GUEST,Riverman Opinions of Bass Players. (71* d) RE: Opinions of Bass Players. 16 Mar 07

OK, I'm a bass player and I'd have to give honourable mentions to

Macca (Listen to 'Rain' [although much of that sound has to do with the tape being slowed down]);
Victor Wooton for sure;
Les Claypool (done some downhome stuff with Tom Waits as well as his Primus bass fireworks);
Jaco is the man;
Carole Kaye, winner of best CV.
Danny Thompson without question
Edgar Meyer, really really amazing double bass player of Jerry Douglas fame.

And some unsung sessioney type people...

Alan Thomson (John Martyn, Then Came the Wheel)
Michael Brook (great guitarist, great bass player. So smooth)
