    Hey guys lets just chill out man! I will buy you all a drink and we can discuss music theory! I didnt mean to tick anyone off at me man i just was explaining my views and some peopel started name calling and childich slams at my grammer(wich does suck iam sure) But hey iam a bass player not a english major! And if it takes me going up to my attic to dig out old mags of me playing then i will to proove to anyone that doesnt believe that ive played in a fairly large pro-band! And as for as discussin music theory then bring it on id be glad to teach you a few things! But over all i just want to say iam sorry to anyone that i made angry! There is no need to to get so angry when you post a thread wanting to know what people think of a certain bass player and then not getting the answers you want! I guess it just makes me very angry to see a band like the offspring make it so big when there is other bands and musicians that have worked so much harder to get there and have recived nothing in return! So hey guys go have a beer on me! Just bill me!
     
  2. OK, so <b>when</b> are you buying us beer?:p

    I posted in the offspring thead and didn't act like a "but". I however don't feel you have to apolgise for anything. You were expressing your point of view. It did get a little petty in their, but we are not little boys now are we ;)

    The main problem was that your posts were sometimes confusing to read, so some people misunderstood what you were trying to say. I got what you were saying. You felt that the offspring were crap musicians, but that rock music was just as valid as jazz and classical. Please correct me if I interpreted your posts wrong.

    no apologies needed for that one, i don't think. it was a valid thread that simply blazed a bit - a fairly common occurrence 'round these parts :)
    i don't drink eric man, but a cigar followed by a rollicking bass solo would go down smashingly !

    hey eric, What band did you play for? If you feel weird about bangin your drum here e-mail me. I'd be interested to hear from a fellow Warwick player (Well sort of, I sold my Thumb to buy my Alembic) But it was groovy while it lasted. I will own a Thumb again. It was Growly :}
     
  10. yeah an apoligy wasn't really nessecary but at least you have the balls to say there are no hard feelings.

    Peace

    I was in a band called 7-white for a few years! We got signed and made a couple of cds. You arent going to be able to buy them because it was before the whole amazon thing! Man we could have used that. But i could send ya one if ya want. I have a corvette-pro-line from the early 90s. And generally i get mad when someone gets rid of there warick but i think you made a good choice there! Id like to see a pic of the alembic!

    How about you e-mail me because iam not sure how to do that! Never did it! And amn what a killer alembic!
     
  14. Yeah, I went a little off my rocker in that thread... I hate it when people try and tell me that I should listen to something else(It's oppression, I tells ya!), and I got the wrong end of the stick it seems, blah blah blah. I'll try and keep it civilised in future.

    Groove, you made a damn good trade IMO. My hatred for Warwick basses is well known. It's comparable to Munji's hate of Ibanez(which I love...go figure). It's spooky when a Thumb only costs 20% of your Alembic...:eek:
