    nikolai fraiture from the strokes. he has really impressed and inspired me. if you listen to their album "is this it", you will find that his basslines are very complimentary to the rest of the band. he is a rather simple player, but his parts don't just mirror the guitar with root notes, he really adds to the songs. and his bassline on the title track is extremely catchy. so i suggest you give him a listen, you might like what you hear :)

    He's alright. You'd think a guy like that would try to be emulating Paul McCartney. I guess you can't judge a book by its cover.

    I dig his playing. Though he still doesn't look very comfortable up on stage.

    I think its the site and bass that makes him feel obliged to be so robotic.
