Top 10 Female Bassists in Rock and MetalMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
She was the first female bassist to become a major rock star in the 70s.
Probably she isn't the most technical female bassist today but I thought she deserved the #1 spot because she opened the door for many female bassists.
She's also a lead singer and I like her raspy hard rock voice.
There are lists with her songs on TTT. - Metal_Treasure
Plays for The Iron Maidens, her stage name is "Steph Harris," a female version of Iron Maiden bassist/founder Steve Harris.
In 1998 and 2004, she won the Best Female Bassist award at the Rock City News Awards, and in 2003 she won the best bassist award at The All Access Music Magazine Awards.
If somebody can play the basslines of Steve Harris... - Metal_Treasure
David Bowie bassist - Metal_Treasure
Played for Prince and Jeff Beck.
She is on this list for her work with Jeff Beck, who's a rock musician (Prince is not a typical rocker) - Metal_Treasure
Aka Steve Heiress (in The Iron Maidens) and as Mellefson (in Hangar 18, a Megadeth tribute band).
So she can play the basslines of Steve Harris and David Ellefson. - Metal_Treasure
Played for Smashing Pumpkins, Hole - Metal_Treasure
White Zombie - Metal_Treasure
Crucified Barbara - Metal_Treasure
Brazilian thrash metal girl - bassist and lear singer for Nervosa - Metal_Treasure
Sonic Syndicate - Metal_Treasure
Much more important musically and historically than Suzi Quatro, though she did appear slightly later in time; her "cred" was iron clad. How could she not be the first name when this list was created?
