Tai W, Gary Thai, who left of Klus Corman. This list is just crazy. I agree , Walter Page’s omission reflects how little distance anyone is willing to go for the best and most creative bassist of Modern times (thanks Gabe) , and then there’s Pop’s Foster who invented the ‘walking’ bass line which led to Walter , boogie-woogie and rock n roll . Once again the “best of in any category” is so subjective why do people start this shit it proves nothing and what are you basing this on popularity, education, talent, creativity, or limited knowledge on your part? FLEA better than Jaco…..PLEASE. I love Roger Waters, but do not think for one minute, he belongs on this list.

And I’m disappointed that I didn’t make the list 🙁, And, of course completely forgotten, on Number 1A: Robbie Shakespeare! What about Greg Lake? “Entertainment” List not serious.

I agree!….and what about the talented (singer, songwriter) and showmanship of JoJo Garcia of Los Lonely Boys and for his ever so deep and dynamic, thudding or vibrant, you could almost count the viibrations of the strings of Mel Schachers bass….of GRAND FUNK RR! Louis Johnson at 43rd. Phil Lesh Alembic Miniature Bass Details: Condition: Brand New Item SKU: SS-AXE-PL-408 His name evades me. The Motown original Funk Brothers. Seeing a lot of those names on the list and names in the comments brought back many good memories.

Bruce Thomas is my personal fave. Same with Larry Mullin. He is the most sought after Bassist today. I liked the list though was surprised no Mike Watt or Doug Wimbish.

Top 30 Hard Rock How Tom and drummer Chester Thompson really pump thru all tricky FZ trade marks. Jack Cassidy should be there and high up, too! Jah Wobble is worth a mention also. Tina Weymouth only no.36? Anyone good enough to be in the Zombies, Argent and the Kinks knows what he’s doing in my opinion though. Just because the band was/is great doesn’t mean that the individuals are great musicians. Mel Schacher of GFR fame. C’mon! Duck Dunn near 50? Jamerson for example, influenced many of the players listed above him. Lesh was more a catapult to parts further out. No Jack Casady? Clayton had to learn on the fly. No Ian Hill? This is total bull… Not to mention Paul McCartney better than Jaco… Do you know anything about music? And he never even wanted to be the baseplayer! Tony Levin should be higher on the list , as should be Chris Squire. As usual, a popularity contest, nothing to do with who is the best, No Michael Anthony?

Bass with the Jeff Beck Group w/ Rod Stewart and then guitar with Stewart and Faces and then the Stones?? They play with their FEET while ripping it up on the organ. And, with Fleetwood Mac? ………….frankly, there are some players on this list i am just not familiar with ……….we can’t know and like everything or everybody. A list of 50 top bass players without Jack Casady is unthinkable! He was the riffmaster in Led Zeppelin, the solid grounding to Jimmy Page and Robert Plant’s wild energy, the driving force behind ‘Black Dog’ and ‘Misty Mountain Hop’, and the main reason why the Page/Plant reunions, good as they were, just weren’t Zeppelin. Chris Squire, etc, of course, was a “better” bass player. Keeping up with Rory Gallagher was not a task for the timid. #19…an insult. Again : very funny, thanks a lot !

During his solo career, did/does McCartney still play the bass guitar or did/does he play lead for his songs, I wonder? Exactly…..TIM BOGART not in the Top 5????? No Flea? Another vote for Graham Maby for inclusion. I especially loved his bass playing on BURN DOWN THE MISSION. athough NO is so obvious answer, Geezer Butler better than Charles Mingus!!! Though he was a big guy, you could barely see the Duck’s fingers move on the strings, even when he was playing with rockers like Neil Young or Eric Clapton. He is the Bassists Bassist. The Iron Maiden guy is the 7th best bass player, ever. Noel Redding, Bill Wyman, Jim Lea, Mel Shacher at least should be in (IMHO in top 20) Roll this shit carefully in tube and put in your a… back, Entwistle was phenomenal. No GPJr is absolutely awful. McCartney has a bigger musical impact, but strictly speaking, Flea is hard to top as a bassist. Where are Lee Jackson, Janick Top,Jamaaladeen Tacuma, John Greaves, Rocketry Morton?

Grateful Dead’s bassist always sounded exactly like what he was: an experimental composer who learned bass for the sake of joining a rock band. Any list is incomplete without Jon Camp from Renaissance He might be #1. Jaco should be much higher on the list. No other band puts Bass in the front. And Chris Squire only at number 16? I can’t believe you overlooked James Dewar. The Meters’ founding bassist is also the most prolific member of his circle, leading countless spinoff bands and playing on notable sessions (including David Byrne’s Uh-Oh album). Gimme a break!

What about Lee Jackson, John Greaves, Rockette Morton, Janick Top, Richard Sinclair, Bill McCormick, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Trefor Geronwy ? Sims, Mel Schachler…. I could name a dozen who belong on this list, as have others, BUT, not including Tim Bogart??? Duck Dunn is far too close to the bottom of the list. Chris Squire, Jaco pastorius, Charles Mingus, Ray brown, and James jammers should be in the top ten. I’ve gone down the entire reply list of this obviously celebrity driven list and I was perplexed to find no one mentioning the incredible Chris Hillman. he’s played on more hits than most of these other players combined ………….. Carol Kaye, Chuck Rainey, Herbie Flowers Donald Dunn James Jamerson, Pino Palladino, Tony Levin, Lee Sklar, Bernard Edwards, Will Lee, Larry Knechtel……… these were/are the studio greats that define/d an era of great music…………. Too many really good bass players not on the list. I think there music was much better than Paul’s CRAP after they broke up too. Gary Thain on ‘July Morning’ was as thundering as it gets…Glover, Sachler, and Mr. Glenn Hughes! Always overlooked in these polls Eric Avery…not mainstream so does not get a mention….but best ever dynamic driving bass player ever. Also no mention of Mick Karn (RIP) hugely talented fretless bass virtuoso who was also better than the vast majority on the list. Paul McCartney made a trademark out of the supple, lyrical bassline more than any rock player before or since, and that’s on ‘Paperback Writer’ alone. This ain’t! But ya got jazz& other styles sprinkled iin there. I believe these 5 guys should be top 25: A Lesson in the Phil Lesh Style… Several things make it difficult to describe, characterize, or analyze Grateful Dead … Along with his brother Carlton Barrett, who played drums for The Wailers, the duo were one of the tightest rhythm sections on record.
