    Fieldy seriously isn't the worst Bass player in the world. He definatley isnt the best, but not the worst. I think you people enjoy ripping on him for his Clothing and "Thug" style. He wears baggy pants, who cares? Sure he tunes his bass down so low you cant even tell he's there. But sometimes he can actullay lay down a nice groove. He has gotten much better, ever heard anything off of Issues? That album is filled with some really nice lines, some stuff off of Life Is Peachy is cool. Listen to "Porno Creep" for some nice Fiedly Bass. Don't just jump onto the "Fieldy Hating" bandwagon without hearing some of his stuff. If you still wanna argue I could tell you some other songs with nice Fieldy bass.

    Peace love and unity...........

    nah, he sucks...

    i have seen all i had to see,
    i have heard everything (including korn b-sides and LAPD and all that crap)
    i have read some of his interviews (AWFUL stuff)

    he doesnt even says hes a bassist or practice...
    his tone sucks bad (cant even be called "bass tone")
    his live performance is worse than in the studio *surprise!* (seen some live videos and also some review here on talkbass by caracas)

    porno creep isnt that good... is just some tiny bassline over and over... the good thing about it is just that he has a standard bass tone...

    so i dont like it, you like it... big deal, im not forcing you to nothing.

    Ive heard every KoRn song thats on an album, and numerous b-sides. After hearing all those songs, I think I can truely say that people here are NOT ripping on them by his appearance, hes just a horrible bass "player."

    I just think all of his basses should go to young kids beginning to play bass.

    There was an interview in a German guitar mag where he set some things straight he allegedly said in earlier interviews.

    He's not my favorite player, but IMO his sound and playing fits well in the KoRn sound. I like Korn.
     
  10. I think he is such a second drummer, but on a bass instead of a drum. I think that his stuff fit well with the kind of band that Korn is...Also, he makes the song sounds more powerful to me

    But i agree that he is not a king of bass. He is not my favorite bass player at all, but I like what he does anyway. Maybe it's because I am a Korn fan...
     
  11. He probably makes more money than all of us combined anyway, so he can afford to suck if he wants.

    It would be impossible to be as bad as people here make Fieldy out to be. He would have to literally play his bass with his ass. :D I think his comments make it worse.

    Ever heard ball tongue? The bass is simple but really fits the song well.

    I thought he was a schmuck on MTV "Cribs", then I saw him "play"...he seems like a frustated drummer. Take your bass, dial in your favorite tone, then turn your knobs the exact opposite direction...instant Fieldy! But I digress...its his schtick so God love him. I'm done.

    theres already 2 other threads on Fieldy saying pretty much the same exact things as this one is. So Im closing this one. Theres no need for 3 threads on the same guy.
