    Best Male Bassist Living....

    My nod here goes to Peter Steele. He has an edge over Les Claypool simply because of his Versitiliy. Come on. how many people can play a standing string bass, hold it like an electric bass and make it sound that good... not many. Nodds also go to the Bassist for IN Flames, Mike Inez, Flee, Dude from Dimmu guy from KillswitchEngage and myself.
    Sigh... For once in my life i have nothing to say...

    Peter Steele? Ugh, TON sucks IMHO. I'm not real familiar with bassists but it amazes me what Geddy Lee does between playing the bass, singing and the other electronic instruments. I also like Mike Inez from his Alice in Chains days and Cliff Burton from Metallica.

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

    I'm in love with the women of Univision.

    Agreed Cliff was the best ever.. His affrontive style just attacks at you like a Randy rhodes guitar solo. He brought the Bass to the forfront of the band, instead of cruzing in the back un-noticed. The dude from Fog Hat was pretty good by the way.

    Didya ever get a chance to see Cliff live Bossk?? He was a madman on stage. Incredible is all I can say. I'm glad I got a chance to see him perform before he died.

    Les Claypool. Steve Harris a close call. i think Les was definitely influenced by Steve.

    Alas, no i was going to see him and i got the Pox...

    i did see Newstead. choke.... Lemmy is good and so is Van Stienstine or what ever his name is from the Misfits.

    The defining line of a basist is do you sit and play root notes or do you write your own and go from there and improvise. The answer is an easy one. BTW the Bassist from Mudvayne is pretty good as well.

    Long live the bassist from MAN O WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FEEL THE POWER OF MY SWORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That would be a hard one. I'm gonna say it would be a toss-up between Steve Harris, Flea, and Les Claypool.
