Your favorite bassist

Recommended Posts

Les Claypool & Cliff Burton are the two names that come to mind the instant I hear the word "Bass", but I'm also kinda fond of the simplicity of Jerry Only's playing (from The Misfits).

Les Claypool goes without saying but some other greats are:

Mike Watt - Fantastic bass player of the Minutemen and fIREHOSE (name is spelled like that, so no my caps lock didn't get stuck)

Rob Wright - Fans of Les Claypool and Mike Patton's projects would like Wright's groups Nomeansno and the Hanson Brothers (and no not the teenie bopper Hanson)

Steve Soto - One of the better bass players from the Orange County punk scene in the early 1980s. Better known for his work with the Adolescents and Agent Orange.

Midget is my favorite Bassist ever!  :wub:

You are a goddess amongst women :)

For those wondering what she's referring to, I made the comment over MSN that I had just learned and played the Seinfeld theme on my bass.

My favorite lists is the standard fare: Les, Cliff, Bootsy, Flea, etc. Mike from Green Day is vastly under-rated, despite his numerous mentionings here.
