That was great. Here's another

Sounds a bit like the original Jeff Beck Group.

That Budgie really is pretty great. But I take back what I said about Shelley: he's good, but not noteworthy enough to make this list or the 'honorable mentions' thing I want to do.

Oh, and I raise you one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQuKhoJ9pso

Breadfan fuck yes

EDIT: Damn this Budgie impresses me. They're ridiculously ahead of their time for what '73? This sounds like mid 80s thrash, no wonder Metallica covered it.


First album is from 71....
Breadfan is from 73 though. I think of them as Rush meets Black Sabbath.
Shame these guys didn't get as big as Sabbath.

What did you think of The Author?

Since I've been a Blues fan since my high school days back in the early 60s I have to post the original. "Ain't Superstitious" was written by Willie Dixon and put on record originally by Howlin' Wolf.

And Beck with Rod Stewart a couple years ago proving he hasn't forgotten how to Rock.

I agree that Budgie's Bass player doesn't belong on the list. A good bass player with a derivative style from a somewhat obscure band shouldn't be included unless the list is expanded to 1,000 or so.

As a HUGE Megadeth fan, I've never liked their cover of I Ain't Superstitious. Possibly their worst song, imo.

Good bass though.

Derivative of what?
And I dont see why he couldnt make the list, seeing as how you have guys like Tom Hamilton and Duff McKagan currently on there, both of whom are totally annihilated by Burke in just about every criteria.

Pretty sick song. I think your description is pretty apt. Throw Pink Floyd in there too, for this song hehe

You posted the same link twice haha :durr:

That original is pretty awesome. Who's the bass player? He's pretty sick.

Haha I love that Megadeth cover, I think it's brilliant and a highlight of Peace Sells. But to each his own hehe. A lot of people hate it (I'm not sure why)

Derivative of...other bass players? He's durn good, but that's not enough to make a top 100 I'm afraid, or we'll have to start adding guys like Greg K. who I really adore but just don't cut it in terms of all-time greatness. Duff is a joke and he's gonna be dropped off the list. Tom Hamilton, I haven't heard enough Aerosmith to really assess but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets dropped too.

So was thinking about this hard last night and figured it out partially I think...

31. George Porter
32. Bernard Odum
33. Carol Kaye
34. John Wetton
35. Greg Lake
36. Mike Rutherford
37. Mike Watt
38. Pino Palladino
39. Phil Chen
40. John Myung

Something like that. Sound good? Total stab in the dark hehe but I've been reading on these guys and that sounds ROUGHLY right to me

Oh shit, I suspect Mark King jumps into the 30s too and bumps Myung out. What do y'all think?

Myung is slightly more iconic...although that may be in part to his somewhat "mysterious" personality. Made some bass innovations in progressive music. King...seems pretty solid. I may not be the expert here...but I'd give Myung the nod.

Rest of the list makes sense based on previous discussions...

Hahaha well put. "Mysterious" personality alright. What do you think of John's playing Stu?

I'm gonna put King ahead of Myung because he's so much more innovative and influential.

Everyone cool with something like this:

31. George Porter
32. Bernard Odum
33. Carol Kaye
34. John Wetton
35. Greg Lake
36. Mike Rutherford
37. Mark King
38. Mike Watt
39. Pino Palladino
40. Phil Chen

Could be...I did think it was a little strange when radar.com named Myung as the #1 greatest bass guitarist of all time...

Listened to Scatterbrain (currently listening to another track off that album). Chen is a hell of a musician, very creative bassist. Very deserving of the spot we're giving him :smile:
