Best Bassists Ever

Come on. Surely, Jeff ranks higher than 318.
Dokken, Foreigner... He is awesomeV 1 Comment
Unsure who made this list, but check Mr. Sklar's list of who he has played with, what he has played, what type of music he CAN play. He's amazing!
The greatest blues-rock bassist ever to lay the groove!
Obviously the newbies who haven't done any history homework back any further than say 1990 won't know anything of him or the late Bob Babbitt of the Funk Brothers.
Wildman Pete Way influenced many popular bass players, both in musicianship and showmanship (he even persuaded many of us to wear some of the ugliest trousers ever made).
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.
I agree that every generation has their own "heir to the thrown" but this man needs some recognition! He is super solid. Not top ten overall but anyone that can stand between Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinninger 200 nights a year and improvise w/ them? WTFWTFWTF AMAZING. UMPHREY'S McGEE
Just listen to some MOE! Rebubala, Timmy Tucker, Mexico? Come on
Great bassist in Japan
Best work he ever did? Try Steve Perry's Street Talk, well done
Dave did so well as a thinking person's sideman as well as for Toto right up to Toto 4
Listen to the late Dan Fogelberg's The Innocent Age for proof of Kenny's prowess
He fueled the bass lines well for Utopia
