Top 5 Bassists

A list of my favourite bassists that have influenced or changed my thought process on the instrument.
5Marilyn Manson
Holy Wood (In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death)

Twiggy Ramirez Twiggy is more of a great song writer than a bassist, but if you listen to a lot of his parts there is some really nice subtle changes as songs progress. Plus he's wrote some amazing songs in his time.
L.D. 50

Ryan Martinie Another bass player that has a unqiue playing style. Not quiet as reserved or as subtle as the others on the list, he brings mind-melting bass licks, with a different plucking style many will spend years trying to get right.
3The Mars Volta

Juan Alderete I consider this guy to be very underrated. He is a phenomenal bass player and one that is resereved in how he goes about writing the riff. Listen to Amputecture and he shows both insane technical ability with some mad endurance and, of course, always air tight.
Frizzle Fry

Les Claypool Little reason to be given here. The guy single handedly destroyed the slap technique and rewrote it. Les writes both face-melting lines, but also some of the catchiest stuff going. Listen to a track by him and if you don't tap your foot at the very least, you're dead inside.
1Dir En Grey

Toshiya A brilliant bass player, that knows just how to map out a bassline that is both technical and/or melodic, but also gives what the song needs. Given that there shouldn't be a lot of room in the band to be flash Toshiya manages it in a non-pretentious way.
