Or as Cat calls him, the U2 grandpa. You kidding me? His life does not suck. And I understand clearly he isn't Manring or Nitti or Pastorius but he's had some nice moments in bassline history that are good enough. I wouldn't say he's all-hat, no cattle. Zoo Station--listen to the chorus Heartland--subtle, hardly there & simple as pie but I love it New Year's Day Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World Man & a Woman Moment of Surrender Seconds Sunday Bloody Sunday All good songs. The Stones' "Satisfaction" is essentially a three-note song so don't fuss over quantity of notes in a melody.
