  1. I want to know, who do you think is the coolest bassit. Not the best player... Just the coolest. And the one that makes bass looks like a boring instrument... The sleeping instrument. All of this, with a photo.

    For me:

    Coolest: Flea- He might not be the best. But, he is a complete showman. A craz guy.

    Boring: Stu Hamm. He plays really really well. But he is not cool. He bores me,
     
  2. Lemmy is coolest, seein him live is a treat.

    Jimmy Bain with Ronnie James Dio is quite boring. I saw him for the first time this summer. I was all Psyched. I always wanted to see DIO live.
    I was dissapointed.

    Jimmy's tone was awsome needles to say..but i couldnt get into it cause he spent the whole show just kinda staring off at the sky and not moving at all.
    Ronnie needs to get guys who move around a bit more... ;)
     
  3. Beefcake.
     
  4. One of the coolest is:
    Dirk Lance of Incubus(well,was of Incubus)
    ...thats all I can think of right now.

    Most Boring is probably...
    alot of those nu-metal/emo band bassists that you can't even hear. Anyways,they're not worth hearing anyways because it's all root note mumbo jumbo.

    I would have to say that Les Claypool fits my definition of "cool".

    Uncool? Dirk Lance. He is great, but he has Yngwie fever.


    Forgot to add a pic. Sorry.

    Coolest : Geddy Lee

    Most boring : Billy Sheehan and his endless solos that don't say "bass" that much to me

    Cheers,

  11. Lemmy is without doubt the coolest bass player who ever lived.

    Most boring? Glenn Hughes. A man I hold personally responsible for the decay of rock and roll.

  13. Seems like some of you guys didn't read the thread subject properly! It's not about what the bassists play, it's about their stage antics and the way they look!

    Its the way you use those words that makes it offensive. Respect the forums- and don't get mad for getting put in your place. It has happened to me before.
