    Can you all name some good bands with brothers (one of whom plays bass)? Colin Greenwood of radiohead is one of my favorite bassists and Johhny is an amazing guitarist IMO and i was wondering if there were some other talented teams out there.
     
  2. Is this for your homework? (just kidding..) Ok..
    the Stone Temple pilots? Robert DeLeo and the guitar player are brothers if i'm not wrong..
    Wes Borland's new band.. I think his player plays bass.


    mm .. hanson? mm uh, nope..

    The Montgomery Brothers - so Wes Montgomery was a Jazz guitar legend, but he also made albums with his brothers - Monk who played bass and another brother whose name escapes me temporarily - who played piano. I have an album called Groove Yard, which has some nice tunes and playing, from all three.
