He played the bass on keyboards, and also played the lead keyboard along with it, and also took over the lead vocals when Jim was too high and collapsed halfway through the shows. At one occasion, Morrison also said "Ladies and Gentlemen, this man (pointing at him) is The Doors". Well what more does it take to get to the top 3 at least?

Maurice Gibb was a phenomenal bassist. Said he learned Paul McCartney's licks before he hit his teens. I believe it. I'm not a musician, but took 3 1/2 years of classical piano lessons as a kid and used to bang around on drums and percussion (self-taught) and was pretty good on keyboards. I tested perfect pitch, so I know talent when I hear it. Maurice was great on every instrument he played, especially bass. As far as I'm concerned, his basslines are unmatched for the type of music the Bee Gees played and fit every song perfectly, being both complex but accessible at the same time. The man was a musical genius (as an arranger and songwriter, too) and truly the heart and soul of the Bee Gees. He could have also had tremendous success as a session player on multiple instruments if he so chose, but he did not.
This is one of the best man on his jib especially in Africa. He have good fingers on his guitar.
Modern punk bassists are not underrated. They are more likely overrated. - zxm
