I like them all, but I'll vote for Greg Lake.
Who are these men of lust, greed, and glory? Rip off the masks and let's see.
But that's not right - oh no, what's the story? There's you and there's me.
That can't be right.

Wetton by a hair over Bruce and Lake. Wetton's bass playing is phenomenal and if anything his voice has gotten stronger over the years!
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Jack Bruce is probably my fave bass player out of these, but vocal wise, I'll have to give this one to Sting. Greg Lake was brilliant in the early years though. 
I've never really been into Wetton's singing style.

Out of those it would probably be Sting. I don´t particularly enjoy the voices of any of the other guys. Great bass players though.

Like them all, but Greg Lake narrowly ahead of John Wetton.

John Wetton was the most interesting musically. Sounds great on SABB and Red.

No Gene Simmons or Kip WingerSmile? John Wetton but only if he doesn't sing.

All very talented people but as ELP are my favourite band then Lake gets my vote. (although Sting's Ten Summoners Tales would be my favourite solo album release by any of these)

I don't recall Jack Bruce, but from the other 3 my favourite one for bass playing is John Wetton, but he is my least favourite on vocals. For vocals, I really like Lake and Sting a lot, though I might go for Lake just because of his performance on Epitaph.
