Best Bassists Ever

The Contenders: Page 21

401 Robert Wilson

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

402 Charles Trippy
403 Brent Kutzle

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

404 Pepe Bao
405 William Murderface
406 Atishay Sinha
407 Todd '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.

409 Remi Arsenault
410 Francis Buchholz
411 D.D. Verni
412 Greg Christian Greg Christian
413 Rick James
414 Colin Smith
415 Simon Fitzpatrick

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.

416 Bill 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.

417 Paul D'Amour V 1 Comment
418 Matt Sharp

Sick riffs in "Say it ain't So" and "Only in Dreams". WEEZER

419 Adam "Nolly" Getgood

Exceptional playing and great taste in basses

420 Rutger Gunnarsson

Deserves to be way higher than this. This guy was classically trained and also was responsible for the string arrangements as well as the awesome bass-lines on many of ABBA's greatest songs. Incredible bass playing on 'Knowing Me Knowing You'. 'Dancing Queen' and 'One Of Us'. - DeeJay3

He was also known for play with much of the Abba band on Chess

Few bassists have played on records that have sold over 370 million copies: Paul McCartney, a handful of session kingpins like Carol Kaye, and--less a ''name'' but still brilliant--ABBA's Rutger Gunnarsson.
Rutger was most known for his long and close collaboration with Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and ABBA, having worked on all their albums, singles, tours, films and musicals.
Bass fans are particularly fond of his contributions to hits like "Dancing Queen", "Knowing Me Knowing You" and "Money, Money, Money".
