    I saw this on The Bass Guitar page on facebook today while discussing the Duff signature Fender Bass. This persons response absolutely got me fuming. I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion but to call Duff an awful bass player is just flat out wrong.

    Typical troll. Don't let him upset you.
    BTW, I don't think Duff is a genius or even great, but I would never say he is awfull. Just a very good rock basist.

    I'm in no position to criticize any bassist but that's what I'm saying. He's been doing it for years and has fit the bands he's played with well.

    How can an opinion be wrong? A belief can be wrong. An assertion can be wrong. You can't quantify an opinion.

    Duff is playing to tens of thousands of people every time he steps on stage.

    This guy plays to the Maxim posters hanging on the walls of his bedroom.

    I know who I'd rather be.

    Duff is a fine rock bassist. No doubt this guy thinks Michael Anthony is a hack, too.

    to which the only appropriate response is: how many hit songs have you played on?

    Plays should be in quotes, if that's what they're calling 'it', these days...

    As a general rule, internet trolls have awful opinions. That's their job.

    Probably the same type of guy that would post "The Beatles suck" on a post about them.

    An opinion can absolutely be wrong...this is a perfect example of that. Here's another...it's my opinion that the Cleveland Browns are a great football team.
