Best Bassists Ever

The Contenders: Page 19

361 Klaus Flouride

With the Dead Kennedys.
He did some great basslines like Holiday in Cambodia. I Am The Owl and many more.

362 Lee Rocker
363 Mick Karn

Everybody would stand around with their jaws on the floor as Chet Atkins walked all over the fretless guitar.. Well, my friends, Mick Karn is the Chet Atkins of bass players, playing a fretless bass to perfection. To call him herein underrated would itself be underrated. Google "Artemis" by Dali's Car and be amazed. He was best known among professional musicians (the likes of Robert Fripp) as the consumate improvisational bassist. He died on January 4, 2011 at the age of 52. RIP.

The most unique bass player - it's obvious from the moment you first hear anything beginning with Japan's three classical albums, through Mick's collaborations and to his nothing-to-compare-with solo works. Many acclaimed progressive musicians admitted his brilliance. No bassist in the world can play like Mick

Coming from an out and out Rocker I shouldn't like him, But I loved Japan. Mick evolved into one of the most influential players of the eighties. Along with Steve Jansen, Mick formed probably the most unique rhythm section the late seventies and the early eighties could offer... A true artist who brought technique and talent to the fore!

Unique, melodic, to me a league of his own.

Rob Jones (Rob Master General) - is the Bassist from Missing Andy.
Two top 40 hits so far but much more to come from this band!
Debut Album generation due in stores March 2012 - and what an album it is!
Probably the best thing since Definitely Maybe!

368 Robbie Shakespeare

This duo was sampled in over 200.000 songs. He worked with A.O. peter Tosh.

369 Desmond Tolhurst

Played in Malignancy, Malignancy, Head Trauma. He composes metallic, classical, jazz, and he is sought to engineer music. He should be discovered for such diversified talent in his extreme dedication to music and his absolute talent with his bass and guitar.

370 Mickey Madden
