I mistakenly titled the thread, but tried to rectify it in the OP:

"So, I thought it might be nice to show some love for some possibly underappreciated bassists out there."

Nice list of players that you had, BTW!

I never post anything anywhere without doing more than basic research, often in depth.

I'd like to mention Klaus-Peter Matziol of Eloy, Jon Camp of Renaissance, Hansford Rowe of Pierre Moerlen's Gong, and all (?) Magma bassists.

Yes!! I can't believe I forgot to mention KPM. Eloy would not be the same without him. Clap

Definitely Jon Camp!  He was one of the 1970s "Rickenbacker Masters" including Squire, Rutherford, Ray Bennett (Flash), Gary Strater (Starcastle) and a few others I can't recall this late at night! 

Speaking of which, I'm quite remiss in not nominating my friend, bassist Ray Bennett of Flash!  He was a flat-mate of Chris Squire in London, and they seemed to cross-pollenate each other's style!  Here, dig!
