It's gotta be Jesse Keeler for me

Nick Oliveri did his best work in the '90s (Blues for the Red Sun, Cocaine Rodeo) and Troy Sanders, while amazing in every respect, doesn't do anything that I've never heard done before.

Got to say Tim Commerford from R.A.T.M

What's wrong with you people? Don't you ever get sick of telling everybody how infatuated you are with a bunch of random bassists?

Here's an idea for you:

If you don't want to talk about bassists, the bass forum probably isn't the place for you.

If you have nothing to add to a discussion, avoid the urge to post.

Briggs (BTBAM)
Commerfield (RATM)
Todd (C&C)
SX Ursa 2
G&L Tribute L-2500
Ibanez ATK700 (all but sold)

I realize it's a bass forum, but I can't be the only one who's getting sick of endless "favorite bassist" threads.

This thread does have the twist on it that its a bit more selective and concentrates on who is playing now (or at least the last 8 years).

The value of these threads for many (including myself) is that I hear about bassists that in my own musical ignorance would have never thought to check out. And for those who are just starting out on the instrument, that's invaluable.

[edit] and for the record--

Tim Commerford and Justin Chancellor make my list. There's probably others, but I haven't had enough coffee today to really get a comprehensive list together.

Ok, I'd grant you that to a degree for Commerford, but Ænima, Laterus and 10,000 Days were all recorded after 2000, and I love Chancellor's work on those albums.

Quote by Deliriumbassist
Ænima was '96

I wanted to point that out...but I feared anarkee's wrath

Me angry? ah guys, I'm always willing to be corrected IF am I wrong. Which I was.

(And you could have made a comment about early onset Alzheimer's, but didn't, so I still lurve you both)

However, I still stand by my comment about the other two albums...

Chris Wolstenholme from MUSE all the way.

He is not my favorite, but I am surprised the Flea has yet to be mentioned.

**** YEAHH!!! COmpletely agree.

I'd have to go with Stefan Fimmers. He may be one of my favorite bassists ever, along with Geezer Butler. I guess he counts, since he's been touring with Heaven and Hell after 2000. His best work was the early 70's though.
