    +1

    Btw, " (#28) One Nation Under a Groove" was played by Bernie Worrell's left hand.

    Song-Specific Personnel:

    "One Nation"
    Lead Vocals: Garry Shider, Junie Morrison, George Clinton
    Bass Synth: Bernie Worrell


    So much for research.

    Ah wonderfully ignorant youth! Here's a post from that site:

    Ummmmm...is the creator of this list retarded? Geddy Lee #7? You must be on drugs. Geddy lee destroys bassist like john entwistle in a second. That guy couldn't play his way out of a paper bag. He has the weakest bass riffs ever known to mankind. Mega nub bassist. Les Claypool and Geddy lee should be ****ing tied for first. All the bassist listed above them ****ing suck.

    That is funny...
     
  6. Pretty good list, and like Showdown, I don't agree completely with the order.

    One thing though; don't go to the comments page. The stupidity displayed in many comments are blinding!

    Lists like this are always so inane, this one even moreso than most.

    Big Yes and Rush fans I see. :rolleyes: :meh:

    I can't imagine that they are stupider than the list itself.

    That's not a terrible list.

    Maybe we can start a "Best Rock Basslines Not Played By A Bass Player" list and include "One Nation Under a Groove," which does have a well-architected line.

    imo, lists like that are more than pointless.
