Best Bassists Ever
The Contenders: Page 22
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".
Really? There are 416 bassists better than Jeff Berlin? Who comes up with these lists?
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.
