Anyone who thinks Flea is the bassist, stfu. He is not more than above average. I bet the ones who finding him good do not know a lot of other bands.

LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL LES CLAYPOOL OR MAYBE LES CLAYPOOL

Victor Wooten? John Myung? Billy Sheehan? Timothy B. Schmit? These guys are legendary!! \m/

Read all comments.. and was surprised not to see Jaco pastorious not mentioned more!... When I think of the bass... Jaco* tops my list..:) fireatlions* and nacho mahma did mention him....:) I also like victor wooten & stanley clarke too...:)

Listen to Primus. best bass ever

FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA FLEA OR MAYBE FLEA

Geezer Butler, Geddy Lee and Billy Sheehan.

I think that the best bassist is Brian O'Connell, from the Pakistani rock band Junoon.

James "Munky" Schaffer from Korn.

Flea from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers

FLEA!! i third the motion
plus, who else do u know with that awesome pants

Note all the different replies and that the bottom line its personal, the best out of those mentioned is JP. Bare in mind I am an old fogey ha ha. However I much prefer music to noise...

While I like Primus, that Tom Araya can sing (and scream) while playing bass, I'm inclined to go there. But Flea is pretty good, maybe Flea...

What's his name from Nirvana

krist novoselic. but everyone in nirvana is the best but dont forget victor wooten

and the guy from dead milkmen and duranduran

victor wooten and the guy from led zepp and myself

Victor Wooten, Emma Anzai (of sick puppies) or bucket head also know as Death Cube K. i would say those are the best three in my opinion. 3 different styles as well.

Victor Wooten? Billy Sheehan? No? Both amazing.

haha, or Brian Ritchie.

. He was never on my radar. Violent Femmes was too punk for my taste.

Jaco Pastorius fans?

. I really enjoyed his first (eponymous) album and listened to a lot of Weather Report (I have YouTube playing Portrait Of Tracy in the background), but I just couldn't get into most of his solo work. Don't get me wrong, it was good stuff , just hard for me to wrap my head around. . Thanks for reminding me. YouTube has some good stuff.
