Most underrated bass player; that dude from Faith No More, whatever his name is.

MARK KING from Level 42. Just YOUTUBE some and see him slapping that bitchy bassguitar like a depraved spank-slut while singing about love and all..

Let's not forget Flea...

Guess i like "Slappers"

Some of the name's mentioned on this post really make no sense. Bassplayers aren't good just because they play with good musicians and you fancy their ass?!? Most of the time they are lesser guitarists who are friends of the band and are easily replaced by the guy at the burger king, especially in metal. There are few GOOD bass players

+1 all around, you just forgot Victor Wooten :thu:

I believe Krist Novoselic was an underrated, critical ingredient to Nirvana

Lots of great ones but stand out in my old mind:

Chris Squire - total go for it bass player

Mike Rutherford - not only the avoid-the-downbeat monotone pedal of Apocolypse in 9/8 and the fuzz goodness of the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, but he becomes the funk master on Invisible Touch

Geddy Lee - part of Rush's answer to the odd-meter metal I always wanted

John Wetton (King Crimson) - total crunching player of doom

Tony Levin - awesome obviously but I still would have had to cut were it not for the Bruford-Levin reunion jamsolo during the ABWH show being so badass

Brian Beattie of Glass Eye - killer alt/funk/fretless/SilvertoneFuzz ;) player and some awesome tunez

Joe Macre of Crack the Sky - the other answer to the odd-meter metal I always wanted

but also must mention dudes in cynic, death, voivod, even eric johnson
