John Glasscock he was only on three Jethro Tull albums Songs from the woods, Heavy Horses and one song on Stormwatch before he died at a very young age of some kind of Heart defect on the operating table Im sure he played in other bands but I don`t know who.

But if you listen to those Tull LP`s to me it is some of the best bass playing I have ever heard

I got rid of the Zon because:

It turned out I didn't like playing a graphite neck.
It weighed a ton.
Six string is the bass I play the least.
I bought three basses with the proceeds.

He's probably one of my favorite bassists, and I think he's underrated and definitely needs to get his name out there more, but I dig Sean Malone. And lately, I've been listening to Jereon Thesseling's demos on his site. I think he'll be one to watch for in the coming years.

Sadly my favorite bassist is over rated. Flea. Wish he was under rated but with the Ass Holes you get now a days lots of people over rate lots of bassists. Kinda sucks.

Jason Scheff. I recently picked up the DVD Chicago/Earth Wind & Fire: Live at the Greek Theater. The dude is all over the place, especially on Mongonucleosis and the ride-out of I'm A Man. I shelved about 21 Chicago cassettes many years ago... I repent. (Of 21, the first VII got the most play)

Jason is a good choice for this list. He's a great singer too.

His dad isn't too bad a bass player, either. ;\)

His pops has cred. Jason's bio on MYSPACE mentions his father and grandfather, both bassists.

I'm very sorry gents, but the bass player in this video is hands down the most underappreciated bassist ever. I don't care if he never did anything again...to sit through this and to play with quite a bit of technique is to be commended:

Not underrated: just look at the list below--people are hiring him.

He's just not widely enough known IMHO.

Kelly, Urban Species, Viva Cabaret (TV series w/ Kid Creole, Marc Almond, Jools Holland), Mica Paris, Jazz Explosion (Ronnie Laws, Paulino da Costa, Keni Burke, Leon Ware), Jocelyn Brown, Heaven 17, Five Star, Aha, Matt Bianco, Womack and Womack, Mavis Staples and the Jonathan Ross House Band.

Yes. Randy should be more widely known. I spent many hours listening to Tribes, Vibes and Scribes by Incognito. Groove indeed.

Don't forget Kathy Valentine
Bass player for the GoGo's
Her awesome pick style is over the top.
She can even mute 8th notes at 80bpm.
Plus the poster of her and the band i had as a young man helped me get through some awkward times.

A couple guys that I really enjoy listening to, but I dont hear any pub about are Brian Wheat of Tesla, and Mike Starr. He is the orginal bassist for Alice in Chains. I also like Robert Trujillo, of Black Label Society and Metallica fame. Speaking of Metallice...Burton was a God, and Newsted layed it down very nicely with his contributions. Many dont know, or remember this, but Cliff Burton was NOT the original Metallica bass player....that honor goes to Ron McGovney. Never made it onto an actual Metallica album...but was the bassist on the demo that got them recognized. That was No Life `Till Leather.

Another interesting tidbit about Metallica.....when they audtioned bassists following the death of Burton, Les Claypool and Newsted were the final 2 in the process. Claypool HAS played on a Metallica tune, however. He (along with John Popper of Blues Traveler and Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney from Alice in Chains), played on Tuesday's Gone, from the Garage Inc. album.

Has anyone mentioned Fernando Saunders? He could repair any sludgy song by Lou Reed with the punchiest, coolest basslines, and on fretless, too. He was always fun to listen to.

Rickey Minor.

If there is a band on a TV show, he's probably the bassist and the musical director as well. He leads the band on American Idol, Showtime at the Apollo, VH1 Divas, Tribute to Ray Charles Special, Tribute to Quincy Jones, Tribute to Carlos Santana.

His list of credits is outstanding.

And few people know who he is.

+1 for Rickey Minor. He plays everything.

He's also the bassist/band leader for Don't Forget The Lyrics, that stupid Wayne Brady show that's become one of my guilty pleasures.

Ricky Minor is the most underrated bassist. he should have been on the cover of BP - I guess he's way to busy to be interviewed.

Well, Ricky is obviously not underrated by TV producers or producers but he's not widely enough known in the bass community.

This is my first post here and searching through it I´d thought nobody would remember the guy. But definitely Stanley Sheldon is somebody I have never seen around lately or talked about, yet impressive in a good foundation way, and with a tight accurate playing (even more considering the maple-neck fretless Fender "P" he sports on the "Comes Alive" pics, which I always wanted...) . I would also like to add to the list my fellow countryman Durban Laverde, who was bass player for Jimmy Page´s "Outrider" ... I kinda remember some kind of sponsorship from Warwick to him, and suddenly was never heard of again... kinda usual for us players closer to the back of the stage ain´t it?

Stanley Sheldon--YESS!! His playing on "Frampton Comes Alive!" was really excellent, very tight & very tasty. He was a big early inspiration for me. I still love listening to his playing on that record. I should find out what he's been doing since.

ok... now ain´t it peculiar... after reading the reply I google´d Stanley Sheldon and found out, most interestingly... a link which somehow relates him (Assuming is the VERY Stanley) to a covers band, of the music I have played (sometimes not even by choice, but by necessity... mostly latin-caribbean music for people to dance to... Most of us Venezuelan musicians have had, through the years -and I´m talking more than 20 here...- to adapt and play so much different styles in order to survive doing this, you end up learning up about everything) for a long time -not anymore, since nowadays I have an alternate job, which saves me from playing music I don´t enjoy- , and the band even has my country´s name on it!! Now.. . would it be too much of a coincidence, that one of my fave players of all time (I was only 4 when "Comes Alive" came out and I was already addicted to that album because of my cousin, and these tunes were among the first ones I loved to play since I was a kid) would be performing with a latin band with such a name? Makes me feel we had something in common, playing those same tunes -the band has a songlist on the site- and even I could give him some tips and all!!! Amazing... if it is about the same Stan... you judge.

Just love the whole Smith's sound, still sounds fresh today.

Paul Simonon from the Clash
When they showed up on the scene it was a punch in the face *BaM!* London Calling was the album which closed the door on the seventies and kicked in the eighties.

The bass player of Skunk Anansie


Cass - Richard Keith Lewis - Bass. 1/9/1960, London.

The prolific, dreadlocked force hitting the bass through all of SA's songs, Cass met Skin in a coffee bar in Ealing through "a mutual enemy". Cass has a keen interest in photography, a son, and since SA he has provided bass on tracks from Skin's solo album, Fleshwounds, and Scars with Gary Moore and Darrin Mooney.
