Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

Death From Above wouldn't have been the same without JFK.


Agreed. Although I'm not a fan of DFA, drum and vocals is probably slightly less engaging than.

Though, for bands that have guitars are well, Primus. In half the songs, it is the bass and the drums carrying the riffs, with guitars being for extra flourishes and solos.

Chris Wolstenholme of Muse and Justin Chancellor of Tool are the two bassists I see as having the most crucial basslines in the general majority of their songs.

Afew of there songs would simply have near silence without their basslines playing.

i agree with Justin Chancellor and Chris Wolstenholme.

Your first mistake was getting a Chinese lady to cut your hair.

Your second mistake was getting someone who doesn't speak English to cut your hair.

Your third mistake was listening to your dicklock parents.

But Tim Commerford's not my favorite bassist. I, at least, was being totally objective. A hooty-snooty me.

He's NOT turned up in RATM!? I'm gonna have to disagree with that.

Though that doesn't change that this is a pointless thread.

seems like most bands would have been in trouble minus a member, but i'm going to have to go with Alex Webster - Cannibal Corpse as well as both of Athiest's bassists (although seeing as they lost one, i guess they could keep going)
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.
