    Why is this in setup?

    I'd say the guy from RKL, I don't know his name but he's damn good.

    Klaus Flouride and Josh Paul are pretty good. Same with Robert Trujillo.

    S4n, how in the world did you think that this should belong in "Setup"???

    Please do a better job of placing your topics in the proper forum. You'll get a better response and I won't have to tidy up behind you.

    >the DuDe from NOFX
    His name is Fat Mike. Yeah he's cool.

    >Josh Paul & Robert Trujillo
    I'd say those 2 guys are funk players. They just played in Suicidal Tendencies.
    Does anyone know what they are doing now?

    I don't know about Josh Paul, but Trujillo has been pretty busy. Looks like he played with Ozzy for a while (and recorded with him too). I think his most recent band is Mass Mental....

    Haven't we already been through this? Like 18 times now?

    Oh well, that's not going to stop people from posting. I suppose I should throw Mike Watt out since he rarely every gets mentioned this early, but my personal favorite's Paddy from Dillinger Four.

    just to get this out of the way, mark hoppus SUCKS!!! he is a terrible bassist that can't write anything good. mike dirnt isn't very good either. i've just been getting pissed seeing those two. has no one heard anti-flag? the best punk band ever? with the best punk bassist? well, his name is #2 or something like that, if you want to hear some AWESOME punk bass, buy either "underground network," or "mobilize" by anti-flag. trust me, you'll like it.

    Jay Bentley- Bad Religion
    Matt Freeman- Rancid
    Fat Mike Burkett- NOFX
    ?-Descendants/ALL
    Paul (can't remember his last name)- The Clash
    #2- Anti-Flag
    Mike Dirnt- Greenday
    Dr.Matt Destruction- The Hives
    Jason Black (?)- Hot Water Music


    They are all great punk bassists. They all do whats needed for the music. Do you think it would fit if a punk bassist through a busy slap line in the middle of a 3 chord song. No. All of these bassists support the guitar well, while staying tight with drummer, but stay away for chugging the root note the whole song.

    I suggest you open your mind rather than assumming that all punk bassists suck. :rolleyes:

    I have to agree with supergreg here. In every genre of music you're going to find good talented musicians AND crappy ones. Just because you personally might not like the style of music doesn't mean everyone who plays it sucks ;)

    Personally I cannot stand listening to Country, but I've heard a few bassists that made me go "Wow!", so I don't lump them all in the "suck" catagory....
