+1 to John Paul Jones

Also, Geddy Lee is pretty good.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

Marcus Miller, for me.


You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine


When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.

Pete Wentz is nowhere close to being the best destroy_techno
I'd have to say maybe Geddy Lee
I know that Brent Riggs(JFAC) is my favorite

There are so many great bassists; Flea, Stanley Clarke, Vic Wooten
but i have to say the best is probably Marcus Miller IMO.
Although Flea is my favorite
#30
Victor Wooten or Billy Sheehan.

But in saying that I don't know much about bassists and those two are the only two that come into my head when I think of really good bassists.

Hmm....this seems like a bass thread type of posting...but.....I'll still answer.

I really have been influenced by James Jamerson. I think he is the father of the bass as it is today.

I also think Geddy Lee and Jack Bruce are really talented and have had huge impacts.

For me being the best isnt about slapping the most technically challenging and crazy solos like Wooten. If that were the qualifications then Jaco and Victor are way way up there.

Mike Watt, he's so good yet nobody knows him.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

Les Claypool!!!


Here lies the answer

Other than him
probably Bootsy, or Myung
I <3 Drugs.

The universe works on a math equation-
That never even ever really ends in the end-
Infinity spirals out creation.
