    What about the Bass meisters?

    a companion thread to the guitar lists; some obvious bassists:

    John Entwhistle, Paul McCartney, James Jamerson, Jaco Pastorius, Flea, Jack Bruce, Stanley Clarke, John Paul Jones

    My picks:

    Eric Avery
    Geezer Butler
    Leigh Gorman
    Larry Graham
    Greg Lake
    Robbie Shakespeare
    Paul Simonon
    Tommy Stinton
    Mike Watt

    I dunno any names, but any of those disco/funk band bass players are kickass in my book. I learned how to play the bass by listening to disco and following along.

    6-year bassist here, seconding Larry Graham. Get down that staccato right hand control and play "If you want me to stay".... so groovy.

    Jaco's my man. Too bad he had an obvious death wish.
    Has anyone else noticed that 47 is a magic number?

    I know someone will mention Lemmy at some point - I shoulda stuck him in with the obvious names...

    I also love Joey Spampinato of NRBQ - flat wounds, short scale hollow body bass and thumb = upright sound. Those guys are such awesome musicians.
