Famous Bassists - List of Famous Bassists

If you’re a fan of rock music then you’d probably be aware of the significant role bassists play in the band! Bass instruments are important in the production of rock music and only talented bassists can do full justice to the genre! Victor Wooten, of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, is considered one of the greatest bassists of all time. With his intricate jazz melodies and complex R&B music, he revolutionized the musical scene in the 1980s. Jack Bruce is another gifted bassist who played with John Mayall's Blues Breakers and experimented with various sounds in jazz, rock, and R&B music. Another legendary bassist, Jaco Pastorius, actually started out as a drummer but was forced to turn to bass following an injury which prevented him from playing drums. He quickly mastered playing the bass and went on to become one of the most sought-after bassists of his era. While most bassists are males, a few gutsy women have dared to venture into the field and create niches for themselves. Melissa Auf Der Maur, Esperanza Spalding, and Sean Yseult are among the talented female bassists who have taken on the male-dominated bass arena. This section gives you information about the life and works of famous bassists.
