Well, as we all know that Steve Harris is the best (thread closed) I would put these guys into the next best category:

Burton
Ellefson
DeMaio

agree,
though I don't really enjoy how he went into the background lyrics and bass wise.
I still like what he does, also might fit way better in the mix, but most of the more recent stuff doesn't really soak me in bass-wise as the early things did (for instance all that rush influenced "solo bass" stuff from the first album / majesty demos / etc.)

Mying can play circles, but playing circles ain't music.

De Maio 's the Best because he plays Sting of the Bumbleebee , William's Tale and all the best songs on the bass smile.gif

but he uses a bass with thinner strings and uses a pick... it's more like a guitar player. Harris is a True bass player! tongue.gif
