Mike Kerr from Royal Blood is pretty amazing and Flea from Red Hot Chiili Peppers is phenomenal.

Jaco Pastorius

Victor Wooten

Les Claypool

 

Spent a lot of time at university listening to this guy: Billy Sheehan. 

 

Pure shred bass. Absurd. His fingers must be rock solid.

Geddy Lee

Stanley Clarke

Bernard Edwards

Charles Mingus

Jean-Jacques Burnel

John Entwhistle

Chris Squire

Tina Weymouth

Gail Anne Dorsey

Mick Karn

Paul Simonon - Terrible bass player, but looked brilliant. 

Edit - to add...Bruce Foxton

 

Sound and attitude are as important as technique – JJ had both.

- Norman Watt-Roy (Dury & Blockheads, Wilko Johnson)

- Steve Hanley (The Fall)

- Jah Wobble (PIL, solo/projects)

- Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads)

- Bootsy Collins (James Brown)

- Robbie Shakespeare (Black Uhuru)

- David McClymont (Orange Juice)

 

Edit: add Cait O'Riordan (Pogues) for same reasons as @Line-X with Simonon - not an exceptional bassist, but cool as fvck in a top quality band in which musical expertise wasn't at a premium...

Saw him in concert sometime around Niacin - think he was with the DT guy. He can certainly play.

How did I miss JJ from my list. The Stranglers were such an underrated band.

Not my favourite favourite, but a name as yet unmentioned worthy of mention, Nick Oliveri.
