Do Tell !
dare I say old school John McVie
Ferguson, si! But he is no longer with us. How about some of the living who play 'em right: Larry Taylor. Preston Hubbard. Bob Stroger. Ronnie James Weber. E.G. McDaniel. Marty Ballou. Randy Bermudes. Steve Gomes. Mookie Brill...just to get us started.
Beat me to 'em. I would have liked to add Paul Thomas to the list......R.I.P.
The best rhythm section I ever saw backing Nick Curran had Eric Pryzgoki on bass.
...and don't forget David Hood
Jack Myers > _________
I dig me some Johnny B.!
The man HAS IT on the low end, fellas.
For my $$$, he's the top
Eric's very good - he's on Chris Ruest's CDs and...with Anson, maybe?
I forgot to mention Ronnie Earl's bass players, guys like Per Hanson, Mudcat Ward, etc.
Larry Taylor, Ronnie James Weber or Preston Hubbard among the living.
Howzabout Nathan East? One of my favs.......
Big Crawford (played upright on Muddy Waters' earliest Chess sides)
John McVie (well, before Fleetwood Mac abandoned the blues)
Stephen Thompson (ace bassist for John Mayall's Blues from Laurel Canyon and The Turning Point)
John Kahn (bassist for Mike Bloomfield and Friends for several years)
Tommy Shannon (bassist for Johnny Winter's first two Columbia albums and then with Double Trouble)
Tony Stevens (Savoy Brown)
Jerry Arnold (Howlin' Wolf; the original Butterfield Blues Band)
Hard to beat John McVie in the early days of PG's Fleetwood Mac
John Paul Jones
Nick St Nicholas
George Porter, Jr.
Finally someone mentions Carl Radle, thank you!
