How is it that no one has mentined the Who? John Entwistle should be knighted for 'the real me' from Quadrophenia. Freakin' amazing. And when they played '5.15' live, he always had a freakin' sweet solo. like sweet solo. not to mention 'My Generation'...i'd take him over John Paul Jones any day.

Especially live
they have some great bass lines, Olsen Olsen and Gong are great too

I became a bass player because of Adam but my biggest influence is Carlos D., simple but effective bass lines

Listen to Joy Division or New Order; some lovely bass lines from Hooky there.

If anyone doubts the power of bass, they must listen to The Who (John Entwhistle), Rush (Geddy Lee), Primus (or any other of Les Claypool's bands), the Red Hot Chili Peppers (Flea), and Iron Maiden (Steve Harris). The bass doesn't always drive the songs (though with Rush, Primus, and Maiden it usually does), but the bass is nearly always a prominent feature of most songs by these bands.

You kindof have to train your ear to seperate all the tracks in a song so you can hear the bassline seperately from the lead and rhythm guitars. It's tricky, but you get the hang of it eventually. Once you do, I think your appreciation for the music you listen to can only increase.

a thing that I really appreciate in the general music. It's an underated thing nowadays, I think. I just complain that being Hip-hop the prefered music style of today, that in a big part of songs from this genre you can't hear a bassline (in bass guitar) or even a bassline made by synths.

Seriously, anyone who appreciates a good bassline should check out Rancid's song "Journey to the End of the East Bay"

Anyone who appreciates a good baseline should check out any song by Elvis Costello's old backing band, The Attractions.

Quality, quality stuff. For instance....

Nice one You really need a good baseline to pin down a song and give it some direction when there's a crazy circuis organ and a raging lunatic lyricist in the mix as well.
