He's Paul McCartney. Your argument is irrelevant.

Somehow, I would find the title of world's richest pop star unflattering o.o … he deserves it though

At least he didn't lose to some nobody. A good list.

Paul is rated more highly as a bassist than he should be because he's a Beatles. He's still a very good bassist though.

I admit to not knowing a lot about the technical aspects of music. I can't really tell who's the "best." I know I like listening to McCartney more than I like listening to the other people on that list…but whether that is to do with bass playing or overall musicianship, I don't know. I'm gonna go with overall musicianship. He may not be the BEST bass player, but he's still darn good. It's the songwriting and singing ability that do it for me more than anything else where Paul is concerned!

I think that Paul is, was, and will be the bestest bassist ever. He surely influenced many of our great bass players today, but overall Paul is the bestest. a-hard-days-night-paul-6 Just my point of veiw.

An underrated bassist has to be Paul Simonon, especially on The Guns of Brixton.

He's from the Clash. He would probably be the bassist to beat in terms of punk bands.
