Are there any? It would be amazing to listen to.
Victor Wooten has a bass player named Anthony Wellington, great guy, great bassist,
He also has used Billy Sheehan, Steve Bailey, and Adam Nitti.
last week I had the opportunity to watch a 7 piece bass band.
What could be better than multiple bass players??!!!
Oh, wait...one bass player.
check out dos with mike watt and kira roessler. two basses and that's it! no drums, no guitars, nothing. it's neat.
Victor Wooten and Steve Bailey. The thing I like about them is that they now how to interact with eachother so well. I think it also helps that their basses(VW fretted/SB fretless)are different, as well as their playing styles.
Here you go. http://www.balancingactmusic.com/
the presidents of the united states of america have two bass players. meshell ndgeocello uses a backup player as well, i forget his name, but he is pretty sick.
man is the bastard.
palehorse have 2 bassists and are awesome
I've seen Stanley Clarke with a backup bassplayer.
As well, there are a number of performances with three or four bass players. Spinal Tap with "Big Bottom", BX3 (Stu Hamm, Billy Sheehan, and Jeff Berlin), The Day Bass Players Took Over the World (Steve Bailey, Bill Dickens, Vic Wooten, Oteil Burbridge), and Bass Day '06 (Vic Wooten, Stanley Clarke, and Marcus Miller on one stage. That's after Bx3 had their run about the stage)
All wicked cool stuff.
This is the only alternative/rock band with two bass players I know, they had a bunch of smallish hits in the 90s.
Let's not forgot the legendary (sadly long defunct) Cop Shoot Cop.
All Cows Eat Grass. It's a "wow" band.
king crimson had 2 bass players for a while in the 80's or 90's...they had 2 drummers and 2 guitarists too
there is a band called valeyra in brock texas that has two bass players...i hate their band..but i thought i would mention them..hahaha..if you are into that metal screamo stuff..then maybe you will like them..hahah
im not into bands with more than one bass player..it is sorta lame..especially when you want to try to play a song that they are playing!
(and kira roessler happens to be one of my idols, her work with black flag was great, she is an amazing lady)
Since when? Last I checked they had a 2 string bassist, a 3 stringed guitarist, and a no stringed drummer.
I was gonna say Ned's Atomic Dustbin, but someone got in before me
Local Aussie band Pre-Shrunk consisted of two bass players and a drummer - and they rocked supreme. They've split up now (though they re-formed for a quick show at the recent Warwick Bass Day in Melbourne).
I saw Little Richard .. he was using two great bass players... two drummers... very powerful backing for the great Little Richard..man can that guy sing !!
No, it's a 2 string bassitar, a 3 string bassitar and a no string drum kit.
Huh, I watched a clip of them on letterman: Is that the same thing as Mark Sandman did with Morphine on a few tracks? 1 bass string and 2 guitar strings?
I know they were friends, Mark Sandman and Prez's 3 stringist.
