    loudfunk - GREAT list guy!!! Glad to see you included Adam Nitti - got a chance to see him last week at a local MARS. He was playing with with a Jazz fusion trio - he absolutely tore-up his custom curbow 6 string. Very wooten-like, but still a monster in his own right! Anything on his "Liquid Blue" disc will put a smile biggrin. on your face!
  9. Jack Bruce, anything from Cream... But Sitting on top of the world ( Goodbye Cream ) Politician ( Cream Live 2 ) Deserted Cities of the Heart ( Live Cream 2 ) Tales of Brave Ulyssess ( Cream Live 2 ) In fact Cream Live 2 !

    Cant say much more than loudfunk did! Wowzas...

    For some more commercial (and not as killer) players:

    P-nut (311)
    Dirk Lance (Incubus)
    Rob DeLeo (STP)
    Les Claypool (Primus)
    Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers)
    The dude from Days of the New
    The dude from Faith No More (very good!)
    Rob Merril (i think) of Godsmack isnt too shabby
    The guy from Jane's Addiction (old J's A) wrote VERY catchy stuff
    Stuart Zender and Nick Fyffe of Jamiroquai
    Mike Bradford (great player, though you cant tell by the singles)
    Sam Rivers of Limp Biskit is actually quite good, IF you listen to their old stuff
    Dave Ellefson of Megadeth
    Cliff Burton and Jason Newsted of Metallica are KILLLLER! (You gotta hear their solos to see why)

    Twiggy from Manson
  15. Twiggy is a babe! (just kidding)
    I abhor Manson but,"Dope show" is actually a cool song. It reminds me of Dio and the Scorpions with the 4 to the bar feel. <p>
    My favorite solo bass artist is Marcus Miller. Expand your mind, Downcaster. Don't just listen to popular music. (Yes, Manson is popular)

    My favorite bass players have all been narrowed down to Yngwie Malmsteen. Hes basically the only reason and influence I have on bass. Oh yeah, i also like Marcus Miller..

    Edited for: Stupidity, typos,horrible spelling/grammar/punctuation, and shortened for bandwith.:cool:
