    I must say that Keith Duffy has added some quite interesting fills and syncopated lines to The Corrs ultra poppy songwriting. Alot of people here in The States have knocked this bands credibility, but I happen to think their music is very cleverly crafted! "In Blue" has a nice deep/rich bass tone, sounds like a 5 string to me. Great Band!
  2. Keith plays a Lakland 55-94

    Personally, I think that the basstone sounds too much processed (limited, compressed, etc), almost like a synth bass from time to time.
    I have heard all their work (my dad likes them, naughty guy) but I've never been thrilled by the bass at all.

    I forgot to mention his live tone as well. I saw them perform on "Good Morning America" and Keith was slammin. True about the compression/processing, but it still cuts thru in my opinion. He didn't play on all three records though, if I'm not mistaken. Here and there sporadically.
  5. Keith's bass line in The Corrs' "Radio" (unplugged) is among my faves - nice tone, too.
