    Are those my only options?

    I pick 'NO'.

    FiElDy was left out?
  7. Hey, give the maggot a break guys. At least he knows that the comparative of "good" is "better" and not "best". It must be the superior quality of Australian education as compared to that in the US. I'm with BurningSkies: I vote "no" also.

  8. I suspect it's only Deja Vu

    Dude, I don't know about it. It's tough but im gonna say Les because hes just nuts man. You can't really compare the two of them. They both have very different technique and know how to rip the bass. But I love what primus and all Les claypool bands produce its just...wacky you could say. And they both funk it out to the max so they are both wicked. Yeah cool yes

    Les appeals to the big geek in me. He's the man.

  11. You made me spit out a considerable amount of soda with laughter, Matt...

  16. I'd have to say flea because he was one of the reasons i started bass, but they're both really good at what they do, as said above.

    On this board, the politically correct answer is "Jaco".
