    I'm the best bassist of all time (and I'm not shy to admit it, either):

    Jaco Pastorius
    *
    Early career backing the Temptations and Supremes. Moved on to work with Pat Metheny and Weather Report. Probably the best technician ever to play the bass.

    Les Claypool

    From his days with Primus, Les Claypool has been the leader of monster bass playing for two decades. His incredible riffs and slap technique have elevated his name as one of the greatest.

    Although with a little experimentation I found that you always seem to get JPJ if you put your location as UK... :meh:
