I love Bootsy Collins so much I named my daughter after him. The great man himself tweeted her mum a fortnight ago on my little 'un's birthday to wish her all the best, then tweeted her mum again ten minutes later to offer her a Bootsy goody bag. What a guy.

This has gotta be the meanest slice of funk the cat's ever laid down:

As for rock you can't beat the late Mr Entwhistle:

Or Flea:

As for funk I agree with Mr Fox; Bootsy is a God but there was also the late great Bernard Edwards:

The best bass line is clearly Give it Away by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mr_uHJPUlO8

Though special consideration has to be given to Taxman by George Harrison, so good it was used twice by the Jam on "Dreams of Children" and their second no 1 "Start". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdSqpT6gfDU

Start - good call Monty, forgot all about Mr Foxton.

Unless I have missed it this could also be a contender -

I have shaken these very hands as a youth, as perhaps have other boarders. Bruce was staying at the same hotel on George square during GLASCAC one year. So naturally you can't help but shout "BRUCE FOXTON" and start gibbering about the Jam. He seemed quite pleased, as it goes.

Sadly, none of his musical talent rubbed off on me. That's why I play the drums.
