    You should listen to more than one or two genres.
    You're missing out on lots of great music and players.

    Roger Glover is IMO the best of the listed ones, but he's not my favourite!

    Another meaningless poll...

    Why are the majority of the bassists on this list in metal bands?

    What happened to Jaco?
    What happened to Flea?
    What happened to Les Claypool?


    Out of all the bassists, I'd single out Jason Black from Hot Water Music, and say he's my main influence... So I'd have to say I like his style best.


    If anyone wants to download a song of theirs, I suggest "Trademark."

    Probably a joke.
    Well, even if it wasn't intended as one, it's the way I'm taking it. :D


    I want to vote to see the results... Hrmm... I hate all of them, I suppose I'll have to figure out which I dislike the least...

    Perhaps I'll pick the girl from Kitty (kittie?)
    She's not very good, but in the article I read about her, she atleast said "I focused on playing, not tabs, when I started" which deserves some sort of credit, I guess...
     
  18. All those bassists are terrible! This is disgusting!
