    though not really through the whole song- I really like the intro to "Sweet Child O'Mine"

    I believe the same applies to Slither, from Velvet Revolver. Another Duff moment.

    Doesn't YYZ by Rush have some subtle chorus on it?
    Also, some of that "Valley Girl"/"Ship Arriving Too Late" era Frank Zappa had chorus on the bass played by Scott Thunes (although I don't think it was specifically on those two tracks). It was on some of the Broadway the Hardway album, too: (I love the "Mr. Sting" line), and I think it was on some other tracks from other albums. I can't really remember.

    Ditto on all Cure songs Simion's uses the chorus on. Tool as well.

    Most of the chorus on cure songs are played on six string fender baritone/ basses

    I believe Ross played his Steinberger on this one. Epic bassline, with a great sounding thick & syrupy chorused tone.

    One of my favorites is Pino Palladino's bassline on Don Henley's "Sunset Grill". The combination of chorus + fretless bass = a beautiful & haunting tone.
