All of the above?

For the most part, the styles are too different to compare.

1) Dave Carey (Bill Blue Band early 80's)
2) The late Keith Ferguson (Early Fabulous Thunderbirds, R.I.P)
3) John Entwistle (R.I.P.)
4) Lawrence Steele (Helluva blues singer, I played bass in a band with him when he played rhythm guitar but he's an awesome bass player)
5) Best bass player I ever saw live was the bass player for the Ventures, I can't remember his name, Bill Bogle maybe?

How can you not like Les Claypool and his Frog Brigade?

That band is a wind up and go, experience.

I look at this thread and for me its any bassist that just breathes life into the music hes playing, doesnt matter what his or her name is. How can there be one definitive bassist or any one definitive player on any instrument for that matter?

These polls people put up just crack me up, cause its just each of us who have an opinion I could probably throw down 25 bassist that at one time or another influenced me on bass, which I played for about 5 yrs in my youth. At that time I would say Entwhistle, Larry Grahm, Gene Simmons, Tom Hamilton, and I think his name was James Jamerson from Motown fame. But now I couldnt even begin to start a list. Of the more modern bassist I would say FLea and Claypool, of course then theres Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, and on and on and on ...............................
