Mark King - Level 42

I always liked the style of Mark King of Level 42 he gets such a great sound. On the other hand Chris Squire (just been watching a YES dvd) or Geddy Lee of Rush.

Yeah, I'm not really a fan of Level 42's Music, but he is a great bassist and very good at slap. He holds his bass quite high though- I can't play like that!
Agree with you on Chris Squire and Geddy Lee - have always admired good bass players who also sing
I would throw Steve Harris from Iron Maiden into the mix - he is a great bass player and plays with his 2 fingers only... even the fast triplets on 'Run to the Hills'
