Editor’s Note: At the end of each year, we tally up all the article and video views on No Treble to come up with a list of top 10 most popular bassists. This is entirely based on readership, not on opinions, polls or anything else. Just having some fun.

Robert Trujillo

Robert Trujillo gave us an incredible gift in November – his 6-year effort and labor of love, Jaco: the Film. The award-winning film went on to be the #1 best selling documentary on Amazon opening weekend. The film’s soundtrack was also released, with contributions by the man himself.

The busy Metallica bassist also spent time in the studio, working on Metallica’s next album.

Robert was our first guest on Groove – The No Treble Podcast, which debuted in epic fashion in 2015. Music sites around the web shared his episode, which was heard on No Treble alone 50,000 times (not to mention all the other places it was broadcast).

Add it all together, and Robert is the #1 reader favorite bassist on No Treble for 2015.
