443 Robert Wilson

Something wrong with this list if he is not on the top of this list/ if you like the music or not

444 Charles Trippy
445 Brent Kutzle

Bassist of OneRepublic. He writes and produces songs, and plays bass guitar and cello.

446 Pepe Bao
447 Atishay Sinha
448 Todd 'Buckwheat' Edmonds

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.

453 Greg Christian Greg Christian
454 Rick James Rick James
455 Colin Smith
456 Simon Fitzpatrick

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.

457 Bill Blough

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.

458 Matt Sharp

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

459 Adam "Nolly" Getgood

Exceptional playing and great taste in basses

460 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".
