Jack Bruce was the first bass player that stood out for me but John Entwistle is a firm favourite. Slightly more modern, Walter Becker.

Saw Jaco Pastorius a few times. Phenominal player and innovator.

Check out 'Portrait of Tracy'.

Andy Fraser,(Free) is still a wonderful player even though he's had an eye job done. As was Alan Spenner.(Greaseband,Bryan Ferry, Kokomo)

Jack Casady, Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna. The best bassist to record with Hendrix, and his playing allowed Jimi to really fly on 'Voodoo Chile' on Electric Ladyland. Maybe the greatest musician I have ever seen play live and gives a whole new meaning to 'driving rhythm'.

...the best to me the best bass guitarist will always be John 'The Ox' aka 'Thunderfingers' aka Boris The Spider' Entwistle without a doubt.

Here is a video of what fellow musicians thought about him, as well as a few dexterous moments of his ability:-

Oh, and a mention too, for my my son, bass guitarist with 'Lone Poets'...

Casady is a great call (and Kaukonen should maybe have got a mention in the 'solo' thread). The various manifestations of Hot Tuna are a considerable tribute to his versatility.

The first one which made an impression on me when I was a nipper was Mark King, he of Level 42 fame.

If you haven't heard this give it a listen, it is just brilliant. Won't get fooled again with Entwistles bass turned right up. Shows you just how good he is.
