    Tal & Julie are great, but I've always loved both Aimee Mann's playing when she was with 'Til Tuesday, and Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde. Not flashy, but great bass lines!

    The late Bianca Halstead of Betty Blowtorch.

    I just LOVE Tal Wilkenfeld. Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scott's is just amazing. She just plays what's right, no showing off (even though she certainly has the chops). Something really lyrical and beautiful about her soloing, nice groove, amazing (Sadowsky) tone. She's the real deal IMO.

    I saw Rhonda Smith w/Jeff Beck, and while she is more than good, I was a bit disappointed.

    Going to see Prince soon, I'm looking forward to seeing Bass Ida. :)

    Well, I'm just back home after seing Prince. Great show, great band!

    Ida was very good, and played what appeared to be a Sandberg PM4. Sounded great, lots of punch.

    Prince said it best: "her name is Ida, and she is funky" :)

    Bass babes from my youth.

    Kim Gordon "quintessential thunderbird babe". Of course she is pushing 57 now. but still awesome.

    Kim Deal, the bass playing darling with the angelic voice. We all get older.
