    I don't know, but I remember thinking how great the bass lines and tone was when I first heard them in the cinema as a young'un.

    edited to add.

    This from Wiki: Bass: Mike Porcaro, William David Hungate, Max Bennett, David Allen Ryan, Wm. J. Bodine, Dean Cortez, Harold Cowart

    Porcaro and Hungate don't surprise me at all. All of those Toto guys were "go to" studio musicians in L.A. at that time.

    Something tells me it was Carol Kaye. I just remember lots of nice chunky flatwound P w/pick tones on it!
    Have to look it up now . . .

    Funny, I picked up the soundtrack just yesterday because I wanted to learn the many, many great bass lines on it :)

    weird..for some reason i always thought the legendary Tommy Cogbill played bass on the grease sound track

    or like most of these soundtracks a few bassists were used but I always thought Tommy played the bassline for "your the one that I want"

    the bass tone on the recording just dosent scream porcaro or dave hungate to me.....Max Bennet maybe

    hmm interesting
