    I think I'm in love with all three of you. I was going to say those.
    If we were all in a room together their would be so much WIN that it would caus a rip in the space time continuum and bring about an end to the world as we know it.

    "Haha.

    Funnily enough, Testament is in your sig, and one of my favourite bass intros is the one for Souls of Black! "

    WINRAR!

    Souls of black friggin rulz.

    I know what you mean about the singing but I find his voice has improved somewhat over time. Also you can always listen to YYZ and other instrumentals

    I'd say Nicky Wire, although I'm extremely biased as he's in my favourite band.

    Paul Simonon from the clash and good the bad and the queen. I also like manny because he's a legend.
    Best bass line imo is in "Money" by Pink Floyd:

    The bassists (theres been 2 or 3 I think) who play in Jamiroquai, very talented.

    Perhaps not the most "talented" bassist but Kim Deal from the Pixies for her minamalistic style, it works very well.

    I mentioned him in the op, but yeah I am surprised so few people have mentioned him. I saw he live a couple of times and he is even better. Such a nice, down to eath guy too. He stayed to chat and sign autpgraphs for about 3 hours after the show.

    "jaco pastorius of course

    I love you (in a hetrosexual way)
    Victor>Pastorius>Sheehan imo but they are all godlike.

    "Like Hendrix, Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson you mean? How old are you, 15?"

    Actually I am 14. ZING! The people you mentioned are not bass players. ZING!! Also for your information Jackson didn't die he just went home. ZING!!!

    They can't all be ZING!ers, but you make it so easy. ZING!!!!
