    As far as my approach to the role of bass and playing in a three-piece, I would have to say Geddy and John Entwistle.

    Hard to pick just two, but Victor Wooten for his innovation and mastery of the instrument, and John Entwistle for his style and speed with the finger technique

    You mean Tim Commerford.

    For me it's a combination of 3; Pino, Roscoe Beck and Rocco Prestia

    Old thread!

    If I had to narrow it to two, it would be James Jamerson and Sting.
