Troy,Isn't james Jamerson considered the greatest? Hardly unsung.
Mani (Stone Roses and Primal Scream). Peter Hook (New Order)
I'm with Dr Wu when it comes to Mani of the Roses. Saw them at MSG a few weeks ago and he was brilliant.And maybe he's not unsung, more like overshadowed, Adam Clayton of U2. And he's got a great quote: "Anyone who can count to 4 can play bass in U2"
Skip Battin (Byrds), Tina Weymouth, Jack Casady (edging out of the unsung)
Pete Quaife.Captain Al
Joey Spampinato.And over on a different planet, Mick Karn.
Graham Maby should be at #1 of "unsung"
Pete Quaife is a good pick. He contributed a lot.Boris Gardener played some of the best bass parts in Reggae.
Hello all...no, please remain seated,If you play bass, being "unsung" kinda comes with the territory. (No offense to my 4 string bruvvahs).Hey...what's the punchline of that joke...."Bad thing happens when the drumming stops...."?Regards,RichD
Overend Watts - Mott The Hoople powerhouse!!
Kelley LooneyFlabba HoltDavid Hoodlots more where those came from
Can't argue with the order Sal. I'd add Andrew Bodnar as well. Someone more obscure and not making rekkids these days is Chris Layhe of the Icicle Works. Live he was incredible.
Mick Karn! Definitely.
Saw Mike Mills last night with The Baseball Project and he was amazing. Today I went back to listen to REM and he was always strong.
That dude who played on Kanye's record last summer...
May I add Simon Gallup (The Cure) and Tom Hamilton (Aerosmith) to the discussion?
Klaus Voormann. Can I nominate myself?
Nick LoweBruce Thomas from the Attractions
#5 Bob Mosley
Bruce Thomas is not on this list yet?
Growing up a Beatles fan didn't leave too much room for other bass players. Once I started playing bass, I loved listening to Mel Schacher and Dusty Hill. Being a bass player in a power trio ain't the easiest, but these two filled the space admirably. Maybe not the most sophisticated, or coolest of players, but they were/are my unsung heroes!
My fave is John mcvie always interesting and melodic wonder my 3 faves are Brits, mcvie Macca and the Ox
I'm smelling an upcoming Weekend Mix
Mike Gordon & Scott McCaughey.TP
David Hayes..a beautiful player just ask Van
Dennis Dunaway and Geezer Butler of the original Alice Cooper band and Sabbath, respectively.C in California
Norman Watt-Roy and Rick Kemp for two completely different reasons
Graham Maby is the man, and this list should include Lee Rocker!!
