I'm influenced and inspired more to create/write/play music through my bass playing by music in general than by 'bassists'. I rarely buy music because the bass player is oustanding and I find that a good piece of music will inspire and influence me regardless of bass and/or technique used in creating it. What do y'all think about this? How are y'all most influenced by music? - Are you inspired to play when you hear great bass or great music?... or both... or neither?
