I don't like talking to other bass players at shows for the most part. The ones I enjoyed talking to were the ones also going to be onstage that night. I see a pattern here.... Every other time I've talked to bass players whether drunk or sober it just turns into a painful conversation for me. The guy I talked to last night might have been OK if he was sober and wasn't trying to hit on my wife. To be fair he didn't know but she still had to go to some effort to get away from him and then he turns his attention to me. I was nice to him though since he wasn't being a huge jerk and he did compliment my playing. I would rather he didn't talk to me though. This has happened many times in the past too. Either it's the booze or these guys are hacks with nothing better to do because when I talk bassists in established bands they are great to talk to. Can't be any worse than a drunken hack guitarist trying to tell me I need to play a fender.
