Best of 2010: Top 10 Bass Players
To kick off the new year, we’re celebrating the top 10 most viewed, most searched for bassists on No Treble in 2010.
#1. Tal Wilkenfeld
#2. Jaco Pastorius
More than 23 years since the passing of the “world’s greatest bass player”, Jaco Pastorius is still generating serious respect from bassists around the globe. No Treble readers put him near the top, thanks to some rare Jaco footage we were able to find in 2010, as well as the story of Robert Trujillo and the “Bass of Doom”.
#3. Rhonda Smith
Rhonda Smith joined Jeff Beck for his 2010 tour and Live And Exclusive From The Grammy Museum release, taking over for Tal Wilkenfeld. A video featuring Rhonda taking a solo during that tour was one of the most viewed on No Treble in 2010, as was the news of the tour itself via Google and elsewhere.
