Best Bassists Ever

The Contenders: Page 20XW

381Trevor Dunn

One of the best bassists/ electric bassists/ counter/bassists I've ever listen to. Little man, big talent

382Tony Ayre

He played the bass guitar for the Northern-Irish rock band The Adventures. You should listen to "Another Silent Day" and "Always" to realize how good he was.R.I.P.

383Paul Harwood

You should try and stay sane playing with laying down a foundation for Marino!

384Paul Arntz

Who said Country artists don't have good back up musicians. Paul not only plays for Lee Greenwood but also a heavy metal band called War Within, showing his versatility as well as talent.

385Jason McCaslin
386Dave LaRue
387Jia "Pie" O'Connor
388Patrick Badger
389Niels-Henning ├śrsted Pedersen

398Tony Butler

Yeah! Bill Wyman is better! Butler is at least in the top 10! Who made this dumb list?

399Norman Watt-Roy

Simply the best bassist I have ever seen.

One of the Very best. He puts a lot into his playing. You can see him on YouTube from his performances with Ian Dury and the Blockheads and his current performances with Wilko Johnson.

He played excellent basslines in Ian Dury and the Blockheads and Wilko Johnson's songs
