    Beat me to it haha


    Koja from Disciplina Kičme or, while he was part of London scene, Disciplin A Kitschme

    William Brunard

    Oh, the why's...

    Lemmy, because like Django he truly lived to play music. And made of the best grooves in all of rock music with Ace of Spades.

    Koja, because he's a visionary. Don't know of anyone else who, during 80s, played bass pretty much like a guitar with distortion and wah pedal, got a great tone out of it too.

    William, besides being one of the best living upright bassists, because of how motivated he is. Take a look at his cello playing nowadays. Everybody who achieves mastery, as he did with bass and previously on guitar, and as soon as that happened, they take a student chair all over again, that person deserves a good look.
