New Order and Joy Division. Peter Hook is amazing at bass.

Yes they do have great basslines, because they copied them straight from the two aforementioned bands.

best bass players

Jaco, Flea, Entwistle, and Jones were/are all great, but there are two bass players I think of right off that no one's mentioned so far. James Jamerson was just about the best funk bass player ever (better than Bootsy), and Jack Bruce of Cream was absolutely filthy. Actually, Cream itself was all around filthy. Also, Duff McKagan of Guns and Roses had some pretty sweet bass lines while G'nR was still good. Check out the bass intro on Sweet Child O' Mine (after Slash goes through that little pattern once.)

Keith Hoerig from five Iron frenzy is pretty awesome. I also like House of Heroes' Bass lines.

relating to this...

check out Extreme, particularly "cupid's dead" from the "3 sides to every story" album.

The lead (Nuno Bettencourt) and bass (Pat Badger) are playing fast tapping lead lines, in sync, one on the guitar and one on the bass. then they break into harmony speed tapping..... soooooooo awesome.... and it's all syncopated with funk drumming.....

the band has only ever had one guitar (lead, usually) and one bass, but the sound is so full you wonder how many guitars are playing.

Seriously good, seriously skillful.

I believe it...this is completely different from what the person I was responding to seemed to be saying though.

For best bass I'd give Supertones another vote. They're some of my favorites to play.

There have been some awesome bass players mentioned, but I find it interesting that noone has mention Stu Hamm, Billy Sheehan, Geezer Butler, the bass player for SRV, Stanley clarke, Michael Anthony, Marcus Miller, etc. As was mentioned earlier, the list could go on for days.

Because we're talking about basslines. Feel Good Inc. has a bassline, Classical Thump doesn't, unless you count the whole song as a bassline. lol

Chris Squire from Yes is an obvious choice. If you REALLY want to hear some of his genius, check out the live set "Keys to Ascension". Killer stuff LIVE!!

A couple no one has mentioned....
Mike Rutherford from Genesis. Before he was the lead guitar player in the eighties, he the backbone of one the the most adventurous bands in rock history. Check out tunes like "Fountain of Salmacis", "Watcher of the Skies" and "In the Cage". SICK chops!!!

Tony Levin...Plays with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson. ANYONE who can hang with Crimson has got to have some chops. I also dig the sense of melody he brings to PG's solo stuff. Check out "Secret World - Live" to get an idea of his range. For good measure he was the bass player for Mike Portnoy's side project "Liquid Tension Expirament" where he played with Portnoy. Petrucci and Rudess from Dream Theater.

And speaking of DT... John Myung is a bad, bad man!!!

Squire, Levin, rutherford, Myung...check 'em out and be amazed!!!

later
