    Ok! lets see what absolute greatness the bass guitar really is. So great there's two on stage.

    No Youtube on tap, but check out Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk. Two stanky bassists ripping it up on most of their cuts.

    I'm not 100% sure, but several tunes by Memphis Black (60's soul band, also known as Memphis Soul Band) sound like there are two basses playing the bass line in unison. Might be a chorus, but I don't think so.

    1980? Were you kicking around then in the English punk/new wave scene, pretty cool.

    I'm sure you've all seen the ultimate all-star bass jam. Everyone seems to overplay but; of all people, Flea!

    Yes - I saw Delta 5 live in Brighton in the 1980s and they sounded great. The one with the fretless bass played low and bassy like Reggae dub, while the other bass player on a Fender, played higher up a bit like rhythm guitar. But it was interesting to see how 2 basses could work together in a band setting that wasn't about showing off at all. :)
