    Maybe I just missed it but it seems that no one has mentioned one of my favorites yet! Patricia Day from the HorrorPops.

    Saw the Adrian Belew Power Trio again last night and Julie Slick is just a great player. The band really has a lot of synergy and has a lot in common with the last 70's lineup of King Crimson.

    Lots of good female bassists, but.....Tina Weymouth and Carol Kaye are two of the best, regardless of gender!

    Sandy Horne of the '80s band from my neck of the woods, The Spoons. They still play out once in a while.

    These threads are really entertaining. Lots to look at AND a whole bunch of bands many people have never heard of start popping up because they have a female bassist. :D

    Google is getting blasted by the search phrase "female bass player". :p

    Now I finally know why so many basses have that upper curve before the bout ... they're built to be boob-rests! :D
    Brilliant! ;)
