I really like Jim Creeggan's work on Gordon (Barenaked Ladies)

I really love his tone on the entire album, and the playing isn't really far from the norm, but it's interesting.
"I Love You" is for sure a highlight. One of my favourite tones from the album, and it's full of small little riffs that catch the ear.

Also Charles Mingus.
Great, great, great work and hardly anybody I know knows him. Lots have heard the name, but very few outside of music students have heard his stuff.

Matt Freeman from Rancid isone of my favorites. Check out the song Maxwell Murder for a good example.

Fat Mike from NOFX is also really good.

And I don't know his name, but the bass player from Streetlight Manifesto.

Perhaps outside of folks like us He is unknown. Outside of the musicians community since he was not the frontman, featured soloist or part of a touring supergroup. Just a studio musician who the general public didn't know so I guess underated by them.
Very true. Not many people have heard of The Funk Brothers, though many more have heard their music but don't know they have. What about the guy who had to follow him after his death, Bob Babbitt? Even more underrated...

Ot quite the right history, he was the second chair bass for Motown in Detroit but when they moved to LA Motown started using local LA studio pros like the Crusaders sax man Wilton Felder laying down the bass line for Jermaine Jackson to follow in concert.

It's Norm Stockton and he plays an MTD.

Two old school guys that were great players Peter Cetera (listen to Chicago 5) and Tyrone Porter of the Doobie Brothers. Another guy who is still a great player is Ken Wild from Seawind. Abraham Laborial is a great Christian player who may have been recorded on more music then any other studio cat. The guys in his 70's and still smokin.

I've got a few.. Fred Hammond, Aram Bedrosian (look this guy up). Absolutely love Tai Anderson of Third Day. Nathan East (definitely not underrated but he doesn't get much attention either). The Buddha of Bass Bill Dickens..

I saw him live once, so much fun to watch! Awesome player.

I gotta say one guy I rarely hear people talking about is Juan Alderete from The Mars Volta, I think he's easily the Jaco of our time.
