Love him or hate him, you have to respect what Nikki has accomplished. IMHO, he is extremely talented. I agree with Dannoman completely. I happen to love the Crue. I saw them recently and was blown away. (For the record, I'm 42 and not a newbie) People have to realize that not everyone can be Jaco or Wooten, nor does everyone want to be. Nikki found his niche and has made the most of it, and he has the fame and fortune to prove it.
