Having watched the man play from less than ten feet away on two seperate occasions, I consider him one of the Gods of Bass (or at least rock bass, I can't claim to know anything about jazz bassists).

    Technically very proficient, but as a song writer his stuff is very dull to me, few interesting hooks to make me want to hear it again

Yawn.

Great, but only human. The John Holmes of the bass/stick I would say.

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.

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.

Kind of focused, I guess.

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.

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

^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....

He's a great bass player, but he's a god at Chapman Stick

God of bass

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.

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!
