Could anyone alive play 64th notes at 120 beats per minute?   Flea, Les Claypoole, and Vic Whooten.
Who can do this then go into cut time?
Who can do this and throw this bass behin his back catch it and not get off time?

NO compitition!

Vic is the best!

I can throw my bass off the roof of a 54-storey scy scraper, then take the elevator and pick it up on the exit of the first floor to play the ending 64th note, and still be in time. Dang, I must be the best bassist in the universe...

Forget about all the flash or showmanship, Victor Wooten is still by far the best bass player ever.  No one else can play the things he can and his compositional skills are just as good.  Don't believe me, listen to Clasical Thump.  Runners up would have to be Jaco, Stanley Clark,  and a personal favorite Les Claypool.

Flea from red hot chili peppers

not only is he one hell of a bass player, hes also a unique and interesting person. and i think hes a good role model (ha even with the whole tube sock thing...) hes got a good outlook and i think it reflects in his work
i love it.. you love it.. if you dont love it yet.. eventually you will love it
