My all time favorite should be somewhat obvious because of my name... The Gedster!


Then there is Flea!


Can't forget Marcus Miller!

Mark King is probably my favourite. A fellow by the name of Kris Rodgers deserves a mention too, anyone heard of him? Razz

Steve Bailey, Marcus Miller, Louis Johnson, Prince & Les, would be the top five.

Scott 'Barney' O'Donoghue of Little Birdy.
Phenomenal bass player with an excellent tone and feel for the music.
Has helped make Little Birdy one of my favourite bands of all time.

Hehe! I've been commercializing Ryan for quite some time on this forum. Although I like his Dig solo vid better.
So Ryan is one, Flea is another, but my all time favorite is Steve Harris.

There are others whom I consider legends, but those 3 are the top and my top influences.

Les, Flea, Victor Wooten, Kris Rodgers and Murdoc Nicalls.

Cristopher Wolstenholme doesn't impress me much, I can play all the hardest of his songs, except Assassin, but that's only because it's too fast for me, I'll get it down once I'm fast enough. Murdoc's lines aren't really hard either, but the man is made of awesome.

I grew up with listening to Motown, so Jamerson would surely be included. I've also seen Joe Satriani live who was then accompanied by Stu; who's bass playing completely blew my mind. During my teen years the price went to Mark King and Sting. When I fell in love with Jazz it was Jaco Pastorius whom I placed high upon a pedestal.

Well, there you go.

he's legend too, but then again, how is it possible to be a member of the Who at any point and not be legendary?

Unfortunately I’m pretty one sides when it comes to this “Cliff Burton , Jason Newsted , Rob Trujillo"

I do like Rob although some people don't , his obviously a very talented bass player !

Not sure on any other bass players >.< except the guy from Green day and Red hot chilli peppers like those two.

I tend to like and metal bass players that don't just follow the guitar all the time and have their own unique bass lines in songs. Just to name a few: Geezer Butler, Steve Harris, Markus Grosskopf.

Now that you mention it. I just remembered watching Marcus, Wooten and Stanley Clarke.
Stanley completely blew my mind!
I loved it especially when he did this:
(not sure if this was from one of their performances, but he did the same thing)


Seeing him play like that was like walking outside - the world is so much bigger than your room.

P.S. - If anyone is interested, here's the 3 of them playing together

I love Stanley;s sound in this one.
