Best Bassists Ever

With the Dead Kennedys.
He did some great basslines like Holiday in Cambodia. I Am The Owl and many more.
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.V 153 Comments
Dino Kourelis of the Lovehammers is a fantastic, hot bassist! Top Chicago rocker!
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!
This duo was sampled in over 200.000 songs. He worked with A.O. peter Tosh.
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.
How is he not on the list?!? You have to love Mickey Madden, 1994-present. Playing brilliant bass parts for Kara's Flowers and Maroon 5... Vote him up!
Ryan Cook is the best bassist in this championship, defeating mikey way and gerard way and adam young, you are the best of all, let's grab the spirit and all are for the future of you
Now Elvis and The Doors? THAT is what Jerry will be remembered for
#296?! Seriously? The bass riff for Suspicious Minds? Come on...
