    Best Female Bassist....

    SO who is the best? My vote goes to Rayna of Coal Chamber fame. Saw her twice and each time she just belted it out. Sean Ysaualt was pretty good. (White Zombie) but she wasnt as good as Rayna. Since i know it will come up the Bassist from Kittie really isnt too great. She was way to stoned when i saw her and she plays sloppy. I still belive Jason Newstead is a Woman so he gets honerable mention.... NOT!
    Sigh... For once in my life i have nothing to say...

    The only female bassist I could even think of was Sean Ysaualt from White Zombie. I never have cared for Coal Chamber so I can't speak for Rayna's ability.

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    I'm in love with the women of Univision.

    Not familiar with alot of female bassists, but of the ones I know of I'd say D'Arcy Wretzky.

    I liked Drain STH, so I thought Anna Kjellberg was cool.

    But I'm not an expert on female bass players.

    sean is really good, and perhaps my favorite, although jennifer arroyo from kittie is just awesome.

    but don't forget carol kaye. she's older now, but she was the very first commercial bassist. she played with such unknown bands as the beachboys you may not care for the music she plays, but she has scary good chops.

    What was the name of the woman who played bass for the Breeders? Was it Josephine Wiggs, or was it one of the Deal sisters? Whichever one it was, she was cool. The bass on their remake of "Lord of the Thighs" alone is enough to ensure her place in the Bass Players Hall of Fame.
    That's my jacket!

    It was Kim Deal, her sister Kelly plays guitar.

    Kim Deal also plays the low ends for another deadly little rock band called Pixies..... perhaps you've heard of them?

    Kim Deal is the best.

    I am certainly not qualified to judge anyone's musical ability, so I will just list a few female bassists I know of.

    D'arcy of The Smashing Pumpkins and Kim Deal of The Pixies have already been mentioned.

    Kim Gordon - Sonic Youth
    Kim Coletta - Jawbox
    Tina Weymouth - Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club
    Melissa Auf Der Maur - Hole, Smashing Pumpkins, now with a solo album
    Myra Power - Slant 6

    I'd mention someone from Sleater-Kinney, but hey have two guitars, no bass.
