In this months BP magazine, Bill Leigh wrote in his "Lowdown from the editor" of the bassist's pursuit of fame, or lack thereof. He expounds on how Paul Chambers, Joe Osborn, or James Jamerson probably never expected fame, and were probably "too focused on doing great work and bringing home the beans to contemplate their place on the obscurity - to - fame continuum". Yet, he moves on to say this: (Emphasis mine.) Could Bill Leigh be busting our chops? It seems to me that there's a slight dig here, and I must admit that there were a few TB members here that instantly sprang to mind upon reading this. Perhaps I read too much into it, but it seems that Bill was chastising those who would pursue "fame" through sites like TB are somehow less focused and less musical than the aforementioned bassists. Hmmm? Being that he writes for a living, he would understand the connotations of using the word "vociferous" - it's not necessarily a word used to imply a principled manner of speaking. Witness: According to Oxford American Dictionary - Methinks Bill is having a bit of fun at the expense of some of our more "famous" members. What do you think?
