    ...oy vey.

    You can almost hear the "splat" of him hitting the wall, looking for a way around it.

    I should drop him a line, see what's up.

    I wonder if he uses a pick.

    [Disclaimer - As a fellow opiniated SOB, I always liked Dann. Had to take the shot before someone else got to it first though. :) ]

    Let's start a pool to see which instrument he switches to next. My money's on fretless trumpet. BTW, I too, am one of the few guys that likes Dann.

    You and everyone else that wasn't here at the time...ie me. I sorta asked around about that too. Seems that what happened was when "the amazing Jeff Berlin" decided to leave as a TB pro, he stopped by the Batcave to pick up his trusty sidekick, former bassist Dann Glenn (who at that time just went by bassist Dann Glenn), and then they sped on over to TB central, or wherever they keep their PC's, and deleted every single thread from their forums. That's how I understand it.

    Geez.

    I could never see any of our current pros doing anything like that. I've only really encountered Steve Lawson and Mike Dimin - but they're really great guys, very helpful, and they know what they're doing - yet don't seem to have the inflated ego that can go along with that.

    Methinks there was some sort of ego trip there with Jeff & Dann?

    On a side note - I think I see an error on Dann's website. There he refers to Berlin as "the amazing Jeff Berlin." However, on Jeff Berlin's website he is clearly referred to as "a legend of the electric bass" with subtitle of "the finest electric bass soloist in the world."

    Perhaps "the amazing" is his old title and Dann just wasn't made aware of the title change. Should I email the webmaster...or maybe Jeff Berlin IS the webmaster. Hmmm...

    I did get involved in pointless arguments with both Jeff Berlin and Dann Glenn. They were (possibly still are) very outspoken and seem to like sparking...ahem ..debate. When Basslinks.nl started up I actually patched it up with Dann. I admire Dann's loyalty to his friend. Also he has been a source of inspiration to younger players during his stint at basslinks. RE the born again guitarist thang, I'll end with one sentence.

    There's no such thing as bad press.
     
  17. Well, I haven't heard Dann on the geeter, but if he plays it as well as he does the bass, he'll do just fine. Nothing wrong with playing more than one instrument (Richard Bona comes to mind), and the last time I checked, the U.S. of A. was still a free country.

    So am I. He has always been a great guy with me. He has given me lots of advice on many topics, and he has always been kind to me. He even sent me a batch of his CDs and an autographed poster when I asked him if I could get his CDs somewhere (he sent them to me personally because they were out of print at the time). I have heard both sides of the arguements and the past from these boards, and I am not going to take sides.

    and like CS said, I am one of those youngsters on Basslinks whom he has influenced, greatly.

    That said, I am sure, as XG said, he will still be one helluva musician, be it on guitar, bass, or keyboard.

    Music is music, no matter what instrument it comes from. And from what I have heard of his bass work and keyboard work, his music is pretty friggin good!

    All of the posts were deleted. Before Dann left we patched things up. I hope he's doing well.
