Best Bassists Ever
The Contenders: Page 14
He isn't the best bassist ever but he is certainly the most creative bassist on this list. He has his own sound because of how he plays the bass with only two strings with a slide to create a sound that drifts around freely and beautifully, plus Les Claypool likes him. RIP Mark
I can't believe it took so long to even get this guy on the list. - dumbasilook
RIP... A creative bassist that needs to be higher than 249.
Anybody ever hear of Morphine? Give it a listen, moody dark and mellow.
Yeah most of you might not know him, haven't diversed enough in your music knowledge but many many HIM fans will tell you this guy rocks his bass, and with his sidekick lead guitarist Mikko "Linde" Lindström AKA Daniel Lioneye Band he provides the depth and strong sound we HIM lovers have come to know. He may not be the best, but to us HE IS THE BEST BASSIST!
Please go back and learn the music and the originators. EWF is one of the best bands of all time and Verdine drove that sound with skill, soul and showmanship. Definitely top 10 in my book.
What kind of list is this when Verdine White is put as the number 288th best bassist? outrageous!
Check him out with his band ZO2 or with Trans-Siberian Orchestra! David Z. Rocks!
Bon Jovi would be a lot poorer without Alec, no lie
A clasical Bassist with the ability to change a song and make it his own, a man who takes strongly to instruction and has a good ear and eye for musical notes, a man who is morethan given in the music industry but Blessed.V 1 Comment
The greatest blues-rock bassist ever to lay the groove!
No question Glenn should be in the top 50 bassists. I would even say top 20. He had the colorful melodies Jamison of motown had. Well let's see if we can get him up the list.
Glenn Cornick is (in my opinion) the best bassist Jethro Tull has ever had. He Was there from the beginning, and got fired for no reason in 1971. If you listen to Jethro Tull's cover of Bach's Bourée, you will see what I mean from his stellar bass solo which has a regular rhythm and actual bass strumming with his hands and back to the regular rhythm again. He is awesome.
Best work he ever did? Try Steve Perry's Street Talk, well done
He fueled the bass lines well for Utopia
Why so low. Has no one listened to the albums Rainbow Rising, Holy Diver, Last in Line, Sacred Heart, Dream Evil, Magica or Killing the Dragon?! He's amazing
Dio and rainbow should speak for themselves jimmy should be ranked at least the top ten
