    Forgot one: Johnette Napolitano.

    I really liked her on Concrete Blonde's Walking In London album, though I don't know more of her work.

    I don't think I saw Sara Lee mentioned - she's played lots of sessions w/Fripp, Talking Heads, B-52's, and others.

    I think Janis Tanaka now plays with Pink.

    How about Gaye Advert?

    Anyone remember Janice Johnson of Taste of Honey?

    Sharin Foo of Raveonettes

    Dianne Chai was a good call - met her and Randy Stodola at Mudd Club in NYC back in the day...

    Alana Rocklin, I first saw her on Studio Jams and she is also on the new Jeff Coffin CD sharing bass duties with Victor Wooten and Felix Pastorius. I dug her playing a lot!

    So that is Charlie Haden's daughter playing with Todd? Interesting....

    for someone who is spreading such hate and animosity you sure don't do your wikipedia searches very well, kim gordon is from sonic youth, kim deal plays with the pixies.

    and just because we're not all into post-punk/grunge whatever doesn't mean we're all ignorant and sexist.

    come down from your pedestal please

    Edit: whoops someone else already commented on this, now i'm the ignorant one with altitude sickness.... whoops

    I'm surprised that I haven't seen Julie Slick's name mentioned. Her work in Adrian Belew's Power Trio is a tour-de-force for any bass player - male or female.
