Best bass player of today

Who do you think the best bass player of today is? I think it is Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Viktor Wooten is amazing, the guy from Robert Randolph and the Family Band is amazing... the guy from The Who, John Entwistle, isn't really from 'today.'

I mean TODAY. Not classic rock. Pick bands from the 90s and up.

John Entwistle died.

I'm not much into "today's" music, but Tommy Shannon(Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble) is my fav. bass player.

Wow you need to buy a calender man. This is 2006. Last time i checked, the 90's was long gone. If a classic rock band is still around, they can be considered "today", because they are still around TODAY.

Steve Harris of Iron Maiden, yes they are still a current band since they are still releasing new music

I'd say the best living bass player is Dusty Hill.

Mike Dirnt is a great bassist .... unfortunately now he just uses root chords and simple bass riffs. really want him to create more riffs in their next album like the riffs in kerplunk, dookie and insomniac.

matt freeman for me is the best bassist of today.

Jean Baudin people!! Seriously good player, plays an 11-stringer, in a band called Nuclear Rabbit. Look them up.
And no-one has said Claypool yet?

Jaco Pastorius? I didn't know that someone who has been deceased for 18 years could be considered a musician of today :P. That being said, Wooten, Sheehan, Myung, and Hellborg.
