What are your three favorite bassists? Mine:
1. David J.
2. Simon Gallup.
3. Nick O'Malley
1. John Paul Jones
2. Geddy Lee
3. Jack Bruce
Some of mine have already been mentioned, but there's also:
Geddy Lee, Jimmy Johnson, Robert Deleo
Paul McCartney, Jack Bruce, Felix Pappalardi.
I can only think of one - Bill Wyman. Very subtle, almost jazz-like bassist and very underrated. I think he added a slinkiness to their sound.
So many good ones hard to say
A few I always liked:
The Ox! (John Entwistle)
(honorable mention for Peter O'Hanlon of "The Strypes....the kid is fantastic)
George Porter Jr.
I love JPJ too... probably the most unsung hero of Led Zep.
Bassists that sing ?
Honorable Mention.... Chris Squire.
I detest busy, flashy bass players.
Carol Kaye (despite the Jamerson controversy)
George Porter Jr. (The Meters)
Lee Allen Zeno (Buckwheat Zydeco)
Donald "Duck" Dunn (Stax/Booker T. and the MG's)
Here's 3 that weren't on the list yet, that I like.
