I'm going to have to be a rebel here and totally go against the grain. Although I agree the instrument is being awesomely represented by all the posters' choices, I'm going to have to say that the finest bassists I've ever heard have been "no-namers" in little, hole-in-the-wall jazz and fusion joints, in some of the most off-the-wall towns. Not to mention some of the Top-40 players who have to cover just about every single style of music to keep food on their plates. For every Billy Sheehan, every Stu Hamm, every fill-in-the-blank-bass-hero, there are many others who we will never hear. That's what's great about music: you'll NEVER be numero uno in the world, which leaves plenty of room for even Stu Hamm to improve. There's a big difference between listing the world's finest bass players and the world's most influential bass players, in my opinion. God, I love this instrument!
