Well, the 90's survivor thread didn't seem to go down well, but I thought it might be interesting to try this one anyway. Also, the fact that the thread on Fieldy is getting so many responses suggests that the bassists forum is lacking in interesting threads . OK, I have nothing better to do on a Monday night either . The rules, in case you don't know, are that everyone votes for their least favourite bassist from the list of remaining bassists. I count the votes at some random time during the evening, and the bassist with most votes is eliminated. The last bassist remaining is the winner, and therefore the best rock bassist ever. Obviously. I tried to pick ten of the most popular/influential/skillful rock bassists from any era, sorry if I've left someone really obvious out (I probably should have got someone with more rock knowledge than me to do this ). Let's face it, I could have easily put 50 in the list, but I don't want to be counting votes every night for the next 6 weeks. The List John Entwistle John Paul Jones Jack Bruce Billy Sheehan Steve Harris Chris Squire Tony Levin Flea Paul McCartney Geddy Lee Alright, round one starts now and my vote is for Steve Harris. I've always thought he is waaay overated. [EDIT] dang, i can't even copy from a piece of paper. i was meaning to put Geddy in instead of Mike Watt. Really sorry, but as of yet there has only been one vote, so i think it should be ok.
