    I've noticed a lot of guitarist lists come up all the time, usually innacurate, but never lists of bass players. I know many people don't seem to care about this kinda thing, but as a bassist, I (and I'm sure many other players) have wanted to see a list like this come into existence. I think through some process (by voting or something, anyone wanna help me with this?) We could come up with our own fairly deep AND realistic list of the 100 greatest electric bassists. (I'm excluding upright players because they clearly deserve a list all their own.)

    Well, bassists are smarter than guitarists....

    ...and we know such lists are useless. ;)

    I say CAN the word BEST and replace it with
    INFLUENTIAL. That would make for a much less heated debate.

    Helpful to expose some unsung heros...yes

    They did 2-3 years back. In the infamous Timmy C article a month or two ago, it was mentioned that he was still bitter about the fact that he couldn't find his name on the list. All he saw was (according to him)a bunch of knuckleheads.
