Sorry Jo, someone doesn't think your post contributes to your post.

Listening to Mike Watt right now so I'll say him.

A customer says:
Oh, gosh no, he's one of my absolute favorites. I was just curious about what people thought was his "signature" bass performance. I think it's "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", but you've got a lot of great ones there.
