Opposite of the thread a few down, who do you think is very under-rated, or has been a big influence on you but no-one else, or whom you never see on "How do I play like...?" type threads but still rocks anyway? Mine: Adam Clayton - No chops, but there's not a U2 song with a bassline I don't like, and he improvises well live. Colin Greenwood - Like above, but he also keeps great time with his drummer, and unusually for his genre, doesn't play roots all the time. Jeff Ament - proficient with both a pick and his fingers, cool, but not overdone use of slides with fretless work, and above all, really good tone.
