    I understand that this is a bass related site.However,this being the miscellaneous section,I want to speak about a vocal legend-Bruce Dickinson.

    Ever since my tryst with Maiden began,I was completely blown away with his voice.His range,phrasing and control are amazing.Just listen to Hallowed be thy name,Powerslave,Flight of Icarus,the Crimson King(solo),Be Quick or be Dead etc.

    Other vocal favourites-King Diamond,Rob Halford,Ronnie James Dio,Tim Owens and Danny Cecati.

  3. Now you're either a bored Ed Fuqua or you're Linfield's alter ego and you're fed up with listnin' to Chet singin'? You really 18? Is this your chat-up pitch to Kat - hope she was impressed. Thanks for the laugh :D :D .

    Like I said elsewhere-
    1.I'm sorry.I'm new here.
    2.Double bassists will never know the joys of slapping/popping.

    Also Kat's taken.She has a boyfriend,she said.

    Nah,I'm into the older girls.
     
  5. 1. no messin'?
    2. oh yes we do! - having noted it all started with a db I have to admit not knowing nay modern players who use it outside of rockabilly - and this comment is going to get me a redder face than you when thye all pile in and give me a list
    3. shame
    4. the older girls plural - how many? well done! me - finished with my woman (singular) coz she couldn't help me with my life - Chet never did that one did he?

    Enough guys. :mad:

    'I'm Waitin' in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime,
    Reflectin' on my past life and it dosn't have much time,
    'cuz it's five o' clock when they take me to the gallows pole,
    The sands of time for me are running low.'

    What Kat Slater from Eastenders? :confused:

    Nah - it's not me - but anybody who uses the word 'tryst' has got to be takin' the P!!

    :rollno:

    Why is that?

    Although I do use a P.
     
  16. I want a tryst with a maiden. I guess that rules out Kat Slater.

    I have a fender P and Bruce played BG for 20yrs, me somewhat less. Guess we're jealous of your youth Ore. Bruce hasn't spotted the thread in off topic.

    BTW Bruce - any jazz on in Brighton June 7 & 8 while I'm down for a union conf.?

    Not as far as I know - although the Julian Arguelles Trio is at the Brighton Jazz club on 11 June with 2 US players as rhythm section - Michael Formanek on DB and Tom Rainey on drums! :)
     
  18. Ouch, the prospect of hearing the vocal legends of the Public and Commercial Services Union persuaded me I'd rather go home to my bass than stay for the whole week - rats - I'll have to get a copy of Powerslave in penance - although I may well find I like it and decamp to the dark side of my youth - or try to re-live it and be hip again. I might get it now out of curiosity seeing as half the dbers here seem to know the lyrics and Ironore gives ti the thumbs up.

    Saw Jullian A not so long ago in Alex Dankworth's drummerless trio with guitarist Mike Walker - he was excellent as were the rest.

    Thanks for the reply Bruce!
