Bassists don't hover on the forum day and night like guitarists. We've got lives to lead, music to play and whiskey to drink.

I'd rather go at my hands with a hacksaw than play lead guitar, and I'm only slightly exaggerating.
Jesse F. Keeler - Death From Above 1979
Dan Briggs - BTBAM
Tim Ward - Fall Of Troy

Plenty more I really admire, but I go in phases with tone/technique, and these are my current favourite players.
Steve Harris
Justin Chancellor

1. Alan Lancaster
2. Dusty Hill
3. Mark Evans

Just three off the top of my head. There are many more and I have no favorites. Just player who entertain me with sound. Not about entertaining me "technically"

Life don't need to be that hard or complex, just like Bass playing. Needs to be fun and entertaining.
