    At least Ms. Weymouth could play bass, so had some form of gainful employment.
     
  2. And maybe Hugh McDonald.
     
  3. Actually, my truly most favorite bass hero is a short-order fry cook who stepped in when the bass player failed to show. Guy rocked, but I cannot locate the tv commercial. Four, five, six years ago.

    Finally there is something about Willie Dixon that captivates me when he was on stage. Every time I watch old videos he is larger than life, super chillax cool and, of course, superb.

  15. I say it so often that it's become a running joke with my friends, but I aspire to become Jenny Lee Lindberg.

    Rudy Sarzo, Steve Harris, Dana Strum, Jeff Pilson, Phil Kennemore, Phil Lynott. But if I'm feeling really laid back and want to just let the fingers do the talking, John Myung.
