Music Radar ran an online poll over the past few weeks where they asked readers to vote for who they think is the best bass player of all time. They revealed the results earlier today and topping the list was Rush's Geddy Lee:

The Rush man has inspired thousands to pick up the bass guitar, and many of the other bassists in this rundown cite him as an influence. A leading frontman, songwriter and a remarkable bass talent, it's no surprise he remains perennially popular with you guys. Given the news that Canada's premier prog exports have now retired from touring lends this result real poignancy. A worthy winner.

Geddy Lee commented on being awarded the honor via a post on the official Rush Facebook page a short time ago:

"Wow...An incredible honour just to be included in a list of such profound Bass playing talent. Humbled and very appreciative. Thank you all so much"- Geddy
