          Geddy Lee and John Paul Jones.
          The other day I wanted to type and use a capital "3" to make my point, but all I got was a "#"

          A tone of 0.0000000000034857487237945287 hz is 13 orders of magnitude lower than the human threshold.

          Still, this is well within the capabilities of the P Bass.

                          The question was "really took notice of?", not "became enamored of?"

                            first music I heard bass on that made me notice was Fran Sheehan on the first Boston record.


                            I read somewhere recently that Tom Scholz actually played the bass parts on that album! I think I may be able to dig it up if you're interested.

                              Of course there was the usual McCartney, Squire, enumerous R&R bassists.
                              The one that made me think "wtf is he doing?" was Stanley Clarke, and that was back in the 70's.

                                When I was young and growing up with 60's music I really didn't pay any attention to the bass or what it was doing - I just loved the music. The first bassist that really made me sit up take notice was Jim Fielder on the first two BS&T records. After I started playing the thing, then of Entwistle, Bruce, McCartney all became a lot more interesting.

                                The first guy I saw live that really knocked my socks off was Chris Squire on their first US tour - it was just a couple weeks after Wakeman joined the band.
