best-bass-playerAccording to NEXTers as told to me (Chris Bro) via a rather unscientific poll on Facebook and Twitter. We’ve all ready voted on the best singer.

I think they did a pretty good job.

I asked for their 3 favorite rock bass players. We received almost 50 responses. Thank you NEXTers for your thoughtfulness.
