At the end of each year, we tally up all the article views on No Treble to come up with a list of top 10 most popular bassists, based on readership. Of course, this generates a lot of comments… “Flea should be #1!”, “Flea shouldn’t be on the list!”, “Ox should be top 3!” or “where’s James Jamerson???”, and so on.
As we said on our Facebook page, “there’s one guarantee with lists: someone will always be able to say there’s someone missing (or lots of people missing). And they’d be right.”
So here’s the list for 2011 of No Treble readers’ favorites. Congrats to all the bassists who made the top ten, and thanks to our readers for making this so much fun.
