447 Vanessa YT

Vanessa is the completely underestimated mastermind behind some of the most iconic basslines of Mindless Self Indulgence. Although I love Lyn-z to bits, it's a shame the Vanessa had to leave to become an astronaut, as she was such a big, creative personality who's talent for the instrument was undeniable. - mallgothica

460 Benjamin Orr Benjamin Orr Benjamin Orzechowski, known as Benjamin Orr, was an American musician best known as a singer, bassist and co-founder of the rock band the Cars.

The man had a golden voice and could play multiple instruments. It wasn't his talent that impresses me most though. It was his genuine appreciation of fans and humbleness.

Not high enough on the list. Great voice, great bass all without the " I'm all that" attitude. Rare in this biz. Miss you Ben!

RIP, Ben Orr. You served The Cars well with your fluid method of what a bass should sound like

Deserves more recognition, great voice as well as bassist.
