    Robertino Pagliari (Ohm: )
    Les Claypool (Primus)
    David Ellefson (Megadeth)

    Favorite bassists besides Steve? There really aren't too many in the metal section I like but:

    Electric Bass:

    -Jaco Pastorius (Definitely the most arrogant ever; you know he used to introduce himself to other bassists this way, "Hi I'm Jaco P, the best best bass player ever"; how do you take that seriously?)
    -Tony Benjamins (of the mighty Forced Entry). Tony also wrote most of the songs I think, so double props.
    -John Emery (Anacrusis was interesting...)
    -Chris Squire
    -Flea

    Upright Bassists:

    ...Too many and they're either dead or not recorded

    The above was all from a Drummer's prospective (even though I've also played bass for years and still do from time to time). It's all about the rhythm section.

    i really dig:

    cliff burton
    sean malone
    geezer butler
    martin mendez

    since i'm no drummer, i'm more into bassists that really stand out against the guitars.

    Props to whoever said Coroner was "immensly underrated". You should've seen the '89 U.S. tour and how many people showed up for each show, West Coast at least. Pathetic...but good music not being appreciated has more often been the rule not the exception.

    Hey, ALRIGHT! That was me. I love them. Beyond words.

    If I was more than 2 years old in '89, you bet I would been down like a clown. But I was still a toddler, oh well.

    I'm still trying to learn Royce's licks- there's a great bass tab of Masked Jackal on www.designvortex.com/coroner , which is a GREAT fan page and forum. I also transposed a guitar tab I found for "Die By My Hand" which is actually a pretty easy song, at least when compared to just about anything on Punishment for Decadence.

    Also, even if i just heard 1 album with this bass player, i was really impressed by Lars K. Norberg's work on the 1st spiral architect album! :headbang:

    Does anyone know this band? I think they're great!!

    Yeah, I forgot which album I have, I think it has the song "Spinning." I didn't like it very much at all - if you ask me pretty much mindless wankery. It seemed like they were trying to push the boundaries of music, sorta fusionish, but I thought it was a failure.

    And as for Jaco, he had every right to introduce himself as the best ever.

    I like a lot of what people already mentioned: Superhippy, Steve Harris, Sean Malone, Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Ron Carter, Roger Patterson, Cliff Burton, Jaco, and Thomas Miller from Symphony X.

    Doug Keyser!

    Didn't see him being mentioned here yet, but I may have tried to read the list too quickly. To me, and with all due respect to other greats like SDG, the late Roger Patterson, Ronny Broder and many others, Doug is rather clearly no.1. I'm turning a rather blueish purple by now, holding me breath for Mathematics to be recorded and released, but I'll continue to do so until it's out or I'm dead. WatchTower :worship:
