Playing bass while singing is so difficult – that unless you've done it – you just don't know. And again Paul's bass line and vocal lines incredible complex at times.

Who else comes close to doing that?

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Jack Bruce.

He may not surpass Sir Paul, but he's at least in the team photo.

I agree, robert. Playing any instrument while singing can be difficult. Heck, I have a hard enough time air-guitaring while singing.

 

Edit: I almost forgot to include Geddy Lee in that team photo! 

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

*Phone Rings*
Sun King: Hello.
Paul Simonon: Hey.
S: Who's this?
P: Paul Simonon of the Clash
S: Oh My. This is an honour. By the way, I love the Guns Of Brixton.
P: Thanks. I'm calling to get Zig to include me in the team picture for the bassists. Can you get me in?
S: Sure. Anything else?
P: Nope. Thanks!!

Edit: Get him in Zig.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
