    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.

    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.
