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.
