    Peter Cetera - Chicago

    Yeah, they were a rock band once upon a time!

    Chicago Transit Authority is a truly great album with great bass lines and singing.

    The OP could win the bet with that one alone. Mark King counts as 10 bass players easily. :-)

    I put Peter Cetera at the top of my list before I saw your post. I always enjoyed his bass playing and was very pleased when Bass Player magaine did a cover story about him a few years ago. I had though everyone (including Peter Cetera himself) had forgotten what a creative player he was.

    I almost said Colin Moulding in my list, but I couldn't think of his name!

    You know, I feel really stupid, because when I said "Greg Lake", I thought of both ELP AND King Crimson... I have no idea how I forgot BOTH of these guys... and to think I just ordered "Larks Tongues In Aspic", "Starless And Bible Black" and "Red" from amazon.com yesterday.... Sheesh! John Wetton had one of the coolest distorted, grindy bass tones I've ever heard. Boz Burrell is of course much better known as the non-singing bassist for Bad Company, but I did know he sang on a couple of Crimson albums (or was it just "Islands"?).
