    They also had the "bass synthisizer" in that song. One was playing a double neck bass. And of course they had the "lead" bass

    and....this summer I did a tour which featured the Manring/Lawson/Walker Trio. That is: percussionist/loopmeister Rick Walker along with Michael Manring and Steve Lawson on basses! It was INCREDIBLE! And there might be a live album in the works.....
    Also...Sadhappy with (again) Michael Manring and another bassist (sorry can't think of his name right now...Paul something.....geez I need coffee)

    I used to be in a band called Powerdrill with two bassists (Buffalo NY). Probably haven't heard of us. Our only claims to fame were opening for both Bongwater and the Melvins.

    I had a band called the Earth Movers which was 3 basses plus drums. We used to say our drummer was OK because he had a BASS drum :)

    We did all covers, including the Tap song "Big Bottom", "Whipping Post", "Godzilla", "Dazed and Confused", "Birdland" , etc.

    On "Dazed and Confused" I even bowed my P-bass in a Jimmy Page homage :)
