Thread Name: Opinions of Bass Players.
Subject: RE: Opinions of Bass Players.
No bass players have ever offered me their opinion!!!

More seriously...
Many above seem to name bass players from their fave bands etc
Some may not neccessarliy have been 'great' bass players (technically) - but nevertheless made all the right noises to push buttons to suit taste.
One of my fave ever bands was Wishbone Ash - much as I loved their (early) output, I would still hesitate to call Martin Turner a superb bass player - he just did the perfect job with that particular material.
Is this making sense?
But, to stick a few 'faves' up there alongside everyone elses....

Stand up bass....
Danny Thompson
David Bowie (I'm with you on that choice Tom!)

Leccie bass....
Richard Sinclair (Caravan, Hatfield & the North, Camel)
Glen Cornick (Jethro Tull)

Cheers! - Duncan
