    JPJ. He is the most talented bassist out of all of them, and he is a great keyboardist.(Listen to No Quarter)

    Geddy Lee

    Geezer Butler- his riffs were great, and fit black sabbath's atmospheric music.

    Steve Harris

    Lemmy- I like his singing better than his bass skills. he's average.

  • Steve Harris





  • Based on my view of their talent, not my band preferences:

    1. Steve Harris

    2. Geezer

    3.JP Jones

    4. Geddy
