I’m sitting here at the airport and I just realized I never did a “favorite bass player” list. Here are some (there are many more) of my picks for the best rock bassists throughout history (in no particular order):
John Paul Jones
Doug “Dug” Pinnick
When another Facebook user posted the following comment: Isn’t it ironic that you forgot your own bassist, Tim Gaines?
Michael responded with this message: If I had anything to say about Tim I would say it. That’s how I am. I’m very direct. I think you may want to post this on his page. He’s about as passive aggressive as they come quite honestly. Regarding my favorite bass players list? I never posted it and I’ve been asked to for a few months (ever since I posted my favorite guitar players and drummers lists). Maybe you didn’t see those? I’ve done that for the past few years. Nothing new. Tim isn’t on my list because I wasn’t listening to Tim play bass growing up or even now. I don’t listen to Stryper albums daily. It’s really not as complicated or as deep as you seem to be implying. He just didn’t make my list. Sorry…….
Notice that the other members of Stryper have made his recent lists:
Here’s Michael’s list of top “Christian” drummers? Here goes (in no particular order):
