Am simply amazed

that in this discussion of the greatest bassists, Paul Simonon is barely mentioned. Simmo.

(calm down, Kaz)

My own personal list of favorite bassists?

-James Jamerson (Funk Brothers- Motown session player)
-Peter "Hooky" Hook (Joy Division, New Order)
-Andy Rourke (The Smiths)
-John Hassall (The Libertines)
-Bootsy Collins (JB's, Parliament Funkadelic)
-Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers)
-Paul Simonon (The Clash)
-Drew McConnell (Babyshambles- not only fine, but a fine musician)

and my absolute favorite-

-Mani (The Stone Roses, Primal Scream) He's a legend.
