      Very cool. I got to see Alex Webster twice in the 90's..... definitely one of my favorite bassists.


      Two that no one mentions anymore (though I have no idea why.....)

      Ron Royce :

      I saw Royce and CORONER on the "No More Color" 1989 tour. I had a nice, unobstructed view of him for the vast majority of the show. He is definitely an elite bassist.

      Steve DiGiorgio:

      Steve started out with SADUS, but ended up working with tons of bands, including DEATH, TESTAMENT and ICED EARTH. His best work was on AUTOPSY's debut album "Severed Survival".


      Nice to see 3 great bass players not using picks

          If we're talking about bassists you have to talk about Les Claypool (my fav.). He's the best bassist today IMO.

          Primus in general is just one of the most talented bands ever with ler, herb, and claypool.

          my favorite song (not just because it has my name it )


          jerry was a race car driver

          first song by primus i heard and i was instantly hooked. one of the greatest bass lines ever.


          Alex Webster and les are the 2 guys that got me to want to play bass. Now i'm saving up money to buy a bass.
          the space that is mine



          We miss 'ya brother dime. We know your up there jamming with Cliff and Chuck. Stay metal :salute: :rockon:

              Keep in mind that it's all subjective. Billy Sheehan and Wooten are amazing, but so are DiGiorgio, etc. Speaking as a bassist, Ron Royce ranks right up there, too. Yes....Claypool is certainly a bad-a##.

              Is it solos?? Songwriting?? Most influential?? It could be any number of things. Some of the best soloists are weak songwriters and vice versa.

              Just like the start of this thread.... Tony Iommi is on the list....cool, but "War Pigs" was his best solo?? Not even close, IMO. Iommi's forte was songwriting, not soloing. Who in the hell is a better songwriter than Iommi?? I'd also love to see the results of other right-handed guitarists being forced to play left-handed as the result of losing parts of several fingers. It would tend to cramp one's style, wouldn't it??


              Back to bass players.... I can name my favorites.... I can name my main influences.... but I can't accurately name the best.... there are too many factors to consider.

              Something else to consider: any guitarist not named Yngwie is virtually guaranteed to name someone other than himself as the best guitarist.

                  Cooley very well might be, although he's not nearly as melodic as players like Gilbert, Friedman, Becker, etc.

                  My top 5 favorite shredders are

                  1) Paul Gilbert - I love his stuff with Racer X and although not the fastest shredder, arguably has the cleanest, most precise chops of anyone.

                  2) Jason Becker - Master of the sweep-picked arpeggio. Perpetual Burn and both Cacophony albums are great for melodic yet technical guitar brilliance.

                  3) Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising Force pretty much launched the shred genre, especially the neo-classical type of shred guitaring. Still, a lot of his stuff sounds the same, both the songs and licks he plays.

                  4) Buckethead - Definitely the guy with the weirdest style, he combines funk-style guitar with jazz and shred and needless to say, is a very strange person (he always wears a KFC bucket on his head and doesn't go by his real name).

                  5) Michael Angelo Batio - Has one good song (No Boundaries) and gets tiresome to listen to after a while. But, among the fastest of all time and he can play two guitars at the same time.

                      This thread should be above the boring rap/hip hop thread.
