    What's this obsession with McCartney Zack01- I mean Martha01? These are badly veiled McCartney threads you're posting.

  7. Compared to their lifestyles I would say Wilson and Simmons are less known for their bass playing.

    I would go with McCartney only because almost every age group at this time knows who he is, but again to most he is a Beatle not a bass player.

    Clearly Marth01 is Sir Paul McCartney. He comes here when people yell at him for wings. He then starts threads like this to feel better. I still say he's the biggest star who plays bass. Buck up Paul!

  12. Bootsy Collins plays the biggest bass that is a star. It looks like it's about 2 feet in diameter.

    Paul McCarthy but I really think Sting even people don't acknowledge that he is a bass player ,positivily, and absolutely.

    Most fans of Beetles can name everyone from that band, and most of the people knows beetles.

    I wouldn't say most fans of beetles can necessarily name all of the Beatles :D

    I saw this giant, muscled-up guy playing bass in a club in Augusta Ga., this was probably in the early to mid 70s. The bass looked tiny in his huge hands. I later learned it was the Hulkster.

    I didn't said that everyone can name the beetles. I said that they have bigger crowd of fans and they probably know all of those british rockers.

    Anyway I got the new name J.S. Bach he's the F**kin' superstar ,all right. Back in the days ,I guess.
