Best Rock Singing Bassists

I do not have a top ten because bass players are mostly works with the guitar and it matters who the band it. If I did do a top ten it would be going by just by what music the artist is from is better. Guitar is not like that sense there are solo artists that use the guitar. There is only a few who are the greatest and it will not be long and find out why I have these few on the list. I made this list for Blue Cheer and if you read my account you can understand how Blue Cheer is so great. I only put 10 on the main list to fill up the list.

The Top Ten

1 Dickie Peterson Dickie Peterson

Dickie Peterson is the music of Blue Cheer. Blue Cheer really plays the Rocking and classic Rock way. He brought something new out with Blue Cheer. Rush follow than and so did the rest of Hard rock. If other Rock artist like The Rolling Stones, The Who, Cream and Jimi Hendrix are the best and have best players than so does Blue Cheer. Blue Cheer have the same fell as those too. Why are you few people who knows Blue Cheer underrating Blue Cheer and the band members? - BlueFuse
