Banned because I hate you now.

One day and Im hated
Justin Chancellor - Tool
Chris Wolstenhome - Muse
Mani - Stone Roses/Primal Scream
Tina Weymouth - Talking Heads

Those four bass players have directly influenced me. My fifth influence is going to be a somewhat cheaterish catch-all - "shoegaze and trip-hop music".

I stand out like a sore thumb among all the funk and metal players I play with.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.
These are in order:

1.) Flea - Red Hot Chili Peppers
2.) Twiggy Ramirez/Jeordie White - Marilyn Manson, A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails
3.) Les Claypool - Primus
4.) Tim Commerford - Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave
5.) Jim Creegan - Barenaked Ladies

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
