Aren't they a silly bunch of poeple!
I convince you to come back and you post THIS!!
Ok! Lets make this a bass player appreciation thread!
My all time favourite bass players...
Eddie Jackson (what WOULD he do?)
So who are some of your favourite bass players?!
The one, the only
Also what would be a bass player list without this man
+++++10 Mr Demaio. There's not enough of these fuckers around though.
Stefan Lessard (Dave Matthews Band)
I have nothing to add ...you got all mine especially Grezzer and Michael Anthony
Oh hell yes. Edbass is my boy.
Other bass players I love that haven't yet been mentioned are this guy:
Mr Nikki Sixx
haha my favourites have been mentioned, mostly harris.
but i feel these dudes are pretty mighty too.
jay from bad religion, being one of the guys who first got me interested in playing the ugly stick.
Others that have yet been mentioned...
Melvins Gibs (rollins band)
I CBF finding a pic, but this will do:
My favs have been said, though a little surprised Billy Shehan wasn't mentioned earlier.
Best advice I've heard from anyone is him "It's not what you play, it's what you don't play" My musicianshipness (yes, I made that up) improved by 500.7% when that comment eventually sunk in.
I wish more musicians understood that.
Here are a few more -
Joey Vera (Armored Saint, OSI, Fates Warning, Anthrax)
How could anyone forget this guy?
Guy: [Unimpressed] Hmph, sounds like she's hitting a baby with a cat.
Lisa: You have to listen to the notes she's NOT playing.
Guy: [Still unimpressed] Pssh, I can do that at home.
-- Lisa at the Jazz Hole, "Lisa the Simpson"
It's simple but the opening bassline of No More Tears kicks my ass every time.
Some worthy additions in my opinion:
OMG How could I forget.
