Top 10 bass guitarists.  This one is especially hard for me as I play and have so many influences.  But here they are.

1)  Geddy Lee (Rush)--the man who inspired me to play
2)  Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath)
3)  Cliff Burton (Metallica)--beautifully crafted bass lines
4)  Steve Harris (Iron Maiden)--mr. marathon on bass
5)  Jack Bruce (Cream)
6)  Jaco Pastorius--shame he died so young
7)  Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel/King Crimson/BLUE/solo)--funk fingers are awesome
Cool  John Entwhistle (The Who)
9)  John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin)
10)  Billy Sheehan (Talos/David Lee Roth/Steve Vai)

(in no particular order and obviously a little case of girl power  laugh I have been playing bass off and on for about 17 years and it is definitely a man's world, so female bassists tend to get my vote)

Jaco
Stuart Hamm
Tony Levin
John Lodge (Moody Blues)---Nights in White Satin is THE reason I wanted to start playing. It isn't a complex bass part but it is so full of feel that it is amazing.
Sting
Aimee Mann (Til Tuesday)
Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads)
Meshell Ndegeocello
Sean Yseualt (White Zombie)
Johnette Napolitano (Concrete Blonde)

Again, in alphabetical order:

Adam Clayton
John Entwistle
Kim Gordon
Geddy Lee
Sting

Hmm....that's about it. The bassist is too often the lesser of the two guitarists, almost an afterthought (Heck, the Rock Band game didn't even include a bass career option).
