The fact that the picture was taken in a hotel just adds to the, ummm, well, you know.




Rock Star feel.
Yeah, that's it.

We have separate accounts, so that wouldnt work.

Think I have a buyer for one of the Basses I'm selling. I should know for sure within the hour.

Sounds like you all had a good Christmas and a few of you got some really cool gifts as well.

Tat, keep us updated on your dad. Hope the surgery tomorrow goes well.

Of course, the highlight of the holiday for me was getting to hang out with my two bff's (as my daughter would say). We had a blast, and I didn't even feel like I was gonna die the next day, lol. (It would have been worth it even if I did, though.) Got to play some really awesome basses, and I got to go to Howl at the Moon for my first time, which was really cool.

JaamE, it would have been great if you could have joined us - maybe next time.

Thanks Jim, etoncrow, Drummer, BassGen on the comments on the pic FM posted. Etoncrow, the matching bass/ outfit was all FM's doing. That girl has some mad fashion skills!

We weren't exactly angels the whole time, but here is the only pic I have appropriate enough to post, lol...

Between the Thumpketeer pic and the latest one..I seem to have developed an issue somewhere.

BG, I hope you have a buyer! I've listed the JBL cabinet for sale. Love the tone, just not the weight.

The Aerodyne has been sold. It was really pretty but I just didn't use it.

Your Aerodyne was flat out beautiful, but You've got to keep what gets used.

Yup. Unfortunately cash in my jeans is more important than surplus gear in my basement.

Remember the Govt Mule performance in "Deepest End" where George Porter, Jr, Dave Schools and Jason Newsted all played bass on the song "Thorazine Shuffle"? Well, they can't hold a candle against these three for simultaneously demonstrating style, beauty and grace; what a trio!!!!

well, I like Gov't Mule but this is more like the biological reaction I had at 12 years old seeing the Supremes doing this:

btw, that's the great James Jamerson on bass in the background on top of those risers, and I had the biggest crush on Mary Wilson on the left.

Okay, I'm going to come right out and say it.

This pic is awesome. You gals are totally HAWT and you rock it. Maybe one of the best pictures ever on TB. Don't know how I'll even go to sleep tonight! Well, at least I know I'll have sweet dream anyway.

Respect for the CWB's. Lovely ladies, no doubt about that. Musical talent, also no doubt.

Love it. I'd like to say I'd love to meet all of you but I don't think I've got the stamina to withstand all three of you at once.....

Keep rockin' on. You gals are the best!!!!!
