Wow, Pulling Teeth by Cliff Burton? How could you miss that and I love the bass lines in The Light That Blinds.


EDIT: I just looked at the greatest rock keyboardists and Janne Warmen (Children of Bodom) is 97th!!!!!! That totally disgusts me. I hate those lists.

AND apparently to those lists, The lead guitarist ,Phill Grosso, from As I Lay Dying is better than KIRK HAMMETTT!?!?!? These lists just piss me off more and more.

Another one bites the dust, eh?
It's fun but it's not exactly 'great'
Well at least roundabout is up high

I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.

Not my list particularly--but I was surprised and really happy that Bruce Thomas made the list of 20 best bass line creators.

I've always loved Bruce's melodic Motown like twists on the pub rock / new wave bass line. He's one of my favourite bass players, but I think Max (indie-bassist) and I are the only two people on the bass forum that ever talk about him.

Kurt Cobain always beats a lot of really great guitarists......I love Nirvana but he really wasn't too good at guitar.....

I noticed that and I'm glad he's got some recognition! I think we are the only two, it's a shame, he's a fantastic player and one of my favourites too. We should start a "Bruce Thomas deserves more recognition among bass players!" thread/group .

Okay, so out of all of Rage's 4 albums of basslines, they pick Take The Power Back?

Complexity wasn't the only criteria that they used for this list. If you take into account everything the editors did, its hard to come up with something bigger than Another One Bites the Dust. Everyone knows it. My grandma in India knows it. You think she knows Roundabout or Money? Sure they are more complex, but Another One Bites the Dust is the most famous, even if it was derived from good times.

And +1 to the Timmy C comment.

EDIT: Take a look at the list of Rock's Best Bass Guitarists. That list should cause some controversy.

These types of lists fascinate me, like those top 100 songs of a decade that VH1 or Rolling Stone are so overly fond of. I always look at those and I think--damn, did I completely sleep through the 1980s in some sort of bewildered haze?

There is so much to argue about on that list--I agree with some of the artists but not the songs in some cases. And in the case of #92, I just don't get the inclusion of Beach Boys song, even if it was from Pet Sounds. And #42 makes me laugh, because the Doors didn't have a bassist.

And Indie you start the Bruce Thomas is underrated group and I'll join up forthwith.

this makes me laugh.
where was hysteria? tommy the cat? happy birthday?
we need our own list... not basslines you should know, but 100 greatest basslines!

anyone agree?

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.
