    Listened to that yesterday. Listened to a few of their other songs as well. I quite like this band.

    So, you get Geddy Lee to play on your album, and what do you do? You ask him to play a basic straight 8th-note bassline.

    Makes perfect sense.

    It fits with the music. That's what matters I think.

    Sounds like pretty much every indie band. As for Geddy, well he was guest, just like you hire another famous bass player for your project, he acts like a session player.

    I'm not blaming Geddy for playing what he did. He did his job. But it seems that for a band and their producer to be so excited for what Geddy could contribute to the track, they really missed the opportunity to let Geddy contribute to the track.

    If I'm going to get Geddy Lee on my album, I'm going to write a song that showcase him. This is the equivalent of getting Jeff Beck and then having him strumming G C and D. Maybe that's exactly what Geddy wanted to do though, who knows.

    I hate "social" cameos. I mean, here in Spain's (really endogamic) "frat mentality" rock establishment it's VERY frequent, yet it's 99% made for the sake of "notable name contribution" than really ever adding anything to any song. Talent is rare in Spanish rock music.
