    In light of a recent thread which mentioned how girls and women may feel unwelcome on talkbass due to some of the 'locker room talk' and threads like the ever popular "bass babes", I have decided to start this thread in honour of the many gorgeous male bassists which are out there playing their little socks off. It may seem tabcrawler-esque but I think it's time us ladies had some eye candy.
    After all, seeing threads like not this girl again and "who's the hottest girl bassist" can get a little demoralising.

    I'll start us off with my personal favourite, Twiggy :D

    Well hey, props to B.A. for thinking outside of the tiny little box designed by GQ, Cosmo, People, and the other fashion rags (not only them, but most of the rest of the mass media as well). Do you want to see Keanu's mug posted twenty times? I don't. ;)

    And yeah, guys are just as bad (about staying inside the box, I mean). All of this adds up to why the plastic surgery industry is making a fortune turning normal looking folk into lookalike Ken and Barbie dolls. :spit:

    I don't know if he's hot or not - but I think he looks pretty cool.


    Also, is it me or does Tony Levin look a little like Joe Zawinul in that picture?

    Women never notice the bass player anyway, unless they are musicians themselves. :mad:

    John Myung seems to be a favourite among female bass players.

    Why is that?

    What a babe! I thought this thread was for guys? ;)

    My vote goes to Stu Hamm. If he's not the sexiest man alive, I don't know who is.

    I implore everybody from now on in this thread (after Eric) to not say "I'm not gay". Please. Nobody cares if you are, and nobody's going to assume you are because you say you think a man is attractive. Jamerson definitely is a good-looking guy. There.
