All the guys who've been mentioned so far are excellent. My personal favorite bassists are John Entwhistle, Geddy Lee, and Chris Squire.

Here are two awesome bassists that nobody has mentioned yet:

Sean Malone:


YouTube - Cynic - Veil Of Maya

John Tout:


YouTube - Renaissance - Can You Understand

First you have to differentiate between those who can play blistering solos with tons of flash and technique, and those who are 'groove' players who sound great with the rest of a band. There is a place for both.

You are so right. Big difference between Billy Sheehan and Tony Levin. Both very good at what they do, but both so different.
