there's not much bass on the album the engineers turned it down to where you almost can't hear it at all. so Gj for being in defense of Jason but theres not really any bass on the album

i just hope nobody thought i was making fun of jason i was just laughing at the fact that you can barely hear the bass except for in one when it goes into the triplets on the open e

He did some amazing bass work with the band, it's too bad he got lost in the mix on that album. The rest of the band have said they wish they coudl remix that album. I wonder are they still game now that my "I only use a pick" is their bassist?

Eh? If that's in reference to Trujillo, you're very wrong.

That's because James and Lars are dicks. All three (main) Metallica bassists are/were sh*t hot.

Would that be the same person that played Battery and Whiplash with his fingers when auditioning?

Idiot.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

And is also an extremely talented slap bassist to boot. I personally rate him much higher than Flea in that department.


He is a great bassist and knows how to give a show: perfect for metallica.

BUT we can't say how good he is till we HEAR the new album...
his first contributions!

Apperently he is written a lot for it...

edit: not really hard to be better then flea is it?

The edit is true But the point still stands Obviously we can't say how good he is in Metallica until he writes stuff, but it's safe to say, looking back at his career, that he is a very, very talented man.

To get an idea of what he might contribute to the new Metallica, these from Suicidal Tendencies:

You Can't Bring Me Down
Accept My Sacrifice
Lovely

Infectious Grooves kicks ass. I was impressed when I realized that he was the bassist for Metallica as well.

Which Genesis CD?


Speaking of Genesis how come bass forum hasn't talked/never mentioned Mike Rutherford? He is a s h i t hot bassist aswell.

His bass work in the Genesis song "In The Cage" is some amazing bass playing.


As far as the Rob/Metallica thing goes he fits in there very well musically. He must be adding alot of funk and slap to Metallica's sonic pallette, which kinda sounds weird.

I agree. While I do prefer early Genesis, his work in "No reply at all" (Abacab) is one of the main reasons I picked up a bass.

I honestly can't imagine Metallica with a prominent slap bass sound.

I don't imagine that Zon being played with a pick would sound very good...at least not compared to the finger tone.
Nope, no sig here.

Are you talking about Genesis to Revelation? That was the debut album before Trespass.

Mike had that Rickenbacker double neck bass/12 string guitar he used oh so often back in the Gabriel days. I wonder if it was just a custom shop thing though because I've never seen them anywhere else beside videos of him playing it.
