"Bass Player magazine is holding the ultimate bassist poll.


Recommended Posts

it's a bit worrying that they have to tell us who some of the players worked with, e.g Paul McCartney (Beatles) whereas Scott Lafaro who worked with Bill Evans  has no such addition. Does that means a lot of the Jazz players will be ignored by the voting readers or are they well known enough  by the poll readers not to need the extra info?

It’s guitarworld. Don’t expect too much.

Might not have been the best bass player but he did have one heck of an image.

Which is of course why McLaren supported getting him in the band, whereas Rotten wanted to even things up in the mates dept.

Bit of a stinky poo survey. You can't skip the questions you don't have an opinion on. How many people will choose one at random because they're not interested in best jazz fusion player and want to get on to the next question. 

I just answered Geezer Butler for every category

Oh how I hate these sort of 'best ever' polls. Music is a way of life, not a f**king competition.

 

Like sticking Playboy centrefolds or slightly risque posters of Brigitte Bardot/Farrah Fawcett/Pamela Anderson/current babe of the day on your bedroom walls, putting up 'best evah guitarist/luteist etc' polls/lists is something one maybe should've stopped doing around aged 15?
