    The guy from War. I dunno his name, give me a little while to look it up.

    [EDIT] His name is B.B. Dickerson, on bass and vocals.

    [EDIT #2] I just saw you had him on your original list. I saw the name and didn't know who it was, I didn't see the band.

    Well, he still gets my vote!:bassist:

    Larry Graham is naturally funky, and he's got his own style and way of going about it. I met tinker barfield, he's the nicest guy, he gave me a hug and i hadnt even said anything to him yet.
