I was just watching a live Bad Co. concert recored in 2008 and even though the music was rather simple it all had a great groove to it. The leads were nothing spectacular, the bass was solid yet rather easy to play, yet the music still had something that grabbed me. They played mostly their top hits and did a great job considering I was listening to their albums when I was in junior high school some 20+ years ago. people on here talk about many bands and great bass players but I submit Bad Co. as one of the very influential rock bands that many musicians don't mention for one reason or another. I see them as up there with CCR, Hendrix and many others for what they contributed musically. None of them (bad Co.) were incredible musicians, but they sure got the job done.
