Or, Bassists that if their bass skill was converted to guitar skill they'd be better then the guitarists.


John Entwhistle compared to Pete Townshend(gotta admit, non of his solos were great, if they were).

The bassist of Rancid compared to the guitarist(Maxwell Murder anyone?)

Justin Chancellor of Tool

adam jones is more creativ, imo, but justin seems to have the higher technical abilities
Paul McCartney had better guitar chops than both John Lennon and George Harrison in the early days, he also was crazy good at bass. However, that changed when the world found out that George was one of the best English slide guitar players.
Rush. Nothing bad about Alex Lifeson, but, Geddy Lee is incredible

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales

I like both the guitar playing and the bass playing. Hard choice.
The Pit. The Movie.
Old Talas, Primus.
Squier classic vibe 50's strat, modded.
Dunlop 535q

Skreddy Lunar Module

Primus for sure, although they do have a well rounded sound.

His bro's guitar slapping sounds like String fapping.

Lars K. Norberg of Spiral Architect. An insane bassist, although the guitarist is still a bit of a technical monster.
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)

Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88

Plum Team FTW!

Joy Division/New Order.

The guitarist really only used chords and really basic melodies, but the bassist always had something going on. Ol' Peter Hook
How about Black Sabbath? I do like Tony Iommi but on songs like War Pigs and Electric Funeral the bass is much more imaginative and interesting to listen to.

Justin Chancellor of Tool

Plus a million.

Also, The Clash.

And Rancid.

And Green Day.

(I just thought of punk bands with decent bassists, didn't I?)

We were learning about Funk in Case Studies the other week and Bootsy Collins came up repeatedly along with Larry Graham. Wicked awesome bassists! He is as good as he is hilariously sparkly dressed. If it has sparkles on it, Bootsy has it.

Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza. Their guitarists are good, but bassist is hilarious. It looks like he has no idea what he's doing, but actually has some of the coolest sounding bass lines out of any similar bands.
