Greetings fellow rhythm section people! Speaking as a drummer (bass players best friend - gotta stick together, huh?), I just wanted to know if all bass players are called "Dave", either actually or secretly... Over two thirds of all the bands I've been in over the last 30 years have featured bassists bearing that name - one band had three consecutive Daves!!! Also, why is the bass guy always chief van-packer? Your thoughts...?
