You're reading this, so now you can't stop. I'm Jessica. I'm 15 years young. I'm thin, with long black hair, blue eyes, and a white dress. If you don't send this to 5 topics in 5 minutes, I will stand next to your bed at 3:00 A.M. with a knife and kill you. If you do, I will do a LOT of FUN things with you... :)

thanx kala for your im put,,its something to consider,for my 2nd and 3rd choices

He is great, sure.
I'm not an expert so this is only personal taste, maybe is what I "feel". What I like the most is a bass that is always "carrying the weight" of the song but is not too noisie: Ian Hill, or just the extreme long and strong bass sound, that's Butler.
IMO Cliff is in the middle that's why he is not im my top list

hey kala the bass players you have mentioned are great,,but what about cliff burton

--

I would chose only Ian Hill but I should mention Geezer Butler and John Paul Jones

hey asylum im with you cliff em all,,,some people say jimi hendrix was the best guitarist and thats debateable,,but bass players ,only one comes to mind--CLIFF BURTON--may he rest in peace

Its funny you say that, because I started out on a six and made that jump down to four. lol
Mostly because of time being an issue, I started playing when I was only 16, or 17, and I wanted to play in a band so freakin bad that I went to bass. I still play both, but to be honest my heart lies with the bass guitar, I think thats because my first rock hero was the demon, better know as Gene I will market anything for a buck Simmons. lmfao!

Anyway since Gene I have admired many, such as Les Claypool, Cliff Burton, and of course our boy Geezer! Oh and of course Lemmy! lol

Later my peeps!

I like Jason, but I will take a Cliff Burton, or a Steve Harris, or a Geddy Lee, or a Les Claypool before ole Jason. No disrespect an all but Jason is just alright, but doesn't lead the herd when it comes to originality.....
