Jack Bruce and John Entwistle for the most part.
A combination of my friend Simon and Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads.
geddy lee - when i saw the moving pictures tour, i knew i had to try it. it took me about 3 years, but i finally got one.
Gene Simmons and Geddy Lee.
Gene, because of the 'cool' factor and the bass' role in the rhythm section, binding the whole band together. Gene's sound was more feel than technical wizardry, and it complimented their music perfectly.
Geddy, because of his style of breaking out of the rhythm section and becoming the lead melody. Rush was the first band I listened to that had 'depth' to their sound, where any single instrument could be the driving lead, and they did a great job of passing that lead around to everyone, often.
I've been influenced by countless others, but those two are what made me pick up the bass that first time so many years ago.
