I think Roger is a great bass player. Just listen to the bass on "Hey You" or "Run Like Hell", thats some killer playing right there. Cool

Though he definitly isn't one of the best bassists when it comes to technical proficiency...he had some of the best bass lines. Money without a doubt has one of the best basslines of all time. This is why I believe that though he is not a master of his instrument, he really is a musical genius

Dave played fretless bass on Hey you as well as a number of others.

Roger is a good player but not great.

Roger is a great bass player. In my opinion, you don't have to be fast to be good. You don't have to fill every moment of the song with sound to be great. Leaving space was an attribute of Pink Floyd. Spaces. Roger is extremely talented to be able to string pieces of music together in such a melodic way withough ruining anything. Hard to explain. I love his skill.

And who's the fool who wears the crown?

mediocre at best, but his playing was never what attracted me to Floyd, it was of course his song-writing and the emotion his voice can evoke

Except Roger didn't play bass on either of those songs.

Roger has a very basic style, and sometimes he sounded awful - but on songs like Let There Be More Light he did impress.
