    Isnt Marcus Miller more jazz and fusion kind of stuff? He said he didnt want that.

    I really dont know of bass cds that arent jazz or fusion oriented. Rancid has crazy bass lines but its not like solos and what not, well some solos.

    Rock bass players don't usually do solo CDs. I think the best you can do is Stu Hamm (fusiony rock or vice versa) or Billy Sheehan (semi-dated hair band stuff). Michael Manring's "Thonk" is pretty rockish, but that's not the way he normally sounds.

    John Paul Jones' "Zooma" album. According to his site, he is supposed to be coming out with another album soon.

    Not wanting even blues does cut out a lot of music.

    Try:
    Jonas Hellborg
    Rob Wasserman
     
  9. Don't bother looking. Most people who make solo bass albums are wankers.
     
  10. Billy Sheehan just came out with a solo album, although its more song oriented than a bass showcase. IMO his playing is far from dated and way more substantive than to be brushed off as "hair band stuff"...he has a unique style and tone and (IMO) unmatched technical prowess.

    Check out Dave Larue's 'Hub City Kid" CD. It's a very musical album, with some amazing bass playing. Definately worth a listen.

    I second Turock's suggestion.

    John Paul Jones' solo CD "Zooma" is a definite listen.

    Uh.....what? Let me get this straight. You want a solo bass album that's mostly slap, but has nothing to do with jazz, only rock? Such a thing does not exist. Do not limit yourself to just rock. Check out real slap players like Louis Johnson, Marcus Miller, and Vic Wooten and ignore those wanna be's Flea and Les Claypool and the like.

    actually i can name alot of bands that arent jazzy,there rock,and do alot of slap like:

    primus
    all of les claypools bands
    red hot chili peppers
    311
    korn
    limp bizkit
    mudvayne
    masters of doom


    all those bands have very talented bassists,dont deny it.yes i agree that slap goes very well with jazz,even better than rock.but i prefer rock over jazz.and i bet marcus miller and many other are better than rock bassists,but i just like rock with bass more than jazz with bass.

    Ahem, I think he said <b>solo</b> albums...

    Maybe Stu Hamm's King's of Sleep, it's heavier than most of his other stuff.
