Question What are your most influential albums?

What albums have most influenced you too pick up bass and just fling out some tunes?, or Maybe too even start bass.

Mine are

Red hot chili peppers - BSSM, Californication
Primus - Sailing the seas of cheese
Metallica - Kill em all
Rancid - ...And out come the wolves
Nofx - the decline (Ep), So long and thanks for all the shoes.
Smashing pumpkins - Siamese dream
Pink Floyd - Dark side of the moon
Pantera - Far beyond driven
Placebo - Placebo
Silverchair - Frogstomp
Vex Red - Start with a strong and persistant desire
Victor Wooten - A show of hands

Thats about 12 albums, Some punk, some metal, and some grunge.

i spose wat made me pick up a bass was the sound really. everyone i know picked up a guitar and i jus wanted to do somtin which was a lil different but still a key part to any decent band.

trying to be like Flea, Roger Waters, Roger Taylor was somting that kept me going really. I wanted to be just as good as them (and many many others) which is why i still play

my influences:

Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (Klaus Flouride is amazing pick bassist)

Coroner - all (amazing swiss technical metal band 87-94, very prog, very good, their bass/vocalist played all quick running in unison with guitar while singing)

Sabot - all (bass/drums instrumental duo from czech republic, punk-jazz-prog-metal-core)

Primus - Sailing The Seas Of Cheese (their best, this could be done almost without guitar)

Rush - Moving Pictures (Geddy Lee just rocks)

- cfe -

Smile Type O

I started played bass because of Peter Steele. I listened to October Rust, Type O Negative's third full length album (4th for the freaks who count the Origin).

Until now I never really played like Pete though. I played pop, rock and brute nu-metal. Mostly fingerstyle. But since I bought a Boss ODB-3, I'm exploring the overdriven pick bass sounds, which are fab in my opinion.

Type O's a great band. Varied with a great sound. Every album again. And thus a huge influence on the way I experience music.

This prob seems too obvious a choice 4 a great alubm, but i dont care.
Slayer - reign in blood, that has had the biggest affect on my life as a bass player, due 2 the sheer speed of it. Tom Araya, bass god!

Secondly, Napalm Death - Scum, is possibly 1 of the greatest extreme albums ever made, and because the bass sounds soo amazin on that album, that made me want 2 play bass more than ever.
