    Alex Webster or Steve DiGiorgio?
     
  2. There''s this Chinese dude, man. He's not really Chinese, but thinks he is. He's into martial arts and voodoo. He plays the bass. I call him McNasty. I'll ask him.

    I saw Cannibal Corpse 5 days ago; probably the best show I've seen yet. After they ended their set, Alex came walking by the barrier and thanking the fans and I actually shook his hand. They may be neck-and-neck with musicianship, but Alex is on top.
     
  5. Definitely Steve DiGiorgio, though usually buried in the mix the **** he does is amazing and not what is expected for metal!

    Steve DiGiorgio.

    But part of that is that I like the bands that he's been in more than those of Alex Webster.

    I named my band Changing Weather after a Steve DiGiorgio song.

  9. Steve Di Giorgio, hands down. He effectively invented playing fretless jazz-style bass in extreme metal. Alex Webster is a goddamned machine of death, but Steve Di Giorgio will always be my metal bass idol.
