Legendary producer Rick Rubin has worked with some of the greatest bands, including The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, and System of a Down. And after decades of watching some of the world’s greatest bass players, he has chosen his favorite of all time. The truth is, none can hold a candle to a certain ex-Beatle. Rubin named Paul McCartney his top bassist of all time in an interview with Mojo. Rubin said, “everything I’ve seen, Beatles-related, is either about the songwriting or Beatlemania… yet in my opinion, (McCartney) is the best of all bass players, he’s No. 1.”

Rubin and McCartney previously worked on the Hulu docuseries “McCartney 3, 2, 1”. So, who are your favorite bass players of all time? What makes them great?
