    good call on Ray brown and Ed Thigpen, the stuff with Early Petersen was cool , i think Petersen never quite got that feel back, anyway just recently heard a track of and Ed Thigpen album and it was absolutely beautiful i can see how he helped Petersen a lot.

    What about Eddie Gomez and Steve Gadd

    John, Paul & Ringo.

    pretty much agreeing with everyone so far and adding:

    Nathan East and anyone...
    Alan White and Chris Squire (Yes)
    Thunderfingers and Moonie (The Who)
    The guys in Tower Of Power at any given time
    Rod Morgenstien and Andy West (The Dregs)
    Liberty Devito and who cares who the bass player was (Billy Joel)
    Dee Murray and Nigel What's-his-name (Elton John)

    a real under the radar one:

    Kyle Henderson and Brian Holmes (The Producers- amazing!)
    who stole a lot from
    Sting and Stewart Copeland (The Police)

    Geez, there are so many!! That's not even a start....
