    Not that familiar with his music, but as a side note: We went to the same Elementry and Junior High School. I remember him as being the most quiet/shy seeming guy at school.
     
  3. Beck's bass player Justin Meldal-Johnsen is hip.

    nice story Gabu, he really seems like he was a very shy guy... now he´s groovy :D
     
  5. I think that Justin Meldal-Johnsen is a great player. Not too flashy or chop-driven, but he stays in the pocket and provides just the right support for Beck. And he impaled Beck with his bass onstage and DID NOT get fired!

    Not too flashy? Have you hear the Midnite Vultures stuff? On some of the tracks it seems like he's trying to cram as many notes in as possible. It works, though.
     
  7. I'm a loser baby ....

    So why don't you kill me.
     
  8. He is good but I like the real "old school" Beck ala Jeff.
