Default Re: Bass Player-less band?

I played with a guitar player that used a Les Paul through a Marshall stack that was completely overdriven. He was a very rhythmic guitar player (& singer/songwriter) that generated a massive wall of noise constantly.

We went through 3 bass players, but none of them lasted since we liked the guitar/drums combo better than the guitar/bass/drums combo. Sonically, things just got too crowded with bass in there. I, as the drummer, had so much more room to maneuver. It was a really fun and unique situation to be in.

I'll throw out another one: Jeff Beck's "Guitar Shop" was just guitar, drums (Bozzio), and keys. That was a great combo - they just killed it live!
