    I don't know about best bassist, but since I'm a fan of punk, I do love the way Mike Dirnt handles his Fender P-Basses. He adds so much flavor to Green Day, and even though he's not even close to being considered "one of the greats", I think he kicks ass...

    IMO, there's 2 problems in this world when it comes to bassists:
    1) There's simply not enough bassists out there.
    2) Most bassists don't get to do as much as they are capable of. Many have a potential that just never has the chance to shine.

    That's just my opinion, anyway.

    Well, I'm kind of blown out of the water on this one. John Entwhistle was my favorite. I guess now, that would make Tim Bogert my #1.

    GEDDY LEE! GEDDY LEE! GEDDY LEE!

    Altho Flea comes in a close second. I don't much care for RHCP music, but dang, that mo-fo can play the BASS! Check out his basswork on Alanass Morsete's "You Outta Know" track on Jagged Little Pill.

    GEDDY LEE! GEDDY LEE! GEDDY LEE!
