Every song needs a good bassline, right? Well almost all do. If you have a band, you should include a bassist. We've seen some good ones and some great ones.

In the world of Rock-n-Roll there's no shortage of bassists who really make a song pop. For example, some of rock's best bassists include Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones, John Entwistle from The Who, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, The Beatles Paul McCartney and Phil Lesh from the Grateful Dead.
