    He has come up with some great creative metal bass lines. I liked his work with Testament, Quo Vadis, and Iced Earth. That said, I did not really for the newest incarnation of his live tone. A bit to clacky for my tastes

    true,the old-school sound from the 90's and 80's has changed, in a bad way

    His playing on Death's Individual Thought Patterns is awesome.

    I've adopted the name "Changing Weather" for the band projects I put together from the Dark Hall song.

    LOVE his work. There arent tons of bassists out there that I feel comfortable sahing are the top tier of talent on the planet. DiGeorgio is one I can throw in that tier no problem.

    Instead of all these "talent" shows on tv for pop and hiphop culture, Id love to get a show up where bands or individual artists compete in plahing each others' music. I cojld see him crushing the souls of a lot of pro bass players.

    Recently took a look at Steve's pedal board. He loves DOD 1979945_735155116535359_3042066410516117785_o.jpg

    Steve is amazing and I'm not even a big fretless fan. But, in recent years, he has gotten REALLY high in the mix and his tone is very clacky.
