Bass Players I Wanna Boink

In no particular order, and I’ll try to keep it to five or so.

Catherine Poppen

(look for the green dress and listen for the nasty bassline)

She’s not with Grace Potter these days, now has a trio gig with Norah Jones.and favors a shorter neck Guild.

I thot it was DOWN IN THE RIVER

I just wanna point out that there are ZERO bass players in yer clip.
Also, it’s a different song with different words and shit.

One of my female bass players on my “list” would be a patriarchal hot tub time machine Tina.

(Even tho, this is not a good look on her, I like the art school girl look she did in the Heads)

Yes, in prior editions of BPILF where I allowed myself ten, Tina was always on the list.

Picky Picky

And outside of those things ya got nothing :grinning:

Bryn Davies

Perhaps one of the first Rock Bassistas that really caught my attention, tbh I think it was her brilliant use of leather, as much as her playing.
Suzi Quattro

She, too, is on my Long List.

Hagar Ben-ari


I’ll give her a listen in due time, but she’s now on my Liszt as well.

When Christopher Waltz was on the Late Late Show for the second time, he entered the stage to applause, walked past Corden to the band stage, and kissed her hand. Only then did he return to the main stage to join Corden and the other guests.

When Corden tried to give him shit about having a crush on her, he merely smiled and replied, “It’s no secret.”


Also, thx for the necro. I’d forgotten this thread and I do have a couple of additions. Maybe @Ape does too.

While Mimi isn’t technically a bassist, she does have an engaging style none the less.

OK now, back to bassistsists
