    Hey guys,

    Slipknotz again,

    I'm bored so I was wondering what celebrities (like actors) would play bass.
    I personally think that these people would play bass:

    1. Johnny Depp
    2. George Clooney
    3. Catherine Zeta Jones
    4. Jack Black
    5. Fieldy! hahaha

    that was a good joke

    Johnny Depp does play bass, as well as Keanu Reeves.

    I'd say Steve Buscemi would be a bassist. He's always playing supporting roles, sometimes uncredited... but he's often the most memorable character.

    Let's put it in a Soprano's context:

    Christopher..............guitars, always on the front lip of the stage:hyper:

    Paulie..............Drums, lots of anger issues he can work out behind a kit::mad:

    Silvio..............Bass, solid, dependable, and HARD!!:bassist:

    I think Howard Stern might make an interesting bassist/ lead singer. He's outspoken but he's tall , kinda lanky and dorky lookin.The bass might make a good fit for him !?

    Michael Richards (Cosmo Kramer)

    Edit: On the other hand, he might be a bit nervous to hold down a groove.

    I believe that Jack Blacks least favorite instrument is bass. In Tenacious D, I thought he refused to have a bass player? And in the movie School of Rock, the bass got no solo or credit or anything...

    How about christopher walken?

    I bet he could lay down a funky bass line that doesnt sound/feel like your being stabbed in the face with a soldering iron.

    Tarentino wouldnt even play the bass. He would have someone else play it, say it sounds good, put his name on it, and watch it sell like crazy.

    So... when you see an album that says "featuring Quinton Tarentino", dont fall for it.

    Tarentino is a total guitar player and he'd steal all his licks from foreign guitarists.

    Laurence Fishburne would make a kick ass bass player--an upright one as well as guitar. Bill Murray would be cool too, but he might look more like a keys kinda guy.
