Speaking of which, how about Tal Wilkenfield?

You're right. That's just what Gene Simmons does in between spitting blood, flying, and blowing smoke up everyone's ass.

I think The Bangles have a female bass player too.

Carol Kaye would like to sue this thread for massive ignorance. Quite possibly the greatest bass guitar player in history, yet she gets lower billing than "the White zombie chick."

For shame, gentlemen.

In fairness, the point of this thread wasn't to rank female bassists or even to name any.

Re: Why so many female bassists?

In "Guitar Hero" and "Rock Band," playing the bass is boring. Therefore, bassists have no talent.
