"Best" is in the moment when you talk rock music, or experiencing a rock music concert or performance.
So the "best" bass player is the one who is bringing it live and in the moment.
Because that's all that matters.

OK. I'm in.
McCartney. Glad to see he made the tread if only for the Beatles stuff alone..
Berry Oakley. Style and Attitude.
Phil Lesh. More because of what he did in 60,s/early 70's with albums like Anthem of The Sun
Brian Wilson. He did some cutting edge stuff that influenced the Beatles
Jack Casady. Hey. Nobody can play bass and move their eyebrows like that. Nobody.
