No particular order but roughly chronological.
These are also people who I would regard as having been a big influence on my playing at some point, rather than who I think are the "Best bass players", whatever that means.

Geezer Butler
Lemmy (Hawkwind era)
Chris Squire
Geddy Lee
Paul Gardiner
Dave Pegg
Rick Kemp
Barry Adamson
Mark King
Tony Levin

that's a blast from the past. My chenistry teacher was a guitarist in Pilot or it's predecessor who quit and emigrated to Australia, just before they made it big with January.
