Bass Players That Have Their Own Voice

Postby CP 103 on Thu Aug 28, 2008 6:52 am

These are not bass players who sing, (like John Wetton), but bass players who are recognizable by their playing style.

Tim Commerford from Rage Against the Machine.

Not my particular favorite, but you can always tell it's him, even on side projects.

+3 on Mick Karn, the guy is just brilliant and inscrutable. Let's not forget HIS main inspiration, Percy Jones. Props to Joe Osborne(the other LA '60's session titan---check The Fifth Dimension's "Let The Sunshine In", Scott McKenzie's "If You're Going To San Francisco" or The Byrds' "Mr. Tambourine Man" for starters)punchy hard as nails Jazz Bass thru 4x10" guitar amp(yep)sound--as opposed to Carol Kaye's rounder, fatter P-bass sound. Also, Tim Bogert's lead bass psychotic episodes, better heard on Cactus' stuff than Vanilla Fudge or Jeff Beck.

Les Claypool, Everyone can tell its him, when I first heard the theme for robot chicken I knew in 2 seconds.

He has a very distinct style that few have the chops to really replicate.
