Best Bassists Ever

The Contenders: Page 22XW

421Matt Sharp

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

422Adam "Nolly" Getgood

Exceptional playing and great taste in basses

423Rutger 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".

424Jeff Berlin

Really? There are 416 bassists better than Jeff Berlin? Who comes up with these lists?

425Nick Wire

A beautiful bass player and lyricist. The manics were not the same wthout him

426Dean Bernardini
427Joe Loeffler
428Mattias Norrman

Katatonia, October Tide, etc.

429Bill Black

Elvis' first bass player was a terrific double bass player. According to producer Sam Phillips, her could slap that bass like no one else as you can hear on Elvis' Sun sides. Just listen to Mystery Train, where, while playing the bass, he also, by cause of his slapping, produces a great percussion sound. The best rockabilly bass player ever.
