1) how many bassists have married or banged supermodels? 2) how many people have you EVER seen "air bass"? 3) why does rock n roll have a guitar solo in EVERY song but 1 in a 100 has a bass solo? 4) why no matter how many of these SUPER bassists that are interveiwed and mentioned on this site, not one are media noticed? (mtv,vh1) 5) why is every band always looking for a bassist? and dont say "your in it for the wrong reasons" im tired of that crap. everyone in a band wants that praise and adoration after they play. not to be ignored and considered irrelevant. ask anyone who gene simmons is? (i will garuntee they will say the singer form kiss) actually one question off the topic. how long does anyone here think it will take me to pick up lead guitar status with determination and lessons form a former good bassist and decent rythm guitar experiance? i watched VH1's top rock bands last night and they mentioned one bassist (jack bruce from cream and he was only mentioned by another bassist) and then every guitarist, singer and drummer in every band around that.
