  7. I cant tell whether this is a joke or not.

    I'd say...

    Nathan East
    Jaco
    Sting
    The guy from Led Zepplin
    The jimi hendrix experience bassist (noel reading was it? or was that the drummer :confused: )
    Flea
    John Entwistle
    Cliff Burton
    Jason Newstead

    Well, from this list?!?!? I would have to say Kris Novacelic(sp) from Nirvana. As others have said you may want to broaden your horizons if you're looking to listen to bands for their bass players. But hey if you like the bands in this list more power to ya', taste is all a matter of opinion anyway.

    Haha...are you being serious man?

    Out of those choices, I'd say Sam. :confused:
     
  11. big daddy cool:

    "The guy from Led Zeppelin" = John Paul Jones
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience bassist = Noel Redding

    :)

    Robert DeLeo of STP and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin.


    3 things any TalkBasser should know.

    #1 Fieldy is a percussionist that hasnt realized bass is not a percussion instrument.

    #3 Percussionist is really just a nice word for drummer.

    #2 You need to broaden your horizons. (That goes for everyone, but especially the guys who only list 4 mainstream bassist in their poll.)

    Peace
    Nick
