I'm a huge Rush fan but Billy Sheehan is a local product. I'm trying to take emotion out of this though. Each one has a unique style. I actually played Jaco's runs on piano so I'm a big fan of him too. I don't think I can state that one of them is the best. My brain is working too hard...

Being a Zeppelin fan, I voted for John Paul Jones. His bass lines are perfect to Pages playing. I think Led Zeppelin 2 is his best work. The Albert Hall DVD is amazing. On another note, Jeff Beck's Spanish Boots came up on my iPod today. I've always thought Ron Wood was a better bass player than a guitarist.

Jaco wins this easily for me. His stuff with Weather Report would be enough, and adding his playing with Joni Mitchell to that just makes it all the more clear.

 

I think Bootsy Collins deserves to be mentioned as well.
