    He may no longer be with us but Cliff Burton was and is the greates Bassist ever! The man was a musical genious. Just listen to For Whom The Bell Tolls on Metallica's Ride the Lightning.

    Of course I voted for Les Claypool... Defined the bass for millions of followers, leads one of the greatest bands that ever played, and is one of the Dog Gods of Priechelon 5....

    Lead bass - Geddy Lee. But there are so many others too. I'll give a quick response since I don't think I could make a single choice of "world's greatest".

    Geddy Lee

    Followed by...

    Roger Waters
    Keith Emerson
    Stu Hamm
    Flea
    Les Claypool

    No one comes close to Cliff Burton. May he rest in peace.

    Do you think that there is a bassist forum that has a poll for the "Best Warbird"?

    Jason is a great bass player, but I dont think he is near the best. Rob Trujillo is certainly a better technical bassist and I like his playing style more.

    By the way Les you need to add Rob Trujillo to the list, even if he does not get any votes he certainly is one of the best of all times and his work with Suicidal Tendencies, Ozzy and Metallica makes him a worthy mention.

    Ben Shepherd was the bass player for Soundgarden, and Ill agree that John Deacon was a hell of a bassist...
