A lot of "whos the best guitarist" polls pop up but I rarely ever see one proclaiming those who have taken on the task of learning both drums and guitar. I tried to get all the best I could think of, If i missed any just pick other.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

may I also add, that although he isn't the best bassist ever (none of them are) my favourite is Ryan Martinie... he's been just as influential, if not more so, than a few of the other high profile bassists on there.... and, he's Victor Woo-10 approved.

You can put up to 10 options you know.... I put 'other', for Marco Hietala from Nightwish and Tarot. Besides being a very talented bassist he has a lovely singing voice
#22
What the hell?
The only one worthy to be a nominee in there are:
Les Claypool
Victor Wooten

do a new one with real good bassists, not just your favourites
A good list will be:

Jaco Pastorius
Marcus Miller
Larry Graham
Victor Wooten
Les Claypool
Chris Squire
Geddy Lee
Stanley Clarke
Other

Dont just put your favourites, 'cause that makes you suck out loud!
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Geezer Butler and Billy Sheehan!!!!
Personally, I dont think you picked very good options, most of the bassist are pretty well known names, but there still are better bassist out there. Especially Geddy Lee.
IF YOU CANT BEAT UM, JOIN UM....and THEN WHEN THEY ARE ALL COZZY, BEAT THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF THEM AND TELL EVERYONE YOU DID IT RESPECTFULLY
#26
ugh, you left out SO many bassists..

and put in lots that don't deserve it.

Flea = Overrated
Slipknots Bassists = My God Why!?

try: Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clark, Chris Squire, Dave LaRue, Tony Levin, John Myung, Micheal Manring, Sting, John Patitucci, Stu Hamm, Billy Sheehan, Gary Willis, Louis Johnson..

and so many more..

Yeah well if you don't see what's so special about him trying playing bass like he does and singing at the same time, also he's one of the most influential bassists in terms of technique, he influenced, Steve Harris, Les Claypool (where do you think he got inspired to slap from), John Myung, Cliff Burton and so many more so don't tell me he's nothing special

Mike Watt is awesome

Quote by Deliriumbassist
there's no such thing as a best bassist... Jesus.... only favourites.


I disagree, while yes there is a lot of favorites in this thread there are, as with other instruments, bassists that just blow most other bassists out of the water

edit: God damn another one I forgot, Bootsy Collins

Honestly I love the Beatles, and no offense to McCartney but he's a pretty weak bass player
