It's a tough one to pull off in a live mix. The overdriven tones tend to be buried by ignorant guitar players. If you listen to isolated Macca you wouldn't believe how slotted the bass is in the mix, but together it's delicious. JimmyM has a bunch of tracks, he can probably tell you exactly where the emphasis goes.
A useful trick is everyone playing reasonable volume levels. It's so much easier to hear tone when it's not blasting your ears.
How much do you want to spend? A pedal can get you most of the way for a lot less than the tube amp. Mesa d180.
