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.
As with any list though, there’s always disagreement about where someone might place, if they should place, or who didn’t place at all but should have.
That’s precisely why we don’t do opinion-based lists. We’d rather just celebrate the bass players who were most read about, and who were in the most watched videos over the year.
