Had to be done, just to celebrate the new sub-forum.

I listed a few in another string, but I would have to say ..........


Chris Squire.

He and Alan White took be to places I didn't think a band could go. Truly amazing. And sorely missed.

But honorable mention to Geddy and Paul and Flea and a few others.

Yours?

I gained a lot of respect for guys like Jimbo Wallace (Reverend Horton Heat) when I was learning rockabilly. Upright bass is a tough instrument to play, and some of those guys rock the crap out of them. Not to mention dancing with them, dancing on them, etc.

Victor Wooten is amazing, definitely a master of the instrument but his playing doesn't grab me the same way as JPJ. I see Dusty Hill has been mentioned a few times... can't say I get that one either .. he suits the band but honestly I'm sure that lots of players could fill that slot and nothing would change.
