  • favorite bassist?

    we have discussions over favorite geetarists but what about bassists huh? okay here's my top 3:

    1. Alex Webster of cannibal corpse. even if you don't like cannibal corpse you can not deny the awsomeness that is alex webster.

    2. flea of RHCP- you can't say enough about him he's just great

    3. Ryan Martinie of mudvayne-just like a-web (heh i came up with a new nickname for him) you may not like the band overall but his basslines are spot on. and he's just amazing.

      I actually have met flea seceral times. But I would have to pick Cliff Burton (original Bassist for METALLICA) as being the BEST!!! But I really like the way Paul Deslisle carries the low end for SMASHMOUTH.
      SOMEBODY!!! ANYBODY!!!! GIVE ME A MILE HIGH SALUTE!!!!

        Krist Novoselic anyone? On top of being a good palyer, I know a kid who looks EXACTLY like him. Or at least exactly like he did back in the early early days, minus about 5 inches.

            flea is definately a great bassist, along with geezer butler from sabbath and John paul Jones of Zeppelin.

            And of course you can't forget paul mcartney, what he lacked in bass talent he made up for in influence!

                      ME

                      1. Chris Wolstenholme (Muse) - awesome bassist he's pretty much my role model. Love his heavy fingerstyle and effects-heavy bass.

                      2. Timmy Commerford (RATM/Audioslave) - another heavy fingerstyle bassist, great riffs, love that crunchy distorted tone too. Lots of style.

                      3. Carlos Dengler (Interpol) - the only pick bassist I've ever really admired...really melodic tripletty basslines. Similar style to Peter Hook, just better. Very stylish, very good bassist.

                      Honourable Mention:

                      Brian Gibson (Lightning Bolt) - Lightning Bolt. Best example of organised noise...just the drum and the bass (which is tuned up in fifths). Awesome bassist, also has a love of whammy pedals which goes down well with me Great bassist, especially with the tapping.

                        Geezer Butler will always be my favorite bassist. He was far, far ahead of his time and his Black Sabbath bass lines are great to listen to 30+ years after they were recorded.

                        Next in line would be Timi Hansen--Mercyful Fate/King Diamond (my main influence)
                        and Dee Dee Ramone--For his energy and songwriting.

                        Other favorites (in no particular order):
                        Steve DiGiorgio --Autopsy, Sadus, Iced Earth........ one of the most talented bass players ever, DiGiorgio is pretty much a "hired gun", not sticking with anyone for more than 1 album. The only band he was officially a part of (as far as I know) was his first band, Sadus.

                        Ron Royce--Coroner. Amazing Talent!!

                        Martin Ain--Celtic Frost

                        Cronos--Venom

                        Alex Webster-- I saw him play a few times in the 90's.... excellent bassist.

                        Leif Edling--Candlemass. Brilliant songwriter.

                        Les Claypool--To cool not to put on the list.
