Geddy Lee is a better bassist for my money.

But when it comes to accomplishments Paul is one of the top ten artists in rock history also the wealthiest musician in the world.

Geddy doesn't write songs.

Geddy has a horrible voice (imo)

Since this poll isn't a bass-specific poll, Ill go with Paul.

^^He certainly writes music for songs, the lyrics are by Neil Peart no denying that but Rush albums are created by all three of the members, and it was bass specific at the end of Fielding's post TB, you must have missed it.

I was trying to get at who's the better at playing the bass overall, which excluded writing ability, singing, etc.

Anyways, I'll go Geddy Lee.

I know he didn't write most of Rush's lyrics, and to some he might have a funny sounding voice, but he's the better bassists in my eyes. He blows away McCartney away as far as how skilled he is.

It just says they were listed as the best bassists...

I think the picture of Paul McCartney holding a GUITAR signifies that this is an overall poll.

Well, I didn't read Fielding's post before I posted my above comment, so I apologize.

But its confusing when you have Paul playing a guitar.

Paul is decent bass player. Geddy is one of the best bass players in the world however so it's really no contest.
