Underrated bassist

Who do you belive is the most underrated, as well as most overrated bassist in music today? Personally, D.D. Verni and Shane Embury

Erm, i dont know many under-rated bassists but if so i would have to say the bassist from R.U.F.I.O which i dont know his name, a great punk bassist tho.

I know just some overrtaed-bassists:
Paul Mc Cartney and Sting!!!
All the people say, that their bass-lines fit perfectly to the song.
I have to admit this.
But why the fuck are these two guys so great bassists? I think it's normal that the bass-line should fit to the song.

Still doesn't come any underrated bassist to my mind.

I THINK THAT REX IS A BIT IN THE SHADOW OF THE REST OF PANTERA
THAT GUY HAVE SOME FUCKIN GREAT BASS LINE
JUST LISTEN TO FLOOD'S SOLO THE BASS LINE IS AWESOME
I DON'T THINK THAT SOLO WOULD BE SO DAMN GOOD WITHOUT IT

CONCLUSION: REX IS A BIT UNDERRATED

I should check that out. I know Kyuss (it's Queens of the Stone Age now right?) but I don't remember what they sound like. Did this guy leave Kyuss when they changed names?

as far as underated bassist goes I would have to say the Deadsy. He's realy realy good. I would have to say I do get tired of hearing about how great cliff burton is though. He had one like 2:45 solo so what!!!
I have 4 words: Geddy Lee & Les Claypool

I must agree that Cliff is over rated.If he's so great, then why is he dead (lol)? Creature (I believe that's his name) from Deadsy is a good bassist, but his bass is really really distorted. Plus on their Tom Sawyer cover, he doesn't play the bass solo, the keyboardist does it all. So the distortion makes him seem better than he really is. As far as underrated bassist goes, Peter Steele yet idolized, is a very underrated bassist. Even though his bass is pretty distorted, I believe he is pretty good.

True but how many people can honestly keep up with geddy? Peter is a great bassist though I doubt he can do it either...
its like saying that any drummer could keep up with the guy from NILE's double bass...
cheers

***Feels sudden need to put in some Nile***
I think Newsted kills Burton (or killed, going on with the previous joke), he just doesn't show it with McTallica ( ) because they are ass holes
you know ... bla bla ... Mustaine murders them ... I'll go to hell for heaven's sake.

Sorry I'll shut up.

I rarely hear anything about John Myung, and he is amazing. Geezer and Gene Simmons dont get enough credit either
