell does it for me - lots of variety of styles - do yourself favour and check out her stuff! - 'Fellowship' and 'andromeda' do it for me - what a knock-out songwriter/bass player.

YES got me into (serious) music and Chris Squire got me playing the bass.


I could listen to them/him all day:

Snap! Boris - Chris Squire hooked me into bass - my older sister had Yes albums and i wondered what that 'front of mix' instument was - rick-o-sound with copious effects - chris is an amazing player - the perfect man to really 'wind-up' those bass 'traditionalists' out there ,I smartly took up bass and got myself a beautiful black rickenbacker - just like the one timi was selling recently - saw Yes live at the Hammersmith Odeon - the 'Fish' is a favourite, find myself playing those opening harmonics on tune-up on the odd occasion - strange to see steve howe playing them on the vid when its the bass on 'Fragile'.

Nice to meet another fan! YES are a 'bit marmite' I guess, my wife hates them :D

I first saw them live when they did the Relayer tour and again a couple of years back when they did the 35th anniversary tour. Doesn't time fly....

If you haven't already got it, I can highly recommend the Yes Symphonic DVD. Details here, UK details though sorry :oops:

Ray Brown! This doesn't have him soloing but it shows some sweet sweet walking and the trades are hilarious.

While we are on the double bass "vibe" I've always liked Ron Carter
