As I said I'm a bass player that doesn't care about the
standard rules and especially that doesn't want to play
backside the others!
Among my favourite bassists there are Billy Sheehan, even if I don't
love the music he played in the early '90, he's absolutely a giant!
He's able to give a tremendous energy and groove to those fucking 4 strings!
Then I'd say Trey Gunn (innovative and mastodontic!), Tom Kennedy,
Rufus Philpot, John Myung and Stu Hamm.
I go on reminding the mighty Tony Levin, he has really changed the history of the bass,
as a few years before did Jaco.
Then there are bassists that play in a really incredible way!
They're Sean Malone (Gordian Knot), Michael Manring, Jay Terrien and Bill Burke.
These guys play in a really absurd way, using loops, tapping, overdubbing etc. very frequently playing
song only with the bass, and without other instruments!
I really like their way of playing music and one of the next future projects I'm working on is to do something
