John Myung from Dream Theater and Adam Clayton from U2, just the first two off the top of my head. Though really, there aren't many bass players (besides maybe Phil Joel, Geddy Lee, and Paul McCartney) that aren't in the dark all the time.

Thank you and goodnight.

I think John Wetton of King Crimson is pretty underrated as everyone seems to only focus on Fripp and Bruford.

Yeah...and I was never under the impression that Adam Clayton is an exceptional bassist.

Adam Clayton is one of those guys that exemplifies good bass playing, because he sits in the pocket very well. He's not particularly showy, but he is very solid.

Don't laugh until I finish....Gene Simmons. I realize that being in KISS almost disqualifies him from any serious consideration...but go back and listen to some of their older stuff. He is a pretty good bass player...if that's him playing on the albums.

Howabout Cliff Burton of Metallica?

Others that come to mind include Ben Sheperd, Jake Schultz, and possibly Flea[or maybe not].

Both Cliff Burton and Flea are very well known in the bass community.

Cliff Burton and Flea are definitely not underrated. Flea is arguably overrated, but definitely not underrated.

Adam Clayton is definitely underrated. He's not flashy or showy, so he's not noticed and praised all that often, but he is so solid in the pocket.

I'm going to move this thread to the Bass Forum. It doesn't really fit in the Secular Music forum (Christian bassists can be underrated too!).

Anyway, since Flea and Cliff Burton are definitely not underrated. Let's move the talk back on Ben Sheperd. His best work is definitely on Badmotorfinger and Superunknown, imo.

The bass player for Lincoln Brewster is incredible, and I've never even heard of him, nor do I know his name now.

Yeah, he is pretty good. I love his tapping style. And his bass. Can't remember what brand it is though, maybe a Warrior?
