    Coolest looking bassist for me is Sgt. Floyd Pepper.

    If you insist on a human being, Tal Wilkenfeld!

    +1 for Bootsy.

    But c'mon... I noticed only one pic of Nikki Sixx. How can you be cooler than this? (I mean, you can only if you're Bootsy)

    Justin Chancellor looks pretty cool to me.

    Especially with his new short hair and long beard:


    Then again another of my favorite bassists Bill Laswell looked pretty cool too in the ridiculous renesence sculpture/painter outfit that seemed to be his trademark.

    Couldn't find any pictures of him in that attire on google though, apparently he changed style, still looks cool though:


    But here's a video of what I am talking about (which also happens to be one of my favorite YouTube concerts):

    Although I can agree that he plays a mean bass and is among my favorite bass players too, I must admit I always considered him somewhat goofy looking.

    I guess you don't pick how you look though, he got lucky in the talent department at least which I agree matters so much more anyway.

    This is a good one, because you can tell he's having a moment of bass zen here.

    Watched a live Toto performance yesterday on TV and my vote has t go to Lee Sklar. Great bass player straight outta Lord of the Rings; no one does Gandalf as well as Lee Sklar. Gandalf.jpg

    Also he's been mentioned a few times but Phil Lynott has to be one of the coolest cats ever with bass.
