Best Rock Bassists

Pete what are you doing in 36?
Bassist of Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane?
Phil takes bass so far beyond its timekeeper roll...he's another lead player, managing to be both rhythmic and melodic at the same time. At age 70, going strong with his transplanted liver, Lesh stands out even more since Jerry Garcia moved on to that great rock band in the sky. There is a reason that most of the people in the sellout Further crowds are too young to have ever seen the Grateful Dead. And the reason is Phil.V 1 Comment
Joy division's bass player. Listen to transmission on closer and tell me he should be in the top ten.
Eric is definitely a master at the bass, as well as all the other instruments he plays. Now that Shinedown has the top four (Barry Kerch on drums, Zach Myers on Guitar, piano, and backing vocals, and Brent Smith on lead vocals, for those of you who don't know). This is definitely going to be one of the best rock bands of all time. And Eric should DEFINITELY be way higher on this list. No doubt about it.
Mike starr rocks way hard!
More rocking stage prescence plus heart & soul in the music... this guy rocks harder than anyone else on this list
Mike starr was an enigmatic talented bass player. he should be way higher on this list. he's #1 to me & many others!
How is Matt Freeman not on this list. Well, he is now. Matt is amazing at playing the bass.
Former P! ATD bassist, and he was amazing! Whenever I would hear a Panic! At the Disco song, I would hear the rhythm of the bass in the back, and I really love that.
A bass player that is very versertile plays with ease, teaches with ease makes you undertstand your potential. Traveled wide and near just to teach every young and upcoming bass player.victor wooten at his young age is a bass player many people want to hear..I wish 2 be like him
His melodic bass riffs plague tools songs, acting as the main basis for their songs, his bass playing abilities are intriguing, as well as his brilliant songwriting and polyrhythmic geniousness!
How is he this low I mean he is probably one of the greatest bassist of the 90s and 2000s
