i've seen plenty of "the most overrated bassist ever" threads. so i decided to make one about underrated bass players.

Rex Brown-he is a fantastic bassist but never got the credit cuz he was in Pantera. I love Dimebag Darrell, but him and Phil kinda hogged the spotlight

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

my fav underrated bassist in the searchbar...hes quite good.


That guy is way overrated, he gets mentioned all the time.
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.
