Best Bassists Ever
The Contenders: Page 16
You should try and stay sane playing with laying down a foundation for Marino!
Yeah! Bill Wyman is better! Butler is at least in the top 10! Who made this dumb list?
Really? There are 416 bassists better than Jeff Berlin? Who comes up with these lists?
You have mistaken him for Richie. Ridiculously low rating.
A beautiful bass player and lyricist. The manics were not the same wthout him
Too bad this guy left Chevelle in 05 or whenever that was because this guy did some great stuff with Point #1, Wonder What's Next, and This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In
One of the best of all times.
The original bassist of the Sex Pistols! This guy could PLAY! - shawnwalker
Cetera, of Chicago fame, has some pretty good basslines, especially in the older stuff, like I'm a Man, In the Country, Mother, Lowdown, Dialogue, and Just You and Me.
Colin Greenwood is the bassist for Radiohead. When did Thom play bass?
He also played oboe in Radiohead
Bassist for Silverhead, Blondie, Chequered Past and more. He's worked on numerous projects throughout Michael Des Barres's career, right from the start with Silverhead, to now on Michael's most recent album The Key To The Universe. - 16_and_savaged
The fabulous bassist for Iron Butterfly is all the way down here? His bass-playing helped put the "heavy" in their sound. Also wrote the great tune "Termination". - BobG
Mikey Way is the best bassist ever! Best bass players go 2 the best Bands... If you don't get it it's My Chemical Romance.. Best Band EVER!
Woo go Mikey! Best bassist in the world for the best band in the world! Everyone vote him up for Mikey's sake he needs a confidence boost! He's got such a sexy speaking voice he should use it more often!

Mikey is definitely one of the best bass players in the world. One of my inspirations to pick up a bass actually. He should be rated higher!

If this was actually judged on ability then Freeman would be way higher up, but unfortunately he has even been outvoted by Mikey Way who's been voted up by the fan girls not because he was good but purely because he's in My Chemical Romance. Well, used to be at least, good riddance. I'm not saying that Matt is the best bassist ever but his ability to write pure gold on the bass and his work in even Operation Ivy has been severely overlooked. Also, what's this about flea having good technique? Have you seen that guy play, his ability is reasonable but damn does he have poor slap technique.
of course one of the best bassist. people just don't realize it because he plays a genre that people don't generally listen to at large. if you ever see maxwell murder live you'll know by listening to him play and the peolpes reactions. seriously, the PUNK mosh pits stopped and everyone got on each others shoulders to watch. great bassist if I ever saw one - rottoncheesedude
Freeman's work with Operation Ivy and Rancid (especially on their eponymous debut) cemented his reputation as one of the best bass guitarists (and THE best punk rock bass guitarist) of all time. Listen to Rats in the Hallway and Rejected; his lead bass lines on those songs will blow you away. Bottom line: Extremely underrated.
The fact that Mikey Way is above this guy is 100% proof that this list is just based on the bands that these bassists play in. NEVER seen Mikey Way play anything that required. Matt, on the other hand, just listen to Maxwell Murder. - AutogolazzoJrV 32 Comments
wow he is so underrated. He can lay down some slap bass, a hard rock riff, a relaxing reggae bass line, and he brings the FUNK! P-Nut can lay down any style, just like 311 can lay down any style of music. Pick up any 311 song and you'll see why
P-nut is nasty. Even if you don't like 311 you have to at least respect his skills. Maybe he shouldn't be in the top 20, but seriously, hes behind Pete Wentz who absolutely sucks at bass and pisses me off hes even in the top 100.
"Coda" gets me every time. His slap bass fill in "Come Original" is downright sick as well. "What Was I Thinking, " and "Don't Dwell" intros are dope; I could go on. Underrated.
See this dude in concert,then tell me he's not nasty!V 9 Comments
