    It's not even a close contest. Rhonda Smith, most known for her gigs with Prince and Jeff Beck. Saw her jamming with Jeff a couple years ago, front row at a local casino. Blew the rest of the band away. Stellar bass solo, too, and I usually can't stand those, but she had mad chops.

    She's wicked smooth and smokin' hot.

    Yeah, Billy Corgan allegedly showed her how to play all of the bass parts with a video camera.

    No offense, but D'Arcy isn't that good. She was in a good band, but I wouldn't be surprised if Billy came up with the bass lines, and wouldn't be shocked if he played them on the albums.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    If I remember correctly Corgan played everything except drums on those albums.

    I'm not sure which one is playing bass, but she's my favorite.



    Then Wanda from the Iron Maidens.



    Then Catherine Popper, Jack White's bassist.
