Ok, I have heard that he is a good bassist, but I haven't actually ever heard anything he plays that I can't. Why is he being compared on the same level as Entwistle, Lee, and Claypool.

Don't get mad at me, I just would like to know why so many bassists think he is amazing.

Excuse me, compared to?

Pete "Lightning" Wentz is better than if Jaco Pastorius had a bastard child... with himself.

I didn't even know there were people who considered him good...
I've heard worse bass playing than Wentz', but still, he's nothing special imo.

Ah, it should be Pete Wentz month every month

Quote by Gibsocam
that is just saying "Pete Wentz is so great, he doesn't have to actually be good at bass"


I think there is one thing, that you are complete failing to grasp about "Lighting" Wentz, but it's best if you work it out

Well since everyone demanded they be allowed to make a bassist of the month thread and then didn't bother, since then every month has been Pete Wentz month. But I'm not going to turn this thread into a platform to complain about the way this place is run...surely?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

u know what i think...

i think someone is playing back stage...

he has 1 knob on his bass (I played one.... it sucked)

he is an friggin emo!
w/o bass n drums, there wouldn't really be rock music.

Schecter is pronounced 'Shek-ter', right? I don't want to walk in and say, "Hey, can I try out that Sketcher?" and have the helper reply with "Wtf, we don't sell shoes!"

Just thought I'd through this out there but F.O.B isn't really "emo". Emo's kinda loosely thrown around term now a days.

And who says a bassist in a "emo" band can't be good?

HAHA your just being a cry baby because you do not have even an infinitesimal amount of skill that Pete Wentz has... truly no one can compare to such a great bassist.
