For me growing up in the 80's having to play synth bass in all keyboard bands(ala Human League & Depeche Mode) without a doubt the keyboard/synth player that influenced my sound the most was David Frank from the System. David Frank wrote the coolest and most complicated synth bass line's ever. And his synth orchestrations were tight. I remember buying and studying everything he did. It was actually a blast when years later i got work with Mic Murphy(the lead singer from the System). David Frank made being a keyboard/synth player cool.thumbsup Who is yours?
