I give him the most credit for introducing the Chapman stick to the world. He wasn't incredibly good at the bass, but he showed us all the stick and that was very good indeed!

He's great, but "god of bass" goes to the much over looked and simply incredible bass of Mr Peter Gee.
A living bass legend.

^the discography in the back of his book was six pages long.  And that's just albums.  Think of all the shows he's played....

Does Tony Levin ever sleep? How many different artists has he performed with?

My personal bass god...although I was tempted to pick for that bold guy option
also, a totally cool guy, just look at him in the Gabriel shows and DVD´s

A MASTER.... Not only he shines on stuff like LTE or his amazing work in BozzioLevinStevens, but he manages to shine in Crimson's awful Discipline! A master, a master.

bass god, second only to John Entwistle. His work with KC, LTE, BLS, and Peter Gabriel is amazing. Haven't heard his solo stuff, though.

To me, a guy who played with King Crimson. Good bassist, but I haven't heard enough of his work to judge if he's "the best ever" or not.
