    personally I prefer Van Morrisson's version of Wild Night.

    Sorry, missed the second page of this when Tool and 'tallica and such started being dropped in. Those certainly skew younger. Great list Ravenlord.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    You're absolutely right. Eddie was the half-decomposed animated corpse and Vic was all skeleton, natch?

    Seven Nation Army--The White Stripes

    A very simple bass line, but one that gets stuck in your head and drives the song forward.

    That's not a bass, that's a distorted guitar!

    I hate the White Stripes, but I must admit that Jack White is talented with his pedals, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    "Gotta Jibboo" or "First Tube" from Phish's Farmhouse have a nice groove to them.

    Yep. You must have been at an Iron Maiden show when the drummer almost got crushed. They used to have an Eddie-guy on stilts come out and do different things during one song. The drummer could have been Clive Burr or Nicko McBrain depending on the year and tour.

    And when speaking of Iron Maiden... Steve Harris (bass thread!). The guy could thump his Fender bass and wrote many great songs (and most Maiden songs). There weren't a lot of bass players during Maiden's prime that were in the forefront like Harris was in their tunes. A driving bass-line and many killer lead fills (that you could hear in the recordings!). Other bands in their genre (Judas Priest) didn't use the bass as a primary instrument in their music. Harris was/is a 4-string maestro. Wrathchild, Run To The Hills, The Rime of The Ancient Mariner, Hallowed Be Thy Name, etc. Thumpin' bass.

    That's some quality music. While I'm unabashed Phishead, my wife who hates Phish loves that album. For good reason, IMO.

    Other good Mike Gordon basslines: "Split Open and Melt" plus just about everything on the Rift album: "Rift," "Sparkle," "Silent in the Morning."

    "Yours is No Disgrace" by Chris Squire of Yes

    If we wanna stay local, how about a couple Cincy natives:

    Bootsy Collins (for De-Lite) - "Groove is in the Heart."

    Bob Nyswonger (The Raisins) - "Fear is Never Boring"
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    True enough, but the question was about bass lines, and that is indeed a bass line.

    Damn near any Maiden tune,pick one. Entwistle did some serious work with those 10" fingers he had also.

    I second your opinon here. Frank Zappa used to talk about how he got annoyed when flashy bass players stopped using the bass for its root function - providing bottom.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a bassline.
