    Anyone else a big fan? He's very underrated IMO. In fact, just look at this video. That's literally the ONLY PERSON on all of Youtube who can play Hook in the Mouth. That goes to show how hard it is.

    He's an awesome bassist and a super nice guy. He's in my top 3...

    I'm not sure that he's underrated though.

    wouldn't say he's underrated. he's held in pretty high regard when it comes to metal bassists. i've been digging on a lot of old megadeth lately and he's become a much bigger influence than when i first started listening to megadeth.

    I like his stuff. The bass-ic instructional DVD he did is pretty boss.

    Yep, fairly highly regarded, especially in the whole pick vs fingers nonsense.

    My Last Words - Ellefsons finest 5 minutes IMO.
