In no particular order, bassist who's playing has really inspired me:

pino
Bobby vega
Mike visceglia
Jerry Meehan
Randy hope Taylor
Stuart zender
Stanley Clarke
Flea
Steve Harris
James jamerson

Flea and jamerson have been my greatest inspirations over the years.
I don't really go out of my way to seek out or listen to good bass playing music, it's more a case of sometimes finding music that I love which happens to have some fantastic bass.
