Geddy Lee makes list of top 10 bass players

According to Counterparts forum member Moving Target, the latest issue of UK-published Bass Guitar Magazine (issue #26) contains the results of reader survey where the top 20 bassists were voted upon. Geddy Lee makes the cut at #9. Rounding out the top 10 are the following:

10. Mark King
9. Geddy Lee
8. Billy Sheehan
7. John Paul Jones
6. Bootsy Collins
5. Larry Graham
4. James Jamerson
3. Flea
2. Sir Macca
1. Jaco Pastorius

Not sure if I really agree with this list, but to its credit it includes all types of bass guitarists; jazz, funk, pop, rock, etc. If it were just rock bassists, Geddy probably would have scored higher. The list also seems to be a little skewed towards the funk players.
