It's got to be John Entwistle absolutely incredible bassist ..if you haven't seen his bass solo go to youtube and search for John Entwistle Solo it will blow you away……..
The Ox.He did for the bass what Jimi did for the guitar.He was far ahead of his time and opened the door for every other bassist after him to get out in front.
Entwistle pioneered the distorted sound,not Cliff Burton.Check out Live at Leeds.
Krist Novoselic because without him in Nirvana they'd probably just fly off track and Cliff Burton because his solo in For Whom the Bell Tolls (just to name one) is just purely amazing.
There's a youtube video of For Whom The Bell Tolls with the bass sound enhanced and it's about 10 times better
David Ellefson (Megadeth)
And Geezer Butler, Cliff Burton, John Entwistle,Paul McCartney, Jaco Pastorius, Les Claypool.
