Greatest Bass Solos


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Flea - Stone Cold Bush

This song was the reason I wanted to pick up the Bass. Listen to the Live version for an extended solo which will make you rewind over and over again!
Long Live FLEA!

62 Seela - An Aphrodisiac

very loud and clear bass see the live 2007 tour - ronluna

63 Billy Sheehan - NV43345 Billy Sheehan - NV43345 William "Billy" Sheehan is an American bassist known for his work with Talas, Steve Vai, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big, Niacin, and The Winery Dogs.

Billy is one of the greats of our time, show in respect to be on the list... but he has so much more in his cache than some, and it's better stuff!

64 John Deacon - Liar

This is a list of bass solos, not bass lines. That's why I voted for this song. The solo is short but awesome. The other John Deacon songs on here are more a part of the bass line than they are bass solos.

A nice, short, around 30 second solo in the song Liar. Kind of catchy. You can really hear it live. I really love this, and if you listen, it is near the end of the song. DEACY ROCKS

65 Jeremy Davis - Brick by Boring Brick
66 Stuart Hamm - Blue Powder
67 Joey DeMaio - Black Arrows
68 Geddy Lee - La Villa Strangiato
69 John Moyer - Perfect Insanity
70 Roger Waters - Pigs (Three Different Ones)

Another great bass work in the intro this epic song. Maybe the most technical solo played by Waters. What a shame it is so little known!

I'm pretty sure that Gilmour played this solo but still a great part of a great song.

How is this one not included? I mean that bass solo in the beginning of the song is awesome!
