In no real order:

Les Claypool

Justin Chancellor

Mani

Kim Deal

Paul Simonon

John Entwhistle

Danny Vapid

Robert Trujillo

and special mention to Jeordie White/Twiggy Ramirez, just because his dead simple Marilyn Manson basslines meant I had lots of familiar material I could learn dead quick so it's becuase of him I stuck at bass and didn't give up straight away I guess

Do you realize that this is essentially "who's your favorite bassist?"

Well, wouldn't your favorite bassist be systemically related to which bass players you idolize/are influenced by?
#21
A lot of my favourite bassists have not really influenced much/any of my playing.

I always say the three Johns:

Francis Pastorius III, Baldwin, and Entwistle.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

John Entwistle, John Deacon, Roger Waters. All three could write basslines that fitted songs perfectly, held down the rhythm of the song as well as sounding good on their own.
#34
Duff Mckagan, Tim Commerford, Ben Shepherd
Quote by Confused4930
Fender? Never heard of them...maybe I should check them out....

Influences? Duck Dunn, Bruce Thomas, Jack Bruce, James Jamerson and Suzi Quattro--in no particular order.

Because my, oh, ~$275 of Levy's straps isn't enough for me already.
