Hey guys, I will list a few who IMO (which is probably biased) were/are great 'grunge' bass players. Feel free to post comments and additions on players you like. Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam) Kris Novaselic (Nirvana) Matt Lukin (Mudhoney) Ben Shepard (Soundgarden) All make good claims. Novaselic for his detuning, low action and now classic lines. Lukin's on stage antics, and killer slides. The only somewhat 'bad' thing I remember hearing about Jeff Ament was when he was in a band called Green River, with Mark and Steve (Mudhoney) that mark wanted to give backstage passes to his mates, but jeff gave them all to record label guys, who mostly didnt turn up.
