DemAndMore comments about Cliff Burton - Anesthesia
He is one of the few greatest bass players in the world that has a pashion for funk rock muic. A true mbass player
Flea is the best an the most epic no matter what song.

Happy Birthday, Deacy! (AUG 19th 20! @) I give him all the credit he can get. He surely deserves it. I love you DEACY!
QUEEN--->>>the greatest band in the universe, yet so unappreciated, so underrated, much like the genius of John Deacon.
Under Pressure is absolutely Phenomenal, thanks to Deacy, whose bass line is the most awesome ever! (Eat your heart out, Vanilla Ice, whoever you are, laugh out loud! One thing you are NOT, though, is the creator of this masterpiece, like you're Pretending to be! )
JOHN DEACON ROCKS!
FREDDIE - THE GOD OF ROCK!
John Deacon is one of the very best bass players to live. Under pressure and Another One Bites The Dust are two of the many great pieces of bass work John has ever played. I cast my vote to John Deacon.More comments about John Deacon - Under Pressure

Gosh, Cliff Burton Solo is not at the level of Les Claypool, just saying that Les is way better than Cliff.
Cliff was a good bass player, but I invite you to listen to some Les Claypool sick bass lines.
Hot damn anything Les Claypool plays is the best bass solo on earth fools. Even when he's playing the banjo. How on earth is Cliff Burton at the top again? These lists offend me.
Clearly one of his most of his most creative solos, lot's of slapping, bending and scales
Flea plays here two fantastic solos, one right after the other. The bassline itself is great, but I got the impression that the whole song was made only for Flea's solos. ONE SLAP AND ONE FINGER SOLO
frantic and fast, takes your breath away
i man really, its what eruption is to the guitar for bass
Come on the hardest thing the greatest bass player has ever done, and you can't be the greatest if you play slap so don't give me any of that FLEA nonscence
Matt Freeman whacks out this song and unlike many (Not all, but many) other solos on here he doesn't use effects. One of the best solos in punk rock next to Axiom, also by Matt Freeman.
He does also wing a few extra minutes a lot when playing live.
when it's live he free styles for 5 extra minutes!
This is crazy My Generation at number 23? , all you people are nuts, the greatest bass solo in rock n roll history, this is an outrage
I love queen but ABTD and Under pressure don't have bass solos! This is one of the best bass solos. Shame it is at 22.
This bass solo made me want to learn how to play bass! I am confused why such a classic song that defined a generation like this song did is so low down on the list! John Entwistle is the greatest bassist of all time and is my hero and this is also my favourite Who song.More comments about John Entwistle - My Generation
While this song may be simple, it proves that the bass can be a driving force in rock music. Deacon takes the lead on this great tune that gives bass players a reason to LIVE! ROCK ON!
no doubt a beautiful bass line
How can this not be one of the best solos ever? Number 41? John Myung is one of the most talented bass players in the world, and this solo just documents it. Using tapping, this man does freaking amazing things with his bass. One of the best solos ever, easily.
P.C. MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY BOY LEAD SINGER, OR WUSSY 80'S BALLADEER. ONCE UPON A TIME, HE WAS A KICK ASS BASSIST
the dundundun sound of the bass can be heard and its incredibly very fast
Incredible solo and incredible song... The first time I heard this song I literally feel myself like I was drunked ahahhahah
it s a song that take your head and brake it
Insane solo and Insane song this song take you and destroy you
just listen o this song and be amazed
I command you all to go listen to this song
A cover of a wonderful song composed by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ian Anderson and the rest of Jethro Tull pull this piece off beautifully.
very loud and clear bass see the live 2007 tour
Any list of "Best Bass Solos" that doesn't have John Entwistle in the top 5 loses any and all credibility. Wake up 20 somethings and get a clue.
Though the song may be ok-ok,
the bass is awesome
