Dude seemed so unassuming on stage, but when he would cut loose it could get serious. Just a regular guy that always comes to mind when i think of Kick Ass Bass!

There´s no doubt about it :-)

John Entwistle from The Who, of course. Chris Squire from Yes is another good one.

In no particular order:

Geddy Lee....super smooth and ubelievable live, makes it seem so effortless.

Felix pappalardi, great tone and always recognizable. Extremely melodic.

Jack Bruce, pure energy

Flea, character and sound, again always recognizable, and can cover so many different genres.

Robert DeLeo. Underrated imho, very often victim of unfavourable mixes but really fills out the one guitar songs.

John Paul Jones, great all round musician and pioneer.

Just my 2 cents

Jaco Pastorius is my favorite by far. Couldn't find any better.
