I think it's bs that only known bassists get to have one. I want my Ask Milk forum dammit. Do i know anything about anything? Don't be ridiculous. Of course not. Have i been in famous bands? Yes...in my own fantasy world i have. I have hundreds of imaginary worldwide tours stories i bet you'd love to not read about. I don't know. People give too much importance to credentials. I've almost been around the block at least once. I've not been there, haven't done that and never bought any of the t-shirts. But so what? I still want to tell people how to do it. What gear or basses to get (basically if i'm getting it, don't), how to get my sh*t tone, how to play like me (basically pretend you're better than you are, fool them with a lot movement up and down the neck even if you could get that note somewhere closer, overabuse triplets so they think you can also pick pretty well. there's more but i'm not telling you all my valuable secrets until i have my own forum) Sometimes people could do with terrible advice from a true "original" (i prefer the term maverick, really..) such as myself. Or maybe such as YOU even.
