    I personally think that the two have entirely different styles, so it's a bit hard to compare the two. I tend to prefer the laying of a solid groove myself.

    My vote is for the Ox. He was playing rock bass beforfe there was much of a genre - kind of laid the groundwork. He was a pioneer.

    ok, classic response- "you cant compare the two"

    but *personally* i like flea more, simply because ive heard more of him

    How could someone say Entwistle has no chops? He was one of the first to play really fast runs and solos on bass.
    I'd say Entwistle wins even though I never really managed to get into The Who's music.
