    Favorite Bass Guitarists?

    First on my list: Geddy Lee from Rush. Next: Jack Bruce from Cream. Noel Redding from the Jimi Henrix Experience. Actor Gary Sinise also plays a mean Bass.

    Trolling dates all the way back to 397 B.C. - People began following Plato around and would make fart noises after everything he said.

    Billy Sheehan was amazing in Talas (? I think? They were around in the 80s...it's been a long time...), Mr. Big and the David Lee Roth Band.

    Steve Harris of Iron Maiden.

    Um, that's all I can of at the moment....

    Ooh, a subject close to my heart...

    I love Chris Squire of Yes. Listen to the bass line in Roundabout and tell me I'm wrong.

    John Entwistle of the Who. Truly incredible playing. Try The Real Me off of Quadrophenia to get a good idea.

    Verdine White of Earth, Wind and Fire. Listen his playing of September he pushes the band's sound.

    Peter Cetera of Chicago was an excellent bassist in the early years of the band.

    Do not laugh at me. John Taylor from Duran Duran. And I mean that quite sincerely. Funky, bad ass bassist.

    I also like Flea from the Chili Peppers. Kim Deal from the Pixies. Justin Chancellor from Tool. Jaco Pastorius. He's sort of a bass-playing god. Muzz Skillings from Living Colour. And a lot of the bassists from the funk bands of the 1970's, including the guy who played for KC and the Sunshine Band.

    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    I'm going to vote for Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam but it's almost solely based on my 20+ year crush on him. He's a pretty good bass player too I guess.

    I would add Flea, Bootsy Collins, Mike Watt (the Minutemen, fIREHOSE), and Sara Lee (from Gang of Four and the B-52s), Bernard Edwards (Chic...think the bass line from "Good Times"), many more....I love the bass

    Okay don't know his name but I love the guy from Muse's bass lines.

    My favourite bass line in a song of the moment is "Where did all the love go" by Kasabian. Kicks in half way through the instrumental section of the song.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Totally agree!! Ever seen him in concert? He just moves and groves throughout the show. He has more stamina than the other members of EWF.

    I would also add:
    John Taylor of Duran Duran
    Flea from the RHCP
    John Entwiste of The Who
    Michael Anthony of Van Halen
    Guy Berryman of Coldplay (he's just too damn good looking to ignore. LOL)
