Ahead of the launch of MusicRadar's Bass Expo (27-28 February), we're pleased to say that the nominations are closed and voting is now open for The Greatest Bass Player Of All Time poll, brought to you in association with Orange Amps.

Earlier this month we asked you to nominate your favourite bass players and you responded in your droves. Unsurprisingly, Rush's Geddy Lee received more than a few nods, as did The Who's John Entwistle, Motown legend James Jamerson, fretless theatrical Jaco Pastorius and Chris Squire of Yes-fame.

Now we've narrowed the nominations down to a list of 60 contenders and we want your help in deciding the champion.

The results will be unveiled during MusicRadar's forthcoming Bass Expo - an online bass extravaganza running 27-28 February, featuring exclusive interviews with world-conquering bassists, high quality product demos, give-aways and expert tutorials.

How to vote

It's easy. Here's the final list (presented in alphabetical order by first name) so just find your favourite player, mark the box next to their name, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click 'vote'. That's it!
