    I realize most people might think they are a joke, but the bass playing on the first two albums was awesome. I can't seem to find any info on who the bass player was. On all thier videos, the same bass player can be seen. I think it might be Daryl Jones (The Lakland endorsee) am I right? If not, who?

    Hi my name is Dave. I played in a band in the 80's and our manager was a guy named (excuse spelling) Qureen Radox oor Q as he liked to be called. He was the bass player for Wham and Dion. Took over from him. It is Q in the video for 'Wham Rap' found your link in my search looking to hook up with Q again. Hope this settles it?

    The 80's is littered with fantabulous bass lines from mostly unknown where-are-they-now's.

    Such is the music business - in any decade.

    True, but the 80's is up there as a great decade for bass.

    Oh, I thought it was the 50s with bassists like Paul Chambers, or was it the 60s with McCartney or Jamerson, or the 70s with Jaco or Stanley Clarke.

    :confused:

    There are ALWAYS great players at any time period. Bach comes to mind in 1725.

    :D

    This record was released Dec. '89 - I guess that still counts as the '80s.

    Thank the gods that we don't have that '80s drum sound anymore - YUK!

    :eek:
