Correction: Inna -gadda-da-vida.

Also, as iconic basslines go, how about Tony Levin's efforts in "Sleepless" and "Thela Hun Ginjeet"?

Ultimate bass line for me: Jaco with Weather Report: A Remark You Made, and Teen Town

Tal is amazing! Iron Butterfly because it was the elephant in the room. As far as fusion goes, and maybe they were already called, but, Chameleon by Herbie should be there as well as Byrdland. Synth lines, yes, but they're often covered on bass.
