    theres a little round red sticker on Mike Watt's (the minutemen, the stooges) bass and his lower cab. I cant seem 2 figure out who's face it is. One of ya'll r probably gonna tell me itz Jaco and I'm gonna feel like an idiot. Either way I'd like 2 know, thanx.:help:

    It's a pic of d.Boon with the caption "punk is whatever we made it to be." No surprise that Flea flies this sticker since "Blood Sugar. . ." is dedicated to Watt.

    whoa did you edit the question that you asked or did i just not read it right? :confused:

    I swear you where asking who the guy with the bass was not who was on the sticker.

    i guess i need to not stay up so late :)

    I saw Watt about a month ago and the 'stache was back - but he's been to Europe and back since then...
  9. A friend at work grew up in Pedro, and he kinda knew Watt from around the neighborhood. Long story short, I was fortunate enough to get to meet Watt and throw back a few drinks w/ him. Its REALLY cool when your heros are everything you expect them to be. He was the most real, down to earth person I had ever met.

    And he can drink!

    When I met Mike in Memphis. It was like we had known each other for years. He's a Real person, not one of those rock star guys who flex their ego and fame. I'm glad to know someone I look up to is that easy going. He's inspiring on an off the stage.
    Where can I get one of those D.Boone stickers?
