Best Bassists Ever
The Contenders: Page 13
If you haven't heard his work with kajagoogoo it's one of the best bass efforts ever especially too shy - Pepedeli
His performance on "The Raven That Refused To Sing2 is incredibly awesome.
Godfather of reggae bassists
Should be number one!
Simply the best bassist I have ever seen.
One of the Very best. He puts a lot into his playing. You can see him on YouTube from his performances with Ian Dury and the Blockheads and his current performances with Wilko Johnson.
He played excellent basslines in Ian Dury and the Blockheads and Wilko Johnson's songs
Name one of the most influential bands of the past 40yrs - Killing Joke. Why - punchy bass lines. QED
Fretless bass player. He has played for several metal bands (ex., Obscura). - Metal_Treasure
Since he was playing in a band with a piano player, he had to cover the role of bass and guitar all in one. Great riffs, great use of distortion, and great supporting bass lines
I say all The Beatles needed was Klaus, their Hamburg exi! He was brilliant as a bassit, but even brilliant still at his artwork, which he did for Revolver and Ringo Starr's Ringo Heck, he is best remembered on You're So Vain
If anything, she's the hottest looking bass player of them all.
U gotta listen to this guy!!
Yes, he is a bassist too. He plays slap bass. His solos are better than Mike Dirnt's solos. - zxm
I know he's a guitarist but he deserves to be #2 on this list. listen to his bass solos on youtube
he is amazing when he plays, he might now be in a famous band but he is really good
Just listen to any of his songs. He is the best bassist ever but doesn't get recognition cause he isn't very well known. Plain and simple, he is #1.
He's played with many great bands, and is an amazing bao player.
