Best Rock Bassists
The Contenders: Page 2
Perfect tone, perfect lines, perfect rock bassist! - adfairhurst
This guy is ahead of Cliff Burton? And Nikki Sixx? And Justin Chancellor? Is their even any bass licks or bass solos in A7X songs? Like literally, you guys just vote for him because of his band? He doesn't belong I. the same sentence as Les Claypool, let alone one spot behind him. I guess when you sell out like A7X, and become overrated, people put real talent aside and just vote with the norm and go with whatever's mainstream. No Tim Commerford? No Fieldy? No Steve Harris? Absolute joke, people who vote thus clown over Burton probably don't even know what a bass guitar is. THIS is a prime example why rock and metal are dying!
I think he is great bassists, he can playing chord and harmony
Johnny is absolutely tallented in keeping the rhythm of song good, covering guitar duet, and makes A7X song seems cool as hell. Listen Hail to the king when the bass starts, damn waww!V 2 Comments
Great player, underrated as heck.
The One of thousand!
This man created the hysteria bass line, how is he not in the top ten?
Time is running Out. Nothing more to say.
Don't know how he's not on the listV 1 Comment
Mikey is fantastic! He obviously doesn't think of himself that way, for he has no self confidence. I don't even know why, I mean he's really great, so he should know that. I love My Chemical Romance!
Should be him the best bassist ever
Listen to him on "addicted to that rush"V 1 Comment
Lemmy has truly been disgraced on this list. He's one of rock n' roll's greatest survivors, plus he did the bass line for Overkill.
I love you Reita...GazettE
Check out his early work with Van Halen, through Diver Down. He was 100% locked in with Alex, and his playing was both rhythmic and aggressive. He pretty much turned into a standard bass during the Van Hagar years, but his early playing is absolutely top notch.
Its spelt Paul grAy
Joy division's bass player. Listen to transmission on closer and tell me he should be in the top ten.
Such a nice guy and an amazing bassist. He's been behind Jon, Tico, Richie/Phil and David for more than 30 years and still with a smile. BON JOVI FOREVER!
