With the passing of Yes bassist Chris Aquire over the weekend from Leukemia, Rush playing what could be possibly be theirlast performance at the Prudential Center, and Sir Paul McCartney rocking the Wells Fargo Center on Father’s Day, I figured now is a great time for us to talk about some of the greatest bassists to ever live. Here's what I came up with the help of NJ 101.5 listeners, in no particular order. Here's Trev's Top 10 list of great bass players.
