Same. While Commerford isn't one of my favourite bassists, he certainly is great. Many nice lines and a beautiful tone... when I saw RATM live, he was perfect.

You're right!

He is an excellent bassist, I feel like a bad RATM fan for leaving him out.

Peter Steele isn't so bad either... Have you seen that guy play an upright bass as though it was a bass guitar?? But at 6' 8" he can do that.

Lars K. Norberg (Spiral Architect) - relatively unknown due to the nature of the music (metal that usually only appeals to musicians that like to try and dissect everything that goes on in a song, extremely complex), but what he does is simply phenomonal. All bassists should give their album a listen at least once just to see what's being done, even if it does go completely over their head.

Michael Manring - does some fantastic solo work on fretless and piccolo basses, look him up on youtube.

how about we talk about what a good bass player adds to a song, or the parts that made them great in your mind.

Too many people google someone stupid to look classy.

The bass playing on What's Going On is incredible and while I'm not big on Marvin Gaye it definitely made the album much more enjoyable.

I also find Andy Rourke's bass playing is criminally underrated. I know it's pretty easy to stand in the shadow of Morrissey and Marr but songs like Girlfriend in a Coma, Unhappy Birthday have very spunky and great bass lines. Unhappy Birthday in particular, the bass line is the best part of the song. I think he has a unique style and should be given much more credit than he does. So many people completely ignore Joyce and Rourke it's ridiculous, like last year when someone offered Morrissey and Marr a million dollars or something to do a reunion tour together and didn't say a word to Rourke or Joyce, it's ridiculous.
