    He's been mentioned on a few "under-rated bassists" threads here, but I don't think he gets enough mention. I recently joined a band that does some classic Heart tunes (Barracuda, Crazy on You).

    No, we aren't talking Chris Squire here, but you are going to be hard pressed to find more melodic lines, not to mention a great groove with the drummer.
     
  2. My band does a few Heart songs too. A lot of fun to play.

    His bass playing on the intro to "Straight On" is still one of my favorites.

    I had the pleasure of seeing him play quite a few times here locally during Heart's early years, probably at his best at show in Vancouver, BC. He used to work part-time at BassNW, I met him there - very nice guy!

    Anybody know if he is still in the business - retail, performance, or otherwise?

    Very cool - thanks (I can also hear the bass part nice and clearly).
