I'm not convinced many of the bass players quoted above are... Suzi being a notable exception 🙂

This is very true. Suzi was a huge influence on me but not in a bass playing sense ...

My eldest daughter is a Suzie, I usually spell it without the E :)

The band that got into music was Mott The Hoople and the bass player was Pete Overend Watts :D

Sir, there is a chasm of difference between hair farmers and men of quality and distinction, of which you are most certainly the latter.

I expect because although a superb and influential player he's not what you call visually appealing.

Norman "not visually appealing". Are you having a laugh? He looks a proper geezer. No b/s, doesn't care about image, just about playing good notes. How is that not something you'd want to aspire to?

Oh no, don’t get me wrong, he’s certainly one of my favourite bass players and most certainly proper geezer, I’m referring to the fact that people who do care about image may disregard him. NWR is someone I wholly aspire to.
