CS 100 GREATEST BASS PLAYERS 48 49 DANNY CLINCH 50 LYNN SPINNATO 51 Andrew Gouché Gouché is so strongly linked to modern gospel bass that it’s shocking to think the genre didn’t exist before “Gooch” helped will it into existence in the early ’70s. This world-class sideman (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince) and his MTD 6-string personifies the swagger and tone of current gospel—and by extension, the sound of modern pop and R&B. Willie Weeks Best known for arguably the greatest recorded bass “groove solo,” on “Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)” from Donny Hathaway’s 1972 Live album, Weeks has parlayed brilliantly tasteful, subtle variations on your basic root–5–octave shape into an iconic career backing everyone from Eric Clapton and the Doobie Brothers, to Vince Gill and Mark Ronson. Bakithi Kumalo Three decades after the humble South African and his fretless Washburn 4-string first appeared on Paul Simon’s Graceland, Kumalo’s immediately recognizable tone and touch on classics like “The Boy in the Bubble” continues to shine as pitch-perfect examples of non-American bass magic. Steve Harris Iron Maiden’s signature gallop on singles like “Run to the Hills” and “The Trooper” catapulted the band to the forefront of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Founder Steve Harris’ propulsive playing and punkmeets-prog songwriting laid the framework for the ensuing powermetal subgenre. Killers, The Number of the Beast, and Piece of Mind are all essential listening.

52 53 54 55 Gary Willis The 5-string ace pioneered propulsive, improvised fretless bass lines and bebop-infused solos, both as a member of Tribal Teach and as solo artist. Equally as influential, he promoted turning up your amp and using a lighter touch, developed a comprehensive right- and left-hand fingering approach, and helped to popularize the thumb-pluck/palm-mute. Bernard Edwards Edwards grounded chart-topping Chic hits like “Good Times” and “Le Freak” with tight, motive lines via his “chucking” technique, where he emulated holding a pick and struck the strings with both nail and finger. He and guitarist Nile Rodgers also supplied their signature grooves on hits for Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Rod Stewart, Sister Sledge, and Madonna. Jeff Berlin The bridge between Stanley and Jaco and the second wave of fusion bassists, Berlin combined his classical violin training with a love of rock and jazz to fashion a fleet, melodic support-and-solo style that broke ground with Bill Bruford and led to a successful solo career. As founder of the Players School, his volatile views on music education are ongoing. Cliff Burton In only four years with Metallica, Cliff Burton recorded Kill ’Em All, Ride the Lightning, and Master of Puppets, and changed the world of metal bass forever. Known for his lightning-fast fingers, articulate soloing, and “lead bass” role, Burton achieved legend status before he died in a band bus crash in 1986.
