That's pretty much all there is to it. I mean, it's been discussed in the past, but we all need a constant reminder that we will never be as good as Tony. He can tear it up, but he doesn't. He plays the perfect bassline to every song he's ever played. I just bought Peter Gabriels greatest hits on CD (I have a bunch of his stuff on Vinyl) Whether his playing is barely there, or totally in your face, he rules every song. He, is just... Tony Levin. I wouldn't even call him an influence on me though because I know I'll never be that good. P.S. Aside from those Funk Fingers, how does he get that tone! Besides being the greatest bass player, he has the greatest tone! Is that DI box he has that important?
