I know this won't be very popular around here, but.....
I don't judge good music or a good band by the gear, the lead singer's hair, or what makes the bass notes. If the music/band is good, it's good. If it stinks, it stinks. There have been plenty of good songs recorded with synth bass lines. Sure, I love the traditional stuff too. But I try to judgee with my ears as much as possible. So, my question is was the band with the keyboard bass player any good?
