    Yes, Bernard Edwards! I was trying hard last night to remember the name of that band, and yes, I totally agree.

    So little love for Macca?

    I'd have to add John McVie to the list, if not just for the bass line in the middle of "The Chain."

    Johnette Napolitano (Concrete Blonde)
    Meshell Ndegeocello
    Suzi Quatro
    Aimee Mann ('Til Tuesday)
    Micki Steele (The Bangles)
    Kathy Valentine (The Go-Go's)

    And I loved Janice Marie Johnson's work on "Boogie Oogie Oogie" (by A Taste Of Honey).

    I've always loved Bernard Edwards work and I love the (too short) bass solo in Rod Stewart's "Hot Legs".

    Great thread, by the way. Who knew so many men also played bass???

    Only one other mention of Victor Wooten? The guy is phenomenal!

    Stand-up bassist who can play darn near anything (and could probably do it on electric bass, too): Edgar Meyer.

    Maccaaaaaaaaaaa!

    It might be because he's played a lot of guitar since he left the Beatles?

    John Entwistle and Noel Redding, already mentioned in the thread.

    ETA: Entwistle's work on "The Real Me" is some of the most exciting bass work ever.

    Jack Casady, particularly in Hot Tuna. His subtle but sort of deeply driving work on Water Song still gives me chills whenever I listen to it.

    Stanley Clarke, on the jazz side.

    I think he mainly plays bass when he's doing concerts. He did at the concert I saw him at.

    Johnette Napolitano freaking ROCKS

    Just found out that they're reuniting for a tour this summer! If you dig kickass bass playing, haunting vocals and enjoy seeing a band absolutely throw down live in concert, this is one you don't want to miss.

    No dates listed in Canada, Peter, but they'll be in Seattle on June 24th

    List of tour dates

    I am SO there for the concert in Atlanta

    There shouldn't be any "might" about it, Missy. This is one show you won't want to miss .

    Paul McCartney (the bass line in Silly Love Songs kicks it, even though the rest of the song is cr*p)
    John Entwistle
    Mark King (Level 42)
    Dougie Hodgson (Supertramp)
    Nick Seymour (Crowded House)
    John Paul Jones

    FWIW there was a very prevalent rumour during the height of Duran Duran's popularity that John Taylor had someone playing for him in the studio, and was miming to tapes when the band played live....and that he was only hired for the band because he looked so good.

    Wheee just scored tickets to see Rush perform Moving Pictures *in its entirety* this summer! Geddy Lee remains one of the greatest bass players of all time, IMO.
