Best Bassists Ever

The Contenders: Page 22

421 Matt Sharp

Sick riffs in "Say it ain't So" and "Only in Dreams". WEEZER

422 Adam "Nolly" Getgood

Exceptional playing and great taste in basses

423 Rutger Gunnarsson

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".

424 Jeff Berlin

Really? There are 416 bassists better than Jeff Berlin? Who comes up with these lists?

425 Nick Wire

426 Dean Bernardini Dean Bernardini
427 Joe Loeffler Joe Loeffler
428 Mattias Norrman

Katatonia, October Tide, etc.

429 Bill Black

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.

430 Thundercat

Underrated apparently
