Jerry Only.
I know he's not as amazing as the pure beast bass players out there, but I don't care.. I love playing along to his songs! There's nothing better.


If I were to pick a technical master, probably Billy Sheehan... His solos are amazing.

If I were to pick someone inbetween, that I like playing to, then Cliff Burton. I love pulling out an Anasthesia (or Anasthesia inspired) solo!

Shuld read "favorite bass player other than Paul McCartney"? Not only my favorite, but best ever. Inventive way back to early 1960s when electric bass didn't even appear on pop/rock recordings. Please Please Me, to wit. Fixing a Hole years later. Evidence is endless.....

Chi Cheng- Deftones

Listen to the climax in Korea, its just bass and drums, its amazing. He plays a six string bass so he's not your normal bass player.

I grew up in, and on, Motown, so this is a no-brainer.

Another vote for the greatest bass player of all time.

Gotta go with Jaco.

For acoustic bass I very much enjoy Reid Anderson from the bad plus. I saw them live and (in addition to Dave King), it's incredible to see the intricate playing they both do, it can really only be experienced live.

I think I have to go with Leland Sklar. His parts are always perfect.



And his beard ain't half bad either.

Bill Wyman. He's got some of the best bass lines in the business.

As a fellow bass player, I have to go with Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, M83, NIN, Gnarls Barkley, Macy Gray, Air...)

James Jamerson runs a very close second.

This week? Peter Hook from Joy Division and New Order. An absolute beast with a deceptively melodic composition style.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhCLalLXHP4

From one of my absolute favourite albums.
