Bass player or drummer

By Ben "Iron" Damper ·
Okay, I hardly ever start threads here but read many of them. I enjoyed the guitar player threads and since I'm a bass player and half a$$ed drummer myself I'd like to know your favorite bassists or drummer.

Geddy Lee (the reason I started playing bass) and Neil Peart!

Excellent choices!
I'd say all three of the guys in Rush are tops in their game indeed.

Neglected to mention them in my longer reply to this thread. Plus incredible vocals!

What do you think of the Bx3 tour?

by jdclyde In reply to Bass player or drummer

Bill Sheehan and Stu Hamm are both incredible.

Wish they would come around Michigan.

Are excellent! I saw Sheehan back in high school when he was with Mr.Big. He did an AMAZING bass solo that seemed to last forever.
I've not had a chance to witness Stu live in person. I have a few of his CD's, excellent as well.

Was something to see!

by jdclyde In reply to Both

Saw Bill back with David LeeRoth right after the split. The Vai/Sheehan dueling was sooooo sweet.

Saw Stu once long ago with Satriani and once with Vai.

Got to agree about the Rush comments.

Man that's some good luck JD to have caught Sheehan and Vai live back in the DLR days. That show was a must see back in the day. I'm from Iowa and then didn't hit town so I missed it. But now that I live in DFW\TX I get almost all of the good shows.

Back in the day???

by Oz_Media In reply to Luck

What do you mean back in the day? It wasn;t THAT longf ago, was it? No it was couldnt be...18 years ago.

That still isn't 'Back in the Day' though. Gawd, I remember when Van Halen was a new act on the rock circuit.

Eat em and smile

original release date was back in 1986, the year after I graduated. That qualifies as "back in the daze".
