    Default Best Living Bass Player

    Hey Guys,

    Just wondering who everyone thinks the best living bass player is? Victor Wooten has my vote, but I'm just getting into the world of bass so would like to check out the other greats. GO!

    The first ones that come to mind are:

    Geddy Lee, Billy Sheehan, David Ellefson, Steve Harris, Les Claypool and John Paul Jones.

    Tough one.. I'd probably go for either Victor Wooten, Larry Graham, or Jonas Hellborg. Les Claypool is amazing too, but pretty much a Graham^2.

    This is such a easy one Chris Squire IS the best of the best. Made some of the best music to this day along side Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, and Steve Howe. Played a Rickenbacker.
