Re: Favorite bass player? Only one allowed
McCartney period end of story that's all finis.
I've listened to PM for 45 years and been amazed. Versatility, melody, beat -- and he sings while doing it. Watching/listening to his playing on Wii Rock Band transcripts amazes even more. The transcripts aren't perfect, but wow.
Incidentally, some may laugh but Ringo's up there on drumming, too. Strawberry Fields is a classic. Listen to Lennon's acoustic startup version on Anthology and appreciate what Ringo's drums added to it.
