    I know that John Paul Jones is a non-Pick player, but some of the BBC session recordings just REALLY sound like a big throaty bass played with a pick....

    I HATE the sound of a bass played with a pick. YUCK YUCK YUCK. I'm a guitar player and when I do play bass I use 3 fingers and NO Dang PICK!!!!
    Proper bass should NEVER be played with a pick!!!!!
    Hey, it's just my little hangup so nobody get your panties in a wad........

    I've had the pleasure of his friendship for over 30 years and being in a band with him more than once. The man is amazing on bass and uses a pick/finger hybrid system that gets a tone I've never heard elsewhere. It's his own invention and is something to hear.

    He's in Twin Lakes, WI and deserves to be known. Besides, he's catching up to me in age and if he doesn't make it soon, he and I will be sitting on the nursing home front porch telling stories to the young nurses about our musical conquests. :)
