John McVie with early Fleetwood Mac and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.

I'm stuck in a time warp in the late sixties British Blues Band explosion.

Someone earlier mentioned Roscoe Beck.

I also saw Robben Ford and the Blue Line in the 1990’s (I think) at the Fairfield Halls in Croydon and was impressed with Roscoe, so I shall have to include him too.

Tommy Shannon, Johnny B Gayden, Keith Ferguson all spring to mind and can all lay down a great groove and swing

Leo Lyons of 10 Years After and more recently Hundred Seventy Split deserves a mention.

Andy Fraser of Free too.

Who was it that played with Joe Bonamassa before he became a massive d1ck and needed a different guitar for every song?

He’s playing more notes than the guitarist 😂

Of course he is. . . . that's Marcus Miller.

Indeed, and totally awful in this setting!

Check on Pino Palladino on the John Mayer Trio album Try!

Absolute master class in taste full playing and making a guitar trio sound “full”.

Another great example of why Pino should go down as one of the greats!

Oh yes! I did use to listen to that album a lot at one time. Again I had completely forgotten about it. 
 

I agree that Pino should go down as one of the greats. He is so versatile and class in every genre he plays.

Carmine Rojas? He'd be on my list.

He'd be joined by Richard Cousins, Nathan East , and Colin Hodgkinson.

Another Tommy Shannon fan here :) 

Double Trouble are one of my favourite rhythm sections. Tommy and Chris’ work with Storyville is often overlooked, which is a travesty.

Bill Wyman had a great feel for Blues and often played fretless. Definitely influenced by Willie Dixon.

Are we just naming great bass players now?

I agree that Pino is an excellent player, but if we are listing blues bass players there are better choices in that genre.

Pino's great playing on BB King's Deuces Wild  is totally upstaged by Michael Doster's bass playing on BB KIng's other collaboration album, Blues Summit.

That was awesome. . . . . . . . . Especially the bass!

Actually I agree. I wouldn't call it blues but as gloriously overplayed rocking 12 bars go it was a good one. Bass and drums are tight.

Duck Dunn and Tommy Shannon as favourites. Just for playing relatively "simple" parts that just enhance the music. 

Might be controversial but surprised Jack Bruce hasn't had a mention yet...

I'll give a shout to Jimmy Dewar (Robin Trower) as a bass player with a fabulous voice as well. Also Tommy Shannon and Noel Redding.

Jimmy Dewar had one of the greatest male rock voices of all time - just my opinion . Just epic
