Late The Who star John Entwistle has topped a new online poll to find the best bassist.
The rocker, who died in 2002, beat out Red Hot Chili Peppers star Flea and Sir Paul MCCartney in the Rolling Stone readers survey.
In naming Entwistle the top man, the publication's editors state, "His solo on My Generation is probably the most famous bass solo in rock history.
"The Who have carried on since his sudden death in 2002, but their music has lacked Entwistle's thunder and been considerably weaker as a result."
Also making the top five: Rush's Geddy Lee and Les Claypool from Primus.

You have a valid point Douglas - but McCartney's playing is also composition based on the melody of the songs. Not to mention singing at the same time. He may not set the fret-board alight but as a musician and composer- he is probably the best Bassist/Composer/Singer. Ask any decent Bassist!
