I love him, a good kind hearted man with so much talent and beauty.

This man could sing the phone book and make you believe it had incredible impact... He was the perfect vehicle for Ric Ocasek's lyrics. He could be sexy, snarky, or crooning while leading you along with his melodic bass lines. We love you and miss you, Benjamin! #BenjaminOrr #neverenough

The Contenders

11 Bassbaba Sumon (Aurthohin) Bassbaba Sumon (Aurthohin)

His vocal is quite good. He could've been a metal vocalist too. But for his illness he had to sing in soft vocals. But as for his bass skills. He is amazing. He turned his bass guitar into electric guitar. Almost in every song he plays bass solos. Slap and finger picking both. Sometimes some tapping solos too. Still he plays metal but can't sing in metal voice. - zxm
