You would have to argue about #25 "Come as you are" as the bassline is ripped from Killing Joke 80's

Hi,

What about simple but supporting the song? I'm thinking My Girl with James Jamerson on bass, or Papa was a Rolling Stone (unknown bassist- Larry Graham?).
Just a different slant.
Cheers,
Mike

Yeah good list ,trying to get a copy of each,probably cant play most of em :lol: but do want all in the collection.

Here is one that i found the other day by chance,Paul does some really cool stuff,and i just fell in love with when it was released,still remember the video plain as day,16 at the time,but that bass line just mesmerized me.
A sign of what instrument i was to play (taken loosely of course) 8 years later ha.



sorry cant remember how to embed doh can some one do it for me please :D **Edit - done!**

Got a bit excited by the guitar, until I realised it was a Travis Bean, not a Kramer. Still, nice to see an Aluminium necked cousin.
