I am generally open to almost any type of musical expression, whether it is something I would normally like or not. I will give anything a shot before judging it. That said, I will never ever get into a rock/funk/soul/pop band with no bass player. The Doors = never. The Black Keys = don't need it. A buddy of mine invited me to go see Jucifer a while back and I skipped it when I realized that they were a two piece. I'm not pooping on the importance of the talent in these bands, but there is so much amazing music out there... I can't see any reason to waste my valuable time on bands who don't either don't utilize bass or bass players.
