Metallica fans, which bassist for the band was the best?

Ron McGovney (all I could find of his metallica stuff was demos, such as this. no bass solos)?



Cliff Burton?



Jason Newsted?



Robert Trujillo?



Which bassist does it best? or whose some of the best ones?

  • I like Jason. Nothing wrong with the others at all. I prefer Jason's style of playing. I think his technical proficiency is superior. Perhaps too good for this particular band, which led to his leaving

    • thanks, I'm watching it right now. damn that dude's talented lol.

    • this reminded me of a video that Kyuss's Scott Reeder had on his personal fb page, trying out his custom made Warwick 8 string bass playing space cadet but can't find that video, anyway, I found this

  • Cliff, by far.

    Unfortunately, even Cliff was low in the mix. Rob is low in the mix. Jason wasn't because he demanded that after they basically cut him out of the Justice album.

    They still seem to have the mentality that the low end can be carried by James' low end and Lars' kick drum (which isn't how music works). Rob should bitch bc his tone is awesome.

  • Cliff was the best hands down. I'm only a Metallica fan of up to "... And Justice For All" because the Black Album had everything go downhill.
