323 Leland Sklar

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!

324 Carl Radle

The greatest blues-rock bassist ever to lay the groove!

325 Larry Taylor
326 Larry Taylor

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.

327 Billy Greer

329 Pete Way

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).

330 Gary Johnson
331 Glenn Cornick

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.

332 Ryan Stasik

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

333 Rob Derhak

Just listen to some MOE! Rebubala, Timmy Tucker, Mexico? Come on

334 Michael Henderson
335 Shuu

Great bassist in Japan

336 Bob Glaub

Best work he ever did? Try Steve Perry's Street Talk, well done

337 Chuck Rainey
338 David Hungate

Dave did so well as a thinking person's sideman as well as for Toto right up to Toto 4

339 Kenny Passarelli

Listen to the late Dan Fogelberg's The Innocent Age for proof of Kenny's prowess

340 Kasim Sulton

He fueled the bass lines well for Utopia
