Best Bassists Ever
The Contenders: Page 21
Virtuoso player of bass, double bass, tuba, sousaphone and other instruments I haven't even heard of before :) I had the luck to hear some amazing solos back when in Jason Ricci and New Blood. in my humble opinion he deserves a dedicated place on this list.
This is not a big name, in fact he is knowed just for his YouTube channel and for some small band he have played... But is one of the best bassists I've ever heard. Listen his remix of Bohemian Rhapsody and Flight of the Bumblebee and you will surely love him.
As the longtime bassist for George Thorogood and the Destroyers, he hasn't gotten 1/4 of the recognition he deserves. I've been watching and listening for about 40 years his talent has grown every time I've been to see the band (which is every time I can get to the venue or city). Showmanship is very entertaining but solid, great playing is what makes the music so good.
Exceptional playing and great taste in basses
Deserves to be way higher than this. This guy was classically trained and also was responsible for the string arrangements as well as the awesome bass-lines on many of ABBA's greatest songs. Incredible bass playing on 'Knowing Me Knowing You'. 'Dancing Queen' and 'One Of Us'. - DeeJay3
He was also known for play with much of the Abba band on Chess
Few bassists have played on records that have sold over 370 million copies: Paul McCartney, a handful of session kingpins like Carol Kaye, and--less a ''name'' but still brilliant--ABBA's Rutger Gunnarsson.
Rutger was most known for his long and close collaboration with Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and ABBA, having worked on all their albums, singles, tours, films and musicals.
Bass fans are particularly fond of his contributions to hits like "Dancing Queen", "Knowing Me Knowing You" and "Money, Money, Money".
A beautiful bass player and lyricist. The manics were not the same wthout him
Katatonia, October Tide, etc.
Elvis' first bass player was a terrific double bass player. According to producer Sam Phillips, her could slap that bass like no one else as you can hear on Elvis' Sun sides. Just listen to Mystery Train, where, while playing the bass, he also, by cause of his slapping, produces a great percussion sound. The best rockabilly bass player ever.
