I'll go with Jack Bruce of Cream, or Jaco Pastorius. Always my top two favorites.

I just got turned on to Jaco Pastorius by the band I interviewed last week. He is awesome, not really my style of music but there is no denying the man was brilliant.

I am of course a huge Rush fan, so Geddy Lee is still the best in my book.

^ Yeah I second that.
Rush are amazing and Geddy is really talented. Playing the bass, keyboard and singing at the same time is so cool.

Also, Steve Harris- I'm a huge Maiden fan
Lemmy from motorhead

and Cliff Burton was really talented too.

Jaco is great. I Bootsy is good too. Same with Flea

Charles Mingus, Peter Hook and Kim Deal (not the most technically amazing bassists, but their lines were killer), Scott LeFaro, Stanley Clarke.
