One of the most soulful musicians to ever live. Changed the way people played the bass and played on countless motown hits.

    dude is definitely one of the most influential bassists of all time, to think that he played all those classics with one finger is amazing i struggle with getting the same delivery and timing with two! never be another one, if you get a chance check out "in the shadows of motown" it's a great movie about the funk brothers and them never getting the recognition they deserved even though they've played on more #1 hits than ANYBODY
