Best Rock Bassists
The Contenders: Page 3
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

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!
