    Which bassists do you think could kick someone's ass and hand it to them in a bar fight? I think Lemmy is one not to tangle with, for the sheer brutality he could use, and I bet also that Jaco could have pulled some rabbit punches and quick uppercuts and put somebody on their butt. Maybe though, Sting could wax someone. He's gotta be bad, he's named after a wrestler.
  2. Tim Bob from Rage Against The Machine. He fought off a few security guards at the MTV music awards.
  3. Jaco lost the last fight He was in

    Jaco was fighting a purported martial arts expert, one on one... Something you never want to do when you're inebriated. Also, Jaco weighed like 98 lbs... Lemmy??? His chest is as big as my wrist.

    My money would be on a guy with a little background... say either of our resident pros. Dann is a Vietnam era vet, Jeff has a longtime interest in boxing...

    If you got a problem with it... meet me out by the bike rack after school!

  10. How about Bob Babbitt!

    He's a big guy and I think he was actually a pro wrestler at one point.
  11. Chris Squire's pretty big too, isn't he?

    Yeah Squire is big, but he look like the kind of guy you go up to and start poking him in the chest and face with your finger and he'd start giggling out of nervousness and then fall backwards. But then again, you could get choke slammed by him.

    Michael Anthony might could kick someone's ass if he had to.
  13. Sting got his knick name from a sweater her always wore, not to tough if you ask me.
