I mostly agree, but bass players should have room to show off every once in a while. If guitar players are showing off, the bass player should get to show off. just not too much.
The perfect bassist is as important to the music as the guitarist
He doesn't just follow guitar patterns, you can actually hear him, and he doesn't wank the guitar.
Most classic 70's prog bassists were excellent at doing their job.
