    The "please can we play a song I wrote" never works. Those damn guitarists always go 'dude, it's just not our style' when there's more than 5 notes in the bass line.

    Anybody else notice he's using a 6-string in those pics? I know there are 6 string basses, but it seems like it would be more appropriate to use a 4 in the joke... anyway, it is funny :)
  4. I actually posted on their website about the 6 string...the image their illustrator used had a 6 string in it...so they knew what they were doing...other than that its a funny article
  5. the "wait outside the motel 6 room"....hahaa

    Hahaha sigh.
    That hurts just a little.

    Janice Dream will never really get out. Except on bass solo albums, and only we will listen to that. Sigh.

    I do all of those bar get food, and I no longer wait outside for the drummer, cause he stupidly brings his girlfriend on tour, so no action for him.....

    And I really do talk about side projects with him onstage!!

    When I talk to the drummer it's usually to arrange to drop into the most screwed-up version we can conjure of whatever it is we're supposed to be playing, to mess up whoever's soloing.
