His stuff with DRL back in the day was amazing! What a dream combination of musicians.

Billy's played with a killer group. Vai, Becker, Howe, Paul, just to naem a few. I could go on (and on and on and on!)

> Kyle Kyle (Bang Tango) - funkiest bass lines I ever heard.

Doc.

You're right there... That guy is all over Psycho Cafe.. "Someone Like You" had a great bass-line. There's another song on there (sorry been years since I owned the cd) where he does these great harmonics wrapped around a killer groove...


Always liked Chuck Wright as well (especially QRIII, House of Lords, first Bad Moon Rising cd, and the Chaos is the Poetry cd he did with Lanny Cordola.)

I think Cliff Burton from Metallica's original line up was a very original bass player, his playing sytle and style in general is just kick ass. If you aren't fammilar with his solo playing and talent, go and rent "Cliff 'Em All" now!

Wooten. Maybe Pastorius, but I haven't heard enough of his playing. I don't know much about bassists, so my opinion probably isn't worth much, haha.

The more I thought about it, it would be impossible to say that my influences were limited to just one person in particular. I have taken my favorite bass players and tried to fuse them all together.

My favorites are Geddy Lee, John Alderete, Billy Sheehan, Stanley Clarke, Duff McKagan, Mel Schacher, Michael Anthony, and David Ellefson.

But... I think that if I had to single out ONE GUY who changed my bass playing forever... I'd say it was John Alderete. The reason being is his playing introduced me to a whole new field of playing bass.

Nowadays, Geddy Lee is my "bigger" influence, but as far as the bassist that changed my musical life - that was Alderete!

Wow! Talk about being resurrected from the dead I didn't even remember this thread. I'm still going to go with Wally Voss as my primary influence followed close behind by Alderete, Hamm and David Harbour.

You know..
I've tried with Jaco, I really have. I've owned all of his solo cds, several Weather Report cds and even spent months learning "chromatic fantasy" but I just can't listen to him. Do not get me wrong I think his playing is absolutely incredible and he influenced many of the people that I was inspired by but excluding "Come On, Come Over" I would rather not listen to him.

Joe, I sort of feel the same about Jaco, but I cant consider him an INFLUENCE. The guy is in a world of his own... (and you can interpret that however you want). He's a great bass player, but he's not MY kind of bass player.

That totally sums up my feelings as well...
I'd much rather listen to Geddy Lee.
