I love Bootsy Collins so much I named my daughter after him. The great man himself tweeted her mum a fortnight ago on my little 'un's birthday to wish her all the best, then tweeted her mum again ten minutes later to offer her a Bootsy goody bag. What a guy.

This has gotta be the meanest slice of funk the cat's ever laid down:

I love Bootsy Collins. A few pals and I once drove from London to Brighton dressed as the Clones of Dr Funkenstein, blasting all the classics, and only got stopped once by the police. Not for fancy dress, for standing up on the A23 in a topless Citreon CV. No-one had a clue what we were doing, but we were happy.

So your daughter's called Bootsy?

Cliff Burton Metallica has some great basslines:

I've always thought Geddy Lee from Rush deserved more credit for his basslines:

This one here is fairly iconic. Incredibly simple, but that tone and the new string rattle and the beat all add up to make it a classic. Fantastic track too.

James Lavelle cream live 2 mix the whole set is beatastic. 
loveforstitch - Does he fall in love? I like a little romance in all my movies.

Rekaert - Yes, he demonstrates it with bullets, punches and sentencing.

He's Mega City 1's own Don Juan.
