Top 10 Rock Bassists
Bassists outline a song’s harmony and designate its rhythm, which is why they’re so important in rock and metal music. For this list, we’re focusing more on classic rock and heavy metal band bassists who were innovative, great songwriters or standout bassists with a commercially successful track record. We’re focusing less on the top session players or technical masters. Join WatchMojo.com as we count down our picks for the top 10 bassists in classic rock, rock 'n' roll, hard rock and heavy metal.
