Yeah, Roger Glover is a top bassist, I still rate Andy Fraser from Free
Felix Pappalardi from Mountain was a fair player also

Oh Lord....there are just way too many phenomenal bass players out there to categorize just ONE as being  'best of the heap...'       Let's keep in mind too here gang...just because a given bass player can be fluid as water on the fretboard (and admittedly, on such thicker strings),  my feeling is;  much like overtly fluid guitarists, there is a very fine line between being fluid, and being overtly noodly and masturbatory.      A good bass player understands and appreciates the difference between the need to be melodic and fluid from the need to provide ample bottom and rhythm intensive structures.       For my money,  the bass players who best exhibit these skills would include (but are not limited to):

Geezer Butler
Geddy Lee
Greg Lake  (E.L.P)
Steve Harris
Cliff Burton
John Taylor (Duran Duran....yeh, I said it!!!  XP )
...any bass player who's worked with  Steely Dan...(for which, there have been many)
Ian Hill
Gene Simmons (he has more skill than most people would credit) I said...there are others...their names either escape me, or I can't remember what names of the bands they once they occur to me...I'll give 'em mention...
