    You know, for all the talking we do about bassists and their styles ("Jaco's too flashy," "Adam Clayton's too simple," etc.), I seldom hear Tom Hamilton's name mentioned. What do ya'll think of him? Personally, I think he's lines are fairly simple, but very tasty...

    ...and his tone is killer!

    Yeah, a lot of people around here seem to respect him, but there aren't too many threads about him. Good show. I love the guy personally. Things can get crowded with 2 guitarists, but he always seems to find room.
  3. I think he's a fanastic, underrated player. His lines always fit the songs perfectly. He's one of those unsung heroes of bass in rock, along with Robert DeLeo from STP.
  4. Great groove player.

    I thought this thread was going to be about Verdine White. Disappointment.

    If he could only do back flips!

    Very much respected, nonetheless.

    "Back in the Saddle" has to be the most kickass song of all time.

    Oh Yeah, the bass player in that band rocks.

  12. Considering Tom & Joe Perry (guitarist) are the founding Areosmith members he gets little limelight. I love his groove and tone, especially on the first 4 albums. He's one of my favs and will (if not already) go down as one of the rock bass legends :bassist:
