Best Bassists Ever

The Contenders: Page 21XW

401Norman 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

402Colin Edwin

Only because people don't know him he's here.
Awesome bassit better than such a lot in this list.

403Robert Wilson

Something wrong with this list if he is not on the top of this list/ if you like the music or not

404Charles Trippy
405Brent Kutzle

Bassist of OneRepublic. He writes and produces songs, and plays bass guitar and cello.

406Pepe Bao
407William Murderface
408Atishay Sinha
409Todd 'Buckwheat' Edmonds

Virtuoso player of bass, double bass, tuba, sousaphone and other instruments I haven't even heard of before :) I had the luck to hear some amazing solos back when in Jason Ricci and New Blood. in my humble opinion he deserves a dedicated place on this list.

This is not a big name, in fact he is knowed just for his YouTube channel and for some small band he have played... But is one of the best bassists I've ever heard. Listen his remix of Bohemian Rhapsody and Flight of the Bumblebee and you will surely love him.

419Bill Blough

As the longtime bassist for George Thorogood and the Destroyers, he hasn't gotten 1/4 of the recognition he deserves. I've been watching and listening for about 40 years his talent has grown every time I've been to see the band (which is every time I can get to the venue or city). Showmanship is very entertaining but solid, great playing is what makes the music so good.
