The Contenders: Page 18

341 Chuck Rainey
342 David Hungate

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

343 Kenny Passarelli

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

344 Kasim Sulton

He fueled the bass lines well for Utopia

345 Tom Blankenship

Tom is the bassist for My Morning Jacket. The way him and the drummer blend together is fantastic, they give the band so a strong bass feeling. Also, My Morning Jacket is the best rock band ever, I am a senior citizen so I have heard them all and no one compares to MMJ

Best bassist in the world Just listen to him play and you will understand

346 Jimmy Bain James Stewart "Jimmy" Bain was a Scottish musician, best known for playing bass guitar in the bands Rainbow and Dio.

Dio and rainbow should speak for themselves jimmy should be ranked at least the top ten

347 Nate Mendel Nate Mendel Nathan Gregor "Nate" Mendel is an American bassist for the bands Foo Fighters, The Jealous Sound, Sunny Day Real Estate, and The Fire Theft.

He is an amazing bassist if u listen next year and aurora by foo fighters you will realise how great he is

He should be in the top 30 at least
If you want to prove me wrong you should listen to next year, gimme stitches and aurora to hear his bass playing. He's better than flea anyway

Marcy is the best Vampire bassist in the land of Ooo! Vote for her!

350 Bruce Thomas

Elvis Costello and the Attractions would never have been so tight without him. Just listen to the "Get Happy" album for unassailable evidence.

Astonishingly tight, inventive and technically superb as part of one of the finest bands of their type ever created - the Attractions. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer too. Check out 'Lipstick Vogue' or the album 'This Year's Model' to see what the fuss was about

351 Helmut Hattler

One hallmark of a great bass player is the ability to identify him/her and his/her style just by hearing them play. Hattler is one of the most unique-sounding bassists of all time.

352 Nick Beggs

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.
