Dream Rhythm Section

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Red Wonder, Feb 17, 2005.

  1. Okay TB'ers here's the question. If you could choose one fantasy rhythm section who would it be?

    Geddy Lee and Omar Hakim... :bassist:
  2. DWBass

    DWBass The Funkfather

    Well mine was a real one for about 12 years. Scott Ambush and Joel Rosenblatt from Spyro Gyra. Joel is now gone so if I want a dream rhythm section, it would be for Scott and Joel to be together again.

    I would have loved to hear Jimmy Johnson alongside Carlos Vega!!
  3. Richard Bailey/Randy Hope-Taylor.

    Keith Carlock/Tom Barney.

    Sorry but, in this instance, reality seems to beat anything I can come up with in terms of a "fantasy" partnership. :) :)

  8. Stanley Clarke...and...i don't know many drum players...which leads me to...Stanley Clarke/Jon Fishman
  9. McCartney/ Bohnam. They did kinda play together in public once. But there were like 50 other guys jamming too.

    Buddy Rich/Nick Oliveri; would be pretty weird.

    Billy Conway/Sting; not as good as Conway with Sandman but would be great none the less.

    Sometimes fantasies can be reality.

    I had a house band gig with Sean Chase (Walter Beasley) on drums and Leroy "Scooter" Taylor (Marcus Miller) on keys.
