ha reading this, you can really tell who actually plays bass and who's just a fanboy of some bands they like.

I'm surprised no one put Mr. Hillbilly Les Claypool in here yet.

I admire him because he is able to sing well and play at the same time, However, there are many bassists that can do that. Les Claypool being the prime example...


And in response to ignition...the people who posted very good bassists, not just the bassist of one or two of their favorite bands, e.g. (Mike Dirnt, Mark Hoppus, Greg) were the ones who I thought actually knew about playing bass. I realize that some of the fanboys might play bass, and it is a possibility that they are your favorite bassist for some other abstract reason. Like you like how he acts, or he's funny. But in terms of actual talent....

You could do much better.

I've only been playing for a little over a year (I play guitar and bass), and I can do almost every blink song that I can think of and sing at the same time. Primus, on the other hand...

It's been said a couple of times, but Cliff Burton really knew how to play bass.

And this guy, Robert Trujillo, the new Metallica bassist. He is by far no where near Cliff Burtons standard, but he is still good.
