Who's anyone's favorite bass player?

I like many ones, but Ric Fierabracci in my view is just THE man!!! I love his unique style, his groove, his ideas - for me he is the Virgil Donati on the bass, and luckily the two of them can even be heard playing together :D !

Did you guys hear him on the new Weckl album? As much as I like Tom Kennedy (and the man is amazingly fast and great), Ric's playing just does it for me!

I am looking to check out Rufus with Planet X. I've heard great things...

I love Ric's playing - it's just so rad!!!
I agree, Rufus was quite the man in the recent tour of Australia; man did he lay down some sick stuff.
But i must say you can't forget the likes of Billy Sheehan! Now that man is quite a freak...

I don't like Sheehan's sound at all.
Speaking of weird sounds, not to forget Bunny who is also a monster, with great licks and melodies.

Ric Fierabracci is my favorite too!

I really love Bunny Brunel's playing too!

Ricc and Rufus= AMAZING!! Both incredible technicians and both work incredibly well with Virg, the 2 best yet IMO.
