Favourite Drummer, Bass player Combo


Junior Member
Steve Priest And Mick Tucker

Definately with you on this one. Their work on the Desolation Boulevard album together is particularly awesome with Mick's drum solo on The Man With the Golden Arm and Steve's thumping bass line on Turn It Down and brilliant bass solo on My Generation.

Ron Carter and Elvin Jones. Ron pushing it whilst Elvin hangs back behind - absolutely beautiful.

Hey, can anyone enlighten me on why the relationship between the bassist and drummer is important? If not, can they direct me to a thread which already has a discussion?
