Fans of the bass stylings of Colin Greenwood, normally associated with Radiohead.

Colin Greenwood, the amazing bass player from Radiohead, plays some of the most interesting and innovative bass lines known to rock music. Listen for Colin's intermittent bass on tracks such as Airbag and 15 Step. Another good example of what he brings to Radiohead is in the song Paperbag Writer. The fact that Thom Yorke wrote the bassline for The National Anthem doesn't stop Colin from rocking out during live renditions at nearly every concert.

    my main man! Coz seriously is one of the most amazing bass players on the planet and he's also pretty underrated. Without him being so avid I'd probably've never become a bassist, thanks, Colin.

    He totally dominated The King of Limbs. Especially the first half.

    As a fellow bass player, Colin is one of two who defines my work. I got my sense of groove from Tim Cormmerford (of Rage against the machine), but my sense of melody and minimalistic perfection, I owe it all to Colin.

    COLIN IS TEH SEX. In all seriousness, he's probably my favorite bassist of all time. he's far from flashy, but that's what makes him so good; his bass playing is always extremely tasteful and effective. Whenever I'm listening to Radiohead, I am always overcome with joy at how perfect the bass is in so many songs. He plays with such extreme precision but still sounds so loose and fluid. A truly amazing musician.

    a movie called meeting people is easy made by radiohead themselves, is mostly about ok computer. Colin had a plenty of interview there, talk a lot and is a funny guy.

    Colin use the instrument in a right way and he has a great feeling. He is not like those artists who play on a solo guitar with 4 thick strings, nor a rock bassist making meaningless lines. Just a modest guy on a stage, who loves good music.

    "He is thirty-two years old, with jet-black hair and large, kindly eyes. He is easily distracted and delighted by the world around him, favoring the words “mad,” “brilliant,” and “amazing”—the last spoken with a long, liquid stress on the second syllable. He has a habit of suddenly burying his face in his hands, as if he were sinking into despair, or falling asleep; after a moment, his face lights up again. Lavishly well-read, he can talk at length about almost any topic under the sun—Belgian fashion; the stories of John Cheever; the effect of different types of charcoal on barbecued meat—but he gets embarrassed by his erudition and cuts himself off by saying, “I’m rambling.” He is not above wearing a T-shirt that says “Life’s a beach and then you shag.” You might peg him as a cultish young neo-Marxist professor, or as the editor of a hip quarterly. But he is a rock star, with several Web pages devoted to him." - Alex Ross, "The Searchers"
