Suprised to see no Lee on this list

Hmm, tough, for playing Bruce or Wetton, for singing Lake or Sting.

For being a pompous ass, Sting by a mile

I'll vote Phil Lynott, not prog in any way, but there ya go

Tough choice indeed......for actual bass playing  Bruce , Wetton , Sting , and Lake .
For vocals....Lake, Bruce, Sting, Wetton.
Overall I think Bruce  and Sting are the most talented when it comes to writing, playing, and singing.

I went with JB.
As far as lead vox and bass players go, Mariusz Duda is the man.

Sting but is he prog? Soul Cages is a great album as are his first two. But like the other 3 a lot too.

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.

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)

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

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

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

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.

Greg Lake, for his magnificent voice.

^^I'm with my fellow countryman on thisBig smile
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.

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!!!
