    If you had an hour with your favorite bassist, what would you ask them, or talk about?

    Yes instrument sessions included.
     
  2. For a start, I'd say...

    "Well James, how does it feel being dead?"

    That's a bit of a conversation stopper, acutally, so maybe I might say...

    "Kinda dark in here, isn't it Mr Jamerson?"

    If I actually got a reply - not something I'd be too happy about - then maybe we could talk about bass or something.
     
  3. Maybe you could get him something to read or something, he must be bored.

    I have no clue what I'd ask...maybe what his favorite food was, favorite cartoon, fave color. Who he thinks is cooler...Batman or Superman That kinda stuff.

    Bass? why'd we want to talk about that?

    So Mr. Fieldy, what do you think about Slayer?
     
  5. Billy Sheehan would be signing my 10 Attitude basses....
     
  6. I dunno, I don't think I'd even talk about Bass to chuck. I'd rather get to know the guy.

    I would spend the hour with Dann Glenn, and I'd let him do the talking until I had something important or relevant to say.
     
  19. I would ask them for money. A lot of money.:D
