_-*Top Ten Bassists*-_
Well i have been looking around the forums, and i have been seeing all of these "Best Guitarist" Threads and i wanted to give the Bassists some credit too.
So pretty much discuss on who you think are the greatest bassists of all time.
My top 10 list. No Particular Order
Mike Dirnt - Green Day
John Entwistle - The Who
Cliff Burton - Metallica
Steve Harris - Iron Maiden
Victor Wooten - Bela Fleck
Roger Waters - Pink Floyd
Geddy Lee - Rush
Flea - Red Hot Chili Peppers
John Paul Jones - Led Zeppelin
Les Claypool - Primus

Roger Waters wrote some good music, but a great bassist? mmm. Dave Gilmour played a fair few bass lines on Floyd's albums.
Jean Jacques Burnel (The Stranglers) listen to his sound on their BLACK AND WHITE album. The room literally rumbles!

I'm doing a rock/metal top ten since adding jazz/funk/virtuoso bassists will complicate it and this is the rock/metal section.
Flea (RHCP, Mars Volta, Jane's Addiction, studio work, Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony)
Steve Di'Giorgio (Death, Sadus, Vintersorg, Iced Earth, Quo Vadis, Control Denied, Testament, Autopsy)
Geddy Lee (Rush)
Steve Harris (Iron Maiden)
Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, LTE, Yes, 100 others)
Paul McCartney (Beatles)
Les Claypool (Primus)
Rob Trujillo (Infectious Grooves, Metallica, Ozzy, Suicidal Tendencies, Cantrell)
Scott Reeder (Kyuss, solo, the Obsessed, Sunn O))) )
Martin Mendez (Opeth)
Sean Malone (Cynic, Gordian Knot), Dirk Lance (Incubus) and Billy Gould (Faith No More) just missed out.
