    His clinic was incredible! You don't notice how good he sounds until you here him in a live situation :smug:

    Changes all the time.
    As of late though I've become re-enthralled with Ryan Martinie's work in Mudvayne. I wish I could find some live performance video's that feature more then a few brief passing glimpses of him playing.

    Ryan Martinie and John Myung are the ****!!!:bassist:
  11. Always been partial to Sam Rivers, Robert Trujillo, and eViL j myself.

  12. My 3 favorites and probably biggest influences are Paul McCartney, Adam Clayton, and Howie Epstein. Phil Lynott, Mike Mesaros, Gene Simmons, and Kim Deal not far behind.

    Dubai, UAE
    Justin Chancellor (Tool)
    Drew Roulette (dredg)
    Arif Miradolbaghi (Protest The Hero)
    Stu Hamm
    Billy Sheehan

    The last two are exceptional of course, but I find the first three so appealing, especially Justin and Drew with their simple yet effective basslines. Its bands like that that you really notice how the bassist and guitarist create a beautiful harmony, instead of a competition.

    Er Hi btw :), my names Dayaan, I'm 21 and live in Dubai. Yep this is my first post.

    Pleased to meet you all :).

  17. +1 In addition to be THE greatest bass-player....he was also a gifted songwriter!!!!!!

    what's funny about that is girls that listen to that fall out boy crap idolize him, take up bass, buy his terribly crappy squier sig, and go and play root notes.

    (I didn't say emo because emos are cooler than Pete Wentz and his Fall Out Boy freaks)
  19. Tim Commerford, Traa Daniels, and Steve Harris. They each rock a different pair of my socks.
