    Underrated bass players

    10 pages in and no Graham Maby? One of the great melodic bassplayers with a crap-ton of groove to boot. Also, Colin Frickin' Moulding

    Underrated bass players

    I'm sure you're familiar with his "Redd Stripes" project? Where he added basslines to the White Stripes "White Blood Cells" album? Fantastic stuff that greatly improved that record.

    What's the biggest show you ever had tickets for, and didn't attend?

    Led Zeppelin. 1980 tour. Bonham died.:( I think I lost $20.

    Ive come to a conclusion

    Says the guy with a Tubescreamer HW, a pedal worth $40 - and priced 8 times that.

    How awesome was Blackfoot ??

    I believe they recorded at the Old Schoolhouse, Henry Weck's studio in Ann Arbor. (Henry was the drummer in Brownsville Station, BTW)

    Genisis going on tour.

    I think Mike is a fine guitarist - just fine - and he contributed some great acoustic work on albums alongside Hackett. But he's completely vanilla. Serviceable to the songs and nothing more. No personality, none of the quirkiness, none of the idiosyncratic ideas that Steve brought to the...

    Genisis going on tour.

    Genesis stopped being interesting when Steve Hackett decided to leave and Mike Rutherford (incorrectly) decided he was a better guitarist than a bassist.

    Ego Songs: Got Any?

    I've learned a bunch of Steely Dan songs, because I love them, and I find it an interesting challenge to create guitar-only arrangements for them. I don't get to play them out because one of my band partners loathes the Dan (it's one of his few flaws as a friend, so I let it slide)

    David Byrne on SNL

    Byrne's feet bother me less than when the Hobbit Lord tries to pull it off

    Hats Off To Neil Finn

    Loved Split Enz - particularly this song. But it drove me nuts sifting through all the Tim stuff to get to the Neil stuff. So I was super-pleased when Crowded House came along ...

    Missing Persons - Destination Unknown • TopPop

    Agree with all the praise so far. Just want to add that Warren C. was a monster who came up with really inventive, surprising guitar parts. (And Dale was hawt)

    10 Reasons Why "Octopus's Garden" is a Great Song

    So you're saying you like "Don't Pass Me By" better?

    Went to see Soul Asylum, but Local H obliterated them.

    A friend of mine (huge Local H fan) built a couple guitars a la Scott Lucas. Half of a P-bass pick-up under the E and A strings, routed to its own output jack. This "bass" output goes into an octave divider (Boss), rolled 100% wet. That goes into a bass amp. It takes some arranging to get...

    Wow, I found an 80s song with an amazing solo that I'd not heard before.

    Played on Flowers in the Dirt album and tour. Also on the follow-up, Off the Ground. Think he was gone after that.

    Need a Tech to Repair my Klon KTR.

    I needed to get in touch with Bill as well. Found this email in another thread: I sent him something this AM. It didn't bounce back - though he has yet to reply ...

    What is your favorite album/CD cover?

    So many great covers that I used to stare at, pick apart the meaning while listening to the albums. Most of my favorites had covers by Hipgnosis

    Marc Ford

    Sorry, that's my mistake. It's the original (double-length) CD to which I was referring.

    That song is on my 2-disc set.

    Funny song about hipster coffee shops

    I hate hipsters (and their ****in' avocado toast), so I thought this was great.
