    Another guy that inspired me long ago...maybe not known as a great bass player...but a solid bassist/lead singer for one of the greatest punk bands X.

    Yes! Great player, great writer, great singer. A lot of his lines are very interesting: a kind of hyper-speed rockabilly that can be heard in followers such as Matt Freeman of Rancid.

    Wasn't a huge fan in their heyday but X and JD have definitely grown on me.

    I actually prefer a lot of John Doe's solo and post-X material over X. He was good in "Great Balls of Fire", too.
