For bass it's Billy Sheehan...saw him at a bass clinic last yr and he was just mindblowing, also a real down to earth guy too.

Drums-hmmm that's tough but since i just saw the Zeppelin's "The Song Remains The Same" again for the millionth time on VH! classic it's Bonham-who else?

I looked at 8 pages of everyone's favorite bass player /drummer combo's and not 1 person even acknowledged the most amazing sounds of Phil Lesh along with Bill Kreutzman and Micky Hart who made up the original jam band The Grateful Dead.

Bill would hold down the rhythmic drumming while Mickey added overtures of varrying percussions that blended perfectly without ever stepping on each other..quite an amazing thing to witness.

Phil's classical background takes the bass back to where it truely belongs.. Originally an orchestrial rhythm instrument, he played more off Jerry Garcia and challenged his leads with a rhythm/lead sandwiched between him and 2 drummers.

Music bent in mid song with every conceivable genre being used...What appeared to be or started out as a country beat flowed effortlessly and smoothly into jazz, or a hard rock tune became raegae/blues or a combination of the above in what seemed like a magic moment..
To be more precise... The only band ever to play true fusion music as the music fused while you watched and listened.

Phil Lesh.. Saw him last May and let me tell you something... He had more energy and life at age 69 (now 70) than 95 % of anyone i've ever seen.

Nick Menza and David Ellefson of Megadeth..for me they we're what a true metal bassist drummer combo should be, Ellefsons gnarly tone and solid groove, was perfect over Menza's ultra tight drums on countdown to extinction and youthanasia, two of the best metal albums ever made IMO.

and although some say I suck
I can write a song


from you to me for God to see what one man wants above the shunts
to end all war and kill the whore
increase the wealth
improve our health
raise the dead
lift your head
call all out
and make
men shout

satan is evil but he was my friend
roger waters died
susan cried
david filled
please rebuild

I can play the bass pretty well
but it's noting without an unruin

look into the heart of my song
and feel the peace that's coming


still looking for help? :oops: I am too!

So many awesome bassists and drummers from so many artists from the 60s, 70s, 80s and on up to now. Really tough not to list off dozens and dozens. Nevertheless, the few that first come to mind for bass are James Jamerson, Paul McCartney, Geddy Lee, Bernard Edwards and John Taylor. Drums; Aynsley Dunbar, Steve Smith, Tony Thompson, Dennis Chambers and I'm going to say it, Karen Carpenter. She didn't get much spotlight on her drumming, but Karen was over the top good.
