BASS EXPO 2013 with ICMP: The humble bass guitarist is an under-appreciated beast. Yet try to imagine the last six decades of popular music without James Jamerson, Paul McCartney, John Entwistle, Jaco Pastorious or John Paul Jones, to name but a few.
We whittled your suggestions down to a top 60 and the voting began in earnest. So, without further ado, in reverse order, we present the 60 greatest bassists of all time, as voted for by you. Kicking things off in style at number 25 is Curtis Mayfield's super-funky early 1970s bassman, Joseph 'Lucky' Scott.
