Perfect minimalist punk bass.
Jason Newsted gets a lot of crap cause people think he was too simple but he didn't get much say in writing. Also, he was more of a "Bassist" because he locked it down and made it sound huge. He was with Metallica for 15 years. One does not simply listen to sad but true without it crushing
Robert DeLeo from STP. Bassists who pay attention realize it, but his playing is criminally underrated, and he wrote a great deal of STP's songs.
Brian Ritchie from Violent Femmes
Duff McKagan from G'N'R. Everyone knows who he is, but few actually listen to his bass parts.
LeMarquis Jefferson. Ever actually listen to the bass part to TLC's "Waterfalls?"
Davey Faragher. Listen to "Get Off This" on Cracker's album "Kerosene Hat." Very Jaco-esque funk lines.
+1 for Brian Ritchie!
YES. His 1974 Ripper made some amazing things on record and live. However, recently I've heard that Kurt Cobain hated him and I'm a bit unsure what to think of Krist.
I find it a bit strange that a rumor about what a dead guy thought about his old Bassist would cause you to think anything about Novoselic, one way or the other. But that's just me and it's neither here, nor there.
As for criminally underrated players, I'd throw my vote in for Ben Sheppard of Soundgarden. Great player, with some super interesting lines.
Also, me. I'm amazing and I'm just waiting for the world to notice.
Well I can't find it, but I saw a picture of a letter Kurt never sent that said that Krist and Dave were greedy and judgemental and that they were fired. It was from 1994.
Krist is mostly your average kid teen who does stunts with his rd signature.
I’d have to agree with most of these. In fact I’d say most of the 90’s “grunge” sound was bass driven. Part of why I love playing bass so much
Deleon’s lines are awesome and drive STPs huge sound.
Jesus Christ pose. Outshined. Rusty cages. Crushing bass lines. Period
Brian Ritchie is a beast! His lines are what we all know and love about the violent femmes!
Not sure if it’s rob Trujillo playing bass in suicidal tendencies early stuff but loving that poopie lately!
That Cracker album is a classic, Faragher's whole body of work is quite impressive!
