Edit:anyone famous for anything?
Yes, there are many members here that have their music available on iTunes and Google Play....some of them you've even heard of.
Who isn't on iTunes? It s not like they have a strict policy or anything, other than you don't get paid much.
There are guys in major label bands with hits you have probably heard though if that is what you were wondering. There are also house hold names (to bass players) on here, most of those cats have their own forum though.
Justin Meldal-Johnson, Gene Simmons, and Anthony Wellington are a few of the most famous members. As mentioned, though, there are quite a few more of us who are at least semi-famous.
tully kennedy is another
First: I am NOT trying to dis the OP. It is a legitimate question.
My band has several albums on iTunes, Google Play, CDBaby, and all the similar places. No one I know considers me famous. The bar for "famous" appears to be set a little higher than that.
I am famous among a very small group of people.
I also have an album on iTunes. And I'm the most famous southern metal drummer in central PA.
I'm famous and I can make you famous too... Send me your demo and $400 and I will have you on iTunes before you can say "Cha-ching!"... You'll be laughing all the way to the bank in no time! Sign up for my premier service (additional $800) and I will have a limo drive you to your next gig. No women to ride with you? No problem... throw in another $400 and I will place a craigslist modeling call and have a girl on both your arms. (Models must be returned timely to avoid additional charges). Roadies? Fans? Gold Records?... You need 'em I got 'em!

People are being way too technical ITT
It's pretty clear what the OP meant.
I know Brian Bromberg posts here on occasion. Really nice guy. I'm sure there are others...
Sorry, I couldn't resist...
Ed Friedland, Roy Vogt, others...
Jay Bentley from bad religion has engaged me in questions I had regarding an ampeg product. Knowledgable guy and very friendly!
I think that JimmyM was the bass player for Shanana, but not positive.
He plays for Bowzer from Sha Na Na.
Johnny April from Staind is another
The bassist for Filter posted a bunch in the old GK forum, I remember...
Old bassist. He is actually an actor too. He is also the voice of some chain, I want to say fast food.
I had to google why Geezer Butler wanted the guys autograph. I mean, that is an extremely high honour.
I'll have you know that i'm kind of a big deal in Folsom
I'm not on iTunes nor on Google play (whatever that is), but I'm famous in my own mind.
Nolly is on the Periphery, here.
Some guy named after a German city used to post on here and stir things up, I think his name was Jeff. I hear he's teaching bass out of Florida now...
Paul Warburton, has played with a slightly famous jazz pianist, and lead a jazz combo or two...
Fergie Fulton is a heavyweight player who weighs in here regularly.
Scott Thunes has Zappa'd a few TB electrons, me thinks.
John Goldsby does Double Deutsch, Jah Gute...
Anyone know if the following players are on here?
I'm a big fan of Brad Houser, and have come across a few old postings from him on TB...
