I was just listening to a bootleg of Jane's Addiction at the 2002 Reading Festival, and I really like this guy's pick tone. Not surprising really, since he uses Aguilar amplifiers and Lakland basses (I think). Although when I saw them at Leeds he used a schweeeeeet J-bass. Jut wondered how highly you learned scholars of Bass-dom rate him. I think he's fitted into Jane's Addiction nicely.
