Greg Lake is certainly up there among my favorite bassists. Top 20 at least.

My favorite bassist is Tony Levin, but Squire is easly #2.

Yes, easily way up there for me too. I was just saying that im reply to that quote because Lake was a member of both groups. Squire is #2 for me too, behind Geddy Lee.

That's the coolest thing i've ever heard in my (what now seems to be somewhat pathetic) life. I couldn't be more jealous of you.

Favorite bassists: Levin, Squire, Bootsy, Flea, P McCartney, Wetton, Lee, JPJ, Entwistle, Watt, Geezer, Claypool, Deacon, Rutherford, Lake, Bruce, Lesh, Harris, Cox.

I'd also like to mention Kim Gordon, Tina Weymouth, Kim Deal, Belinda Butcher and D'arcy Wretzky. Cuz chick bassists are not only hot, where would alternative rock bands be without them?

I only have one album (AMATEUR! ) 'The Yes Album' I think its their biggest. I bought it after hearing 'Yours Is No Disgrace' on Planetrock and it is excellent. I think they are very similar to Rush (of whom I have several albums). Also a mate has one called 'The Ladder' which I noticed wasnt on the list. Whats it like? Which one should i buy next?

The Ladder is alright, the title track is a neat little song and it was used as the theme for the computer game Homeworld, if you ever played that game you might have heard it.

I recommend Fragile and Close to the Edge, they're the most similar to The Yes Album and they're the more accessible of their prog material. If you like those then also check out Time & A Word, which was their second album and it's very underrated.

Oryt I aint too big on games and aint ever played 'Homeworld'. I will probably get Time & A Word now that youve said its underrated. I like to go for the obscure ones first usually & the underrated ones are almost always the best (IMO).
