Can you pick the bassist from a band picture?

  1. Shopping for some old cds, I found a band picture of Bad Co. members. I was thinking the average person could probably pick out their positions based on their look. Lead singer a little more flash, drummer tank top to move arms around better, guitar player dressed good but not as out there as the lead singer, and bassist, cool and casual. Picture used without permission but I'm sure they have a sense of humor, and hey, free advertising. Post'em if you got'em.

    Love Boz's hat. Why do some drummer's dress like 70's Tennis players? You know headbands, wristbands, tank tops , tape on their fingers LOL.

    Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke are very nice guys, BTW. I went to see them once on invite from a friend who used to tech for Mick, and Simon plows through this door, hits me with it, and was extremely apologetic, which I thought was very nice for a rock star ;)

    Box is just relaxed because being in Bad Co. is easier than being in King Crimson, just by a tiny bit

    Who are these guys supposed to be? The dude in the middle bears a resemblance to Robert Trujillo but the other dudes, no clue...

    Hmmm. Never heard of them, but okay... Checking them out, and this is too funny. A bit of Spinaltap undertones going on here...

    "Nathan Explosion" sure looks like a cartoon version of Robert Trujillo...

    Love that pic of Glover with his Ric... everything about him just screams "rock & roll".

    Don't you mean the 'Sexy' one.

    Except in the case of Murderface.
  16. Pick the bass player? Yeah, he's in the back! Good thing Cliff is tall, or the rest of the band short.

    Atlanta Rhythm Section: those guys all looked like bass players.

    I like what singer Rodney Justo said about Goddard: "Yes, at one time he was ‘that big fat guy that played bass,’ but once he started playing, he wasn’t fat. He was a giant.”
