Phil Small, I like the way he tells a complete story on the bass rather than a repetitive 12 bar 4 or 8 pluck tuck
dusty hill.hell of a performer
James Jamerson..He is the big daddy that all others come from
Cliff Burton because he came up with some amazing bass lines.

I'm not saying she's the greatest but I think Tina Weymouth is often overlooked. So many Talking Heads songs have great yet simple basslines running through them. I mean who doesn"t love playing that Psycho Killer bass line?
I can't decide between Sid Vicious and Mike Dirnt.

Sid couldn't play a note. It was Steve Jones played on NMTB. My own fave bass player is JJ Burnell of The Stranglers.
Mike Watt is the man.
Well it's mike dirnt for me
