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 the top 10 most popular bassists. This is entirely based on readership, not on opinions, polls, or anything else. Just having some fun.
Billy Sheehan is no stranger to the annual Reader Favorite Bassists lists, and this year, he made it once again.
One of the most popular stories we published this year was Jon Willis’s look at the isolated bass line of Mr. Big’s “To Be With You”. In addition to that, Billy was part of Octavision’s debut album (along with Victor Wooten), shared a video on “How to Make a Cheap Bass Play Better”, and joined Jason Raso and Paul DeLong on Raso’s “Rocket Launch”.
Just over four years ago, No Treble readers were blown away by Octavision’s debut single, which featured the mighty Victor Wooten on bass. Now the group has released its first full-length album, called “Coexist” with Wooten and Billy Sheehan.
