  2. He's a very melodic bassist with great ideas (a sonwriter too, thanks to him they had "No Rain")

    I love playing the bass line to No Rain, and its actually been a big influence on my playing style.

    Im trying to check out more of their stuff.

    Its all incredibly groovy.

    Peace

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I can certainly understand being put off my anything that gets that much airplay. Still, the rest of that CD is fantastic, in my book.

    I always dug the bass playing on that CD. Believe it or not, I was never a fan of Soup.
