Who were the first bass players you really took notice of?
Growing up in the 90's they were the guys who got my attention but then I began noticing the classic rockers... bass was just so integral in the Who, Zep, Cream... Can't play without listening to these guys!

You should spend it on booze, women, and gambling. Then blow the rest. - <b>jasper383</b></div>
first music I heard bass on that made me notice was Fran Sheehan on the first Boston record.
