My Top Five Favorite Bass Players
1. Chris Squire
2. James Jamerson
3. John Entwistle
4. Tony Levin
5. Paul McCartney
Speaking of McCartney, does anybody think he is better than Lee?
Ariel, could you do a criteria breakdown. From what I have seen you know a lot about the bass
Squire 7/10 or 8/10
Graham 9/10 or 10/10
Squire 13/15 or something
Graham 14/15 or 15/15
Graham 13/15 or something
Squire 12/15 or 13/15
Graham not sure but from what I remember hearing about him...13/15 or something
Squire is somewhere around 59-61 total points
Graham is somewhere around 62-64
:-( Pretty close though, but I don't see S. going ahead
Oh yeah...McCartney is clearly more talented than Lee and better. Whether he could be raised over Lee is a good question. Let's see...
Lee 7/10 or something
Macca 13/15 or something
Lee 11/15? (don't know enough about Lee here)
Tech skill -
Macca - 12/15 or 13/15
Lee - ? don't know Rush discography well enough someone enlighten me here. Let's be nice and say Lee randomly gets assigned like a 11/15 or something
Macca 57-58 total points
Lee 53 total points (?)
I need someone who knows more about Lee than I to assign points to him. But *I'd* based on what I currently know have Macca higher.
PS Gotta give credit where credit is due and admit some of these point assignments are based on my memory (which is very clear) of Bassfreak's old point assignments...others aren't, where I either disagree with him or forget his point assignments. I'm not just copying all his scores though, only the ones which seemed reasonable to me and which I remember clearly.
