Billy Sheehan, Robert Trujillo and David Ellefson among Music Radar’s 10 best bassists right now
Music Radar has unveiled its list for the “10 Best Bassist in the World Right Now” which includes Billy Sheehan (Talas, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big, The Winery Dogs, Sons Of Apollo), Robert Trujillo (Metallica, Suicidal Tendencies), David Ellefs0n (Megadeth, Altitudes & Attitude) and Roger Glover (Deep Purple, Rainbow).
Music Radar stated as follows with respect to Sheehan‘s number one ranking: “As if Sheehan‘s past work with Mr Big, Steve Vai, The Winery Dogs, Dave Lee Roth and other rock and prog greats wasn’t enough, most recently he’s added Sons Of Apollo – a supergroup featuring Mike Portnoy, Neal Morse, Bumblefoot and Jeff Scott Soto – to his monstrous CV. Sons Of Apollo burst from the blocks with debut album Psychotic Symphony, but is was the band’s electric live shows that have really shown what this low-end powerhouse is truly capable of.”
In regard to Ellefson‘s number five ranking, Music Radar indicated: “With Megadeth enjoying some downtime of late, Ellefson seized the opportunity to share his story, his technique and a little playing with audiences across America on his Basstory masterclass tour. The shows have been very well received and we hope he lines up more for 2019 (that’s if Megadeth don’t release a new album first).”
