Title says it all. Who is your favorite punk bassist? Mine is Frank Bello.
Dee Dee Ramone
You should do a search because this topic has been done a couple times, but Matt Freeman
I know music is subjective, but I'm pretty sure Frank Bello was a thrash bassist (not quite the same thing, IMO).
For punk I've always enjoyed Fat Mike.
Well you did say best, not favorite. The guy from hot water music is pretty talented.
Mike Watt & Colin Molding
Although Anthrax would like to say they have punk roots, Frank Bello is most definitely a metal bassist, with a style straight out of the Steve Harris school of galloping.
However, their founder bass player, Dan Lilker, whilst essentially a metal bassist, certainly has a more punk feel to his playing.
To answer your question, Jay Bentley, Klaus Fluoride and the magnificent Rob Wright from NoMeansNo.
Bruce Foxton and Paul Simonon
Mike Watt, Rob Wright..
Jason black from hot water music followed by Dan from alkaline trio are my two favorites.
Dee Dee Ramone!
gabba gabba HEY!!
Dee Dee, the dude from the buzzcocks. sami yaffa . Frank Bello is good but not punk.
+1 to Jason Black
I'll add David Wm. Sims.
But as far as "best", but not "favorite" it's gotta be Mike Watt.
I just hope no one says Mike Dirnt, but I know it's gonna happen
Rob Wright of Nomeansno
And Blenin wins the thread!!!!
