    I am not sure how many people really enjoy bass work. I really dig some players. This is not a poll to as who is the best or the most talented. List out your top 7 favourite bass players and also their best work / era according to you.

    Here is my list. Not neccessarily in the order.

    1. Bobby Daisley in his Rainbow / Ozzy Osbourne days.
    2. Jimmy Bain in his Rainbow / Dio days.
    3. Neil Murray in his Whitesnake days.
    4. Roger Glover in his early Deep Purple Mark II days.
    5. Billy Sheehan in his David Lee Roth and Mr.Big days.
    6. Les Claypool (Anyday)
    7. Rudy Sarzo in his Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne days.
