Re: Best Purple Bass Line


I think that the bass line on the organ solo on Rat Bat Blue is damn good.

Others: Pictures of Home, Nobody's Home, Burn, YKOM, Stormbringer.

Another bass-driven song is of course Soon Forgotten.

An honorable mention goes to the live version(s) of Paint it Black/general mayhem and improvisation, for example the ones on the last Blackmore tour. Glover steady as a rock!

Burn

YKOM is also great, simple, but very effective.

Loosen My Strings is quite possibly my favourite RG bass line. I think Roger's been playing better since Steve joined.

Did everybody forget the blistering bassline in "Fireball"?

Some of the best bass lines are on Purpendicular, especially Loosen my strings and Rosa's Cantina.

Re: Best Purple Bass Line


 Now for a few of what I consider some of Nick Simper's best basswork:

"Mandrake Root"
"Wring That Neck"
"Playground"
"Chasing Shadows"
"Why Didn't Rosemary?"
