    Hi there TB followers, I'm an Italian bassist (wannabe) who likes playing guitar and singing too. I recently started a band as a singer/rhythm guitar player but I didn't feel that confident in playing overdriven guitar with my low pitch voice (hopefully deep one). I started out as a pop punk bassist/back vocalist and I would like to know if you could suggest me any bassist/singer with a deep voice, I mean a voice like Mike Ness' (Social Distortion) but who also plays bass, I don't care about musical genres! ;)

    P.S: Pardon my English skills! :crying:
  2. Peter Steele of Type O Negative.

    Sadly, Peter is dead, but he had a great, very deep voice. Check him out.

    Jerry Only was fairly deep (not Danzig deep though).

    No, John Cale and Doug Yule played bass in the Velvet Underground and neither had a particularly deep voice, though Cale's voice was rather monotone sounding, in a cool way.

    +1 on James Dewar too- one of the greatest , most soulful, most underrated blues-rock singers of all time in my book.

    Also not a bass player, but Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode rocked a baritone, and actually got more melodic with his singing as the group went on. Songs that have what I'm talking about:

    Rush, I Feel You, World in my Eyes, It's No Good

    Peter Steele obviously the go-to for deep voiced bass player...however, if you want to hear power, emotion, tone and melody at near infrasonic levels, you should really listen to Mark Lanegan.
    Not a bass player but needs to be heard.
