    Am I the only one here who likes this guy??

    I am kind of surprised that I have never heard anything mentioned in here about him. But I COULD be the only one here who thinks he's any good, I guess.

    I'm a big fan of The Violent Femmes and I like Brian's work. Yeah, I rarely see him mentioned anywhere.


    Gotta love "Blister in the Sun". :)
     
  5. I just started listening to some Violent Femmes, this guy is damn good! He pretty much leads the band.

    Just thought I'd give this a bump.
     
  6. I`m kinda sorta working on learning to play "Blister In the Sun".Great bass work in that song.Never really checked out much of their music but I will be changing that. :)

    Wow. Old thread revived!!:)

    I saw the Femmes live a few years ago when they were in Fargo, and Brian was totally unbelievable.

    I was really surprised that I have never seen any mention of him on here before.
