Glascock was the most talented, but I would have to pick Hammond -- one of the most entertaining bassists I've ever seen.

All quite interesting, but I feel Glenn Cornick was the thing for Jethro Tull, while John Glascock was the thing for Carmen.

I can't pick one because I love them all for different reasons. I do have a special appreciation for Jeffrey though. He's such an enigma. By some accounts not a musician at all, by others a great bass player. By my own ears a solid bass player with excellent timing though perhaps unremarkable technique. By my own eyes a showman nearly outshining Ian himself, able to play complicated bass parts while leaping across the stage. I've even questioned whether he was really playing, or was he miming while someone else played hidden backstage? But how could he get away with that and be so convincing? I've read interviews with Martin who said he had to be taught bass parts by strapping a drumstick to his shoe so it would hit a drum on the 2 and 4 instead of the 1 and 3 or he couldn't follow the beat. How do you go from that to playing Thick as a Brick live in front of millions of people? Enigma, I tell you.

I guess I just picked Jeffrey didn't I?

As much as I think the Anderson/Barre/Evan/Palmer/Glascock/Barlow lineup was the best, I have bit of a soft spot for Jeffery. After all, he was the bassist on Brick. Cornick was also good. Heck, every musician in Tull up to and including Stormwatch were masters at their craft.

Is there any particular video where his antics are visible? LOL

On Stormwatch on all (but two) songs, Ian plays the bass. Very load and with plectrum. I don't really like it. Although the album itself is great.

It's Hammond! Not as talented as the other two. bass-wise, but easily the most all around interesting of the three.

Glenn Cornick's bass line's wrapped the rhythm, provided counter point and paved the way for what lay ahead. (Spot subtle pun). Voted for this guy, not so much out of some "simplistic" best but he was a perfect jazz playing rock bassist to help complete Jethro Toe's sonic identity.

John Glascock was a fine player, a guy whose mix of invention and convention brought a lot to Tull. No wonder IA was distressed to lose him.

JHH. Enigma. Yes indeed. I think he had incredible talent (bass line in Aqualung's guitar break f'r instance) but not the lasting interest in music itself. Probably hated the business which is very understandable.

Not forgetting their incredible drummers either.

Hammond-Hammond.  

I saw him on the TAAB and Minstrel tours, brilliant bassist!  All over the stage! 

Cornick opened for TAAB with Wild Turkey, he is also fantastic.  No slouches in Ian's bands, ever.
