For some odd reason, I don't see Newsboys as an excellent bass band. But whatever. If you want a band that is excellent depending on the bass to carry it, Tool. The Flecktones just have awesome musicians on any instrument. And surprisingly, I think Iron Maiden has some good bass.

Heya,

Victor Wooten is definately the man, but as far as sheer memorable songs, with memorable basslines... I still say Queen. Technical prowess goes to Victor Wooten though.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

I still don't understand the brilliance of this. So their bassist plays behind the lead guitar...and he plays a rhythm part...isn't that what bassists do?

I just realized how stupid I was to not mention this before! I forgot to say they play very impressive lead lines with the bass,while playing as a rhythm guitar. I just mean you don't see this alot.

I guess i'd have to see/hear it, because I really don't understand how it's any different than what i do every time i pick up the bass.

And, again, who are they? Also, they own the competition? Such as Who? Jaco? Flea? Jonesy? Geddy? Jamiroquai? Jon Deacon? Lenny? Roger? Les? Vic? Lemmy? Geezer? Trujillo? Daisley? Glover? Mingus? Bootsy? Lesh? Harris?

Exactly who do they own?

Yes, he is. He's a great bass player...

...Until you listen to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Then he becomes merely good.

John Paul Jones is pretty amazingly impressive with his stuff....my vote goes to him at the moment. Emphasis on at the moment.

Of course I'm going to vote for everything Jaco was in... pre 1985... (cocaine downfall started about there...)

Although I'm just getting into them, Primus has some great lines. I used to hate Claypool and I thought he was a pretentious jerk, but now I kind of like him.

Personally, I'm a Phil Lesh fan. He writes some pretty good stuff.
