Alright, time for best bassists.

John Entwhistle
Geddy Lee

No one say Paul McCartney. He was an awesome singer/songwriter, but he wasn't one of the best at playing bass

Billy Sheehan is quite amazing
also Victor Wooten is made of 2% H2O and 98% Win

As much as I'm a fan of really flashy bassists, I'm always interested to listen to simple, yet fitting basslines. I think that I true testament of a bass player is their ability to fit right into the pocket of a song and play what the song calls for. Paul McCartney, Garry W. Tallent, and John McVie are such bassists.

I'm sure there's at least one more thread about this, please search.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
