I'm dying to hear the new double album...In their very best Bono, they're saying it's their strongest effort yet. Funk rock from Venus

My favourite bass bit at the moment is Radiohead's "Airbag." If you crank it up loud, it's really delicious...I love the part near the end where the rumble speeds up and gives way to the lead guitar. It's mechanical and moving all in the same breath.

Wow,in a thread about bass,you'd think more people would mention more funk & jazz.
Somebody did mention Jaco,but come on.
Listen to something besides alternative rock or whatever.

You can hear great bass playing in some of these records:
Parliament-Mothership Connection
Curtis Mayfield-Superfly
James Brown-In the Jungle Groove
Joni Mitchell-Heijra
Stanley Clarke-Stanley Clarke
Sly & The Family Stone-Fresh(If You Want Me To Stay has one of the greatest bass grooves ever)
Rick James-Street Songs
And the new Donald Fagen(assuming you know who he is)album has some fantastic bass licks.

It seems that most rock bass players just play the bass line to keep the beat, which is, in my opinion, a waste of an instrument. Truly great bands (Zeppelin, Floyd, Jane's Addiction) use the bass to add to the music. Drums too. Anyone can keep a beat, and it's kind unnecessary because the beat is implied in the rhythm. Great bass players provide the rhythm of the song, and really add another dimension. (See P-Funk for amazing bass. Or Jane's Addiction. There's like 4 songs going on at once in Jane's songs. And P-Funk, ugh. It's like a Funk army just kicking ass.)
