Check out this interesting video I stumbled across.

Yes...interesting when guys of that stature get together. I suppose they could have subtitled that jam...7 wannabe flamenco guitarists LOL. Stu Hamm was the only one who even looked like he knew where 1st position is. I'd have given a G string to see just one of those guys do some real low end thumping (where's Babbitt when you need him)? Sheehan was the flashiest, Al demonstrated some terrific tech skill, while Flea seemed quite subdued (perhaps a bit intimidated :nono: ?)...but at least he was fully clothed.

So, as far as Anthony Jackson...

Definitely a true revolutionary and one of the more important figures in the electric bass's history, Stu your argument hasn't fallen on deaf ears. But I can't keep him all the way up at #9 on a ROCK list when (judging by his credits listed on wiki) just about all of his recorded work, or at least significant recorded work is in what could broadly be called jazz. I do believe he probably deserves to stay on this list. My immediate temptation is to lower him a few spots, to the teens. On an all genre list he wouldn't be 'penalized' like this obviously

Re: Sheehan...

Awesome story Ssoyd! I've heard that Talas ALMOST broke through, and it's a shame they didn't. That video you linked blew me away and really impressed me on Sheehan's part, he is SO creative (imo) and unique stylistically. (I know you kinda disagree...)

I think Sheehan probably can't reasonably be lowered below the teens really. But I need to start doing criteria breakdowns. Which I'll do next post...probably tomorrow.

Re: Hungate:

As far as things stand right now, I consider his placement at 33 to be frankly absurd. The Jamerson tidbit is cool though and DOES influence my thinking on him somewhat. I'm with Ssoyd on wanting to be educated a bit more on him. i.e. beyond Toto and Boz (tho I don't know Toto at all, any performances with them I should check out?)

Re: Phil Chen:

You've definitely convinced me he belongs on the list Stu lol...the question is where. Again, top 40 seems borderline absurd. But in fairness I won't lower him until I listen to some of his work, which I trust your judgment is excellent. Sounds like a pretty legit guy and he'll get a good spot regardless, even if it isn't top 40

Oh and Stu...

LMAO...Now if he could pluck with that magic twanger I'd move him into the top 10.

By that time he must be suffering from a severe case of "shrinkage".

No that Was Woodstock 1999 not too far from where I live and the temp hovered around 90 - 100 deg that weekend.

It's actually really an outstanding performance, if you can ignore the fire starting and the evil raucous crowd.

Question (that's been discussed a million times but anyway). What do you two think about Noel Redding as a potential candidate for this list (in a low spot)?
