My uncles stepson, well really it's his daughters kid, but he raised him just the same, being that he is the Daddy as well. The kid was born with an extra finger or two on each hand and can jam pretty hard.
Mike Dirnt. He inspired me to play bass.

Also, Mark Hoppus, just because he's a cool dude.

Currently it is Jeroen Paul Thesseling (Obscura) but I've always liked Jason Wisdom(Becoming The Archetype) as well.
For how can I give the King his place of worth above all else

Scott Reeder, his stuff from Kyuss and his solo album is pretty impressive.
Plus he's a dude.

Nikki Sixx. Not the most technically proficient bassist out there, but his lyrics and songwriting in general are amazing.
There's only one song
Left in my mind
Tales of a brave man
Who lived far from here
Now the bard songs are over
And it's time to leave
No one should ask You for the name Of the one
Who tells the story
Antti Remes and Tom Angelripper
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!
The Mudvayne bassist is Ryan Martinie.
His sound is just so amazing.


They say when they finally attack, all the impostors will peel themselves. In order to tell if you have been assimilated, check for a zipper somewhere near your pelvis.

Chris Gearing. The Chris Gearing Technique is exemplary.

Les Claypool!

Also Larry Graham, he's a badass for sure

I've actually read a few articles that said Larry was the pioneer of the slap bass technique (though I'm sure there are other articles that cite other players as the pioneers). There was something in there about him playing bar gigs with his mom when he was younger and losing his ?snare? drum, so he started thumping on a bass with his thumb as an alternative.

Flea, because he once cut a hole in his thumb whilst playing slap bass.

Watch some porn while you play bass, you'll probably end up with something funky.

Officially the funniest member of the Bass Forum.
^There's a comeback there, but I'm going to pass...

Edgar Meyer. There's quite a few others in my top ten, but at present I'd give my soul to play like Edgar Meyer.

I love him so much I want to make love to him.

The implications...

I'd have to say Jon Stockman or Colin Edwin in terms of what I'd like my playing to be like (more the former in tone), but listening to Geddy Lee, Les Claypool, John Paul Jones, John Myung, etc. never gets old.

oh, and Victor Wooten is pretty rad, too.

But mostly Entwistle
I see myself as an intelligent, sensitive human, with the soul of a clown which forces me to blow it at the most important moments.

Les Claypool and Chris Wolstenholme inspire me the most, which is sort of a weird combination.

Roger Waters, nigga.

I know Waters, but who is this nigga person?

Chris Wolstenholme and Jack Bruce are my two biggies.
Quote by FatalGear41
I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Arif Mirabdolbaghi from Protest The Hero is the biggest influence on my playing currently. Big shout to Greg McPherson from InMe too.
Well, I personally like Cliff Burton Steve Harris can be an honorable mention.
