Im pretty sure all of the names people have mentioned here have been a #1 bassist in some poll or another.

You can't beat "80's Pop" use of Bass.

Is there a difference between who writes better songs on bass, or who can play it better?

Cause I give my personal #1 spot to John Entwistle, either way! Then who ever plays bass for Taylor Swift gets #2, at least for best song writing.

However, I would argue even in 80s music there are far more remarkable bass players. I was actively playing and buying music in that era and the talent far exceed Mr. Taylor's expertise.

I give you:

Graham Maby (Joe Jackson, They Might Be Giants). Joe Jackson used to develop his songs around Graham's bass lines. Yes, they were that good.

Bruce Thomas One of the eras most underrated bass player. His bass playing took new wave, pub rock and Jamerson's style Motown licks and moved it into a whole new ball game.

Mark King He's on the list but much better than Taylor. Just listen to his work with Level 42 to realise this fact.

and that is only the first three I could come up with...if you start mining into the TuTone music craze, the list gets longer. And then there's dance music and we could be here all day.

Hell yeah, he's my personal favourite. Level 42 were fantastic, but I personally prefer his solo material (especially "Influences"). John Taylor is a good bass player, and worthy of the list, just not worthy of the top spot.

You could pretty much fill the list with players from the 80's, IMO the golden age of bass wankery

Oh just realized... I don't remember seeing the name, looked at the list a few days ago. No Jerry Peek on that list? If you need any affirmation as to why he needs to be on there, check out:


Not the biggest showcase, but shows his pocket and linear ability.
Another one which he solos in is "Cruise Missile" by the same band.
