I've always loved Stu Hamm most.


I like how he plays his bass like a guitar at first, then at 2:00... like a piano (nice song treat inside), then like a banjo. lol. Guy is awesome.


And then you have his classic:


The mullet gives him power.

I'd love to see your signature/links too, but the huge and obnoxious ones have caused me to block all signatures.

Jannick Top, and Bill Laswell would probably be my two favorite. Maybe not so much for their technical skill in particular(and neither is shabby) but both for their contributions in creating great music in general.

De Futura, Infernal Machina, etc. will always be favorites of mine.

As for Bill Laswell, one of the most underrated, under-appreciated, and overlooked geniuses in all music.

Man, for as much as I've used Bill Laswell's loop collections, I never realized he was a bassist. I must check him out. Thanks Skaligojurah.
