    Heh, I thought of a new way to do the best bassist thing. !?!

    Marcus Miller, my favorite jazz and slap player, especially as his is deeply rooted in blues rock, funk, with a solid rhythmic groove.

    I was early on impressed with Jack Casady and John Entwistle. Noisy rock bassists With lots of top end growl!

    More recently I’ve a deeper appreciation for bass heavy bassists. My favorites, Lee Dorman on the In a gadda da vida album. Really great sound with upper bass/lower mid definition. And Stephen Stills on the CSN album. Deep, broad Fender tone. Like Wooden Ships.

    All good ones, IMHO. I guess I picked John E. because of my history listening to the Who.

    I was impressed to see Lee Dorman's name in a poll actually, Iron Butterfly get no respect! I saw Entwistle with The John Entwistle band twice in little clubs in MA and RI sometime in the early 2000's. Yes, he could play. They had all their stuff in a 100 seat club and sounded great except they kept tripping the breakers. Entwistle did a long solo which of course tripped the breaker right in the middle. He kept flicking his picks out into the audience and one landed right in my brother folded hands:laugh:. We were probably ten feet from him as was every other bass player from central MA.
