this is a tough one... Jesus... I simply love 'em both but it's just too easy to say i like/don't like the both of them... Damn think, think, think... Yeah i think Billy is BETTER as an overall bass-player, but i PREFER John, his rythmic playing has much more heart (and i'm not refering to the band don't wrote a song that paul couldn't play :lol: ) and it fits perfectly to the songs...

So my vote has to go to Billy, since the question is "who's best..."

EDIT: I just realized that the question is not "who's best" but actually is a "vs." :oops: ! Ok, i vote for John

Surely much better than Compression.
He got his vocals lot better on CT.

They are both talented players...Billy is more of a guitarist though.
Juan's work on Frances the Mute is amazing...
Gotta go with the team player.

i voted jonny purely because he's more versatile. people hear billy playing tap'ons and all that rubbish and they get blinded by the glamour.
in all honesty both of these players have built there reputations on playing LEAD GUITAR on the bass............this is'nt what makes a BASS player. i'm pleased that jonny has moved on to fretless and is playing with the mars volta because it's an enviroment where he can prove his worth as a BASS PLAYER........and that he's a much better player than billy the bling.
