    I've been palying around on photoshop and I decided to put together a Collage of a lot of the great bass players from the past and the present (no, my picture isn't in here, that would be future) see how many you can name. I'll post the list in 2 weeks (9/26)
    Have Fun!

    Mingus, yeah oh yeah. Maybe there's a more soulful bassist, but I haven't heard him.

    The big three of electric up front is awesome.
  14. There's a little Demond Wilson and Ruiner Severhead in the heart, soul, and minds of each of those people.
