Eric Avery, absolutely.
Dude Mars Cowling ripped with Aldridge! Saw them live back in th 70s....most people don't even know!
I ended up with the black p bass kristen recorded and toured with before her death. It's up there with the best sounding p basses of all time.
Ill get some better pics when home from vacation.
Peter Baltes on "Balls to the Wall" by Accept. Absolutely killer P-bass tone, as was the case for all the band's '80s records.
Francis Buchholz on "Tokyo Tapes" by Scorpions. Blistering live P-bass tone on one of the greatest live albums ever made.
Oh, and don't forget Tom Fowler on "Roxy and Elsewhere." He dominates this track, which is built around his bass riff. Scott Thunes said it was Fowler's tone on this album that made him into a P-bass man.
Bruce Thomas-Watching The Detectives.
Duck Dunn-Soul Man
John Deacon- Another One Bits The Dust.
Chuck Rainy- Peg.
Pino Palladino-Chicken Grease.
How did you come into possession of this bass, kid, and who is the man you are pictured with?
I am close friends with Kristen's brother and was able to purchase the bass shortly after Kristen's death 22 years ago.
I've left the bass as is except for replacing the emg pickups with bartolinis that went on the fritz not to long after buying the bass.
Bruce Thomas has produced some of my favorite P bass tones ever. However, the recording of Watching the Detectives slightly predates the Attractions (despite the billing on the single). Andrew Bodnar of Graham Parker's backing band, the Rumour, plays bass on that track.
ABSOLUTELY and the first one to come to my mind.
Dale Peters with the James Gang has one of my favorite P bass tones ever.
Has anyone mentioned Sting? I think the tone he gets with his 50s P-Bass is superb.
I know it's not rock but since the OP mentioned the 70s funk players, I think Jamareo Artis (Bruno Mars band) is an outstanding bassist with a true Funk P-Bass tone.
Special mention to Eva Gardner.
Deacon on A Day at The Races
The tone on my P Bass with EB flats and a 2.75 V-Pick thru a GK MB212 is pretty damn good.
Another One Bites the Dust was recorded on a MusicMan StingRay. Just listen and you'll be able to pick out the Ray's distinctive treble buzzes during the pre-choruses.
Dragon Attack has a great P-Bass tone.
According to pictures I've seen and the "Wrecking Crew" film and book, Joe Osborn is/was a Jazz Bass guy.
