1. Geddy Lee
2. Les Claypool
3. Chris Squire
4. Steve Harris
5. Flea
6. Cliff Burton
7. John Paul Jones
8. Matt Freeman
9. Jack Bruce
10. John Myung

What does your list look like?

Roger Waters and Sting would have definitely been on my top twenty... somewhere around 12 and 13 probably.

For some reason, the first to pop in my head was Phil Lynott.

I would definitely say that Roger Waters would be on my top 10. He's amazing. Dave Navarro has some decent talent. I would say he's in my top 20.

when has Dave Navarro played bass? I know he didn't with Chili Peppers, Janes Addiction or his solo acts.

If Roger Waters is such a badass, why does John Myung look so bored?

Don't see the camera emphasize much on Myung, do ya? The bass player usually isn't the most animated musician in a band, unless that band is LED by a bass player. He looked like he had some pretty good finger work on that fret board on the two ocassions he's actually shown in that video, if you ask me.

Speaking of bass players, Jean Baudin from Nuclear Rabbit is one hell of a bassist!
