Metalisart's 5 favourite bassists

I want to learn electric bass one day, and my dream is a Rick 4001/4003.

5. Tom Hamilton - Aerosmith



Just take Sweet Emotion, his signature song. The added bass marimba gives it a certain crunch.

He seems a fun guy too.

Favourite track: Sweet Emotion

4. Ian Kilmister (Motörhead)



Also known as "Lemmy", or so I heard.

He's not the most technical player and he's actually a guitarist, but he has a unique sound, made out of customized Rickenbackers (and Marshalls). They made a signature model, the 4004 LK:



Would love to get one, but it was produced in VERY limited quantities.

The word icon was invented for him.

Favourite track: I Don't Believe A Word

3. John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin)



He influenced my number 5!

What can I say? Not the most famous face of Zep, he gave the band a thunderous foundation.

Favourite track: Good Times Bad Times

2. Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath)



Should be an inspiration for any metalhead, as he was part of a certain band that created our beloved genre.

Heavy, pumping bass lines, great stage performance. Did he play the parts on "Heaven & Hell"? I believe so...

Favourite track: Iron Man

The last four are all great choices. Man, Lemmy's bass is sweet.

Number 5 is criminally underrated.
