Nobody's mentioned Flea yet, I find that kinda odd... I also would say the following are pretty awesome bassists:

Cliff Burton
Geezer Butler
Rob Trujillo
Geddy Lee
Tommy Shannon

Steve-0

I'll go with most of this group based on a combo of innovation and playing talent -- cannot believe Jaco wasn't mentioned before this. If you don't know Jaco, you don't know bass.
