It's a synth-bass part. Originally, the tune had a simpler bass line, but Phil thought the song sounded too much like "1999" by Prince. So, a hotshot keyboard guy was brought in, and he came up with the new bass line on keys.

 

Live, Nathan East and Lee Sklar seem to double the line on electric bass, but the synth line is higher in the mix.

I don't think Greg worked on that record. I thought it mighta been Mic Murphy from The System, but Phil's site says different.




Saw Phillinganes playing with Toto a few weeks back. He hasn't aged a day.

 

Well David Frank programmed that album, so maybe he did do that bassline too.

 

Edit: Mic Murphy was the singer in The System. David Frank was the Keyboard wiz....
