Hi guys/gals, Sorry I have to rant here...I was flicking through the latest edition of Bass Guitar Magazine and they had a few pages dedicated to SNOW PATROLS BASSIST!!!!! Godawlmighty!!!...I mean come on what qualifies this guy to get a 2 page interview in a "specialist" magazine??...next it'll be a 4 page spread about coldplays bassist ..oh wait a minute... Sorry for sounding elitist but I dont rate any of these guys and I dont even consider them bassists (they are the typical I cant play an instrument to save my life...hey I can play bass!!)..hell I know 16 year olds that can play better and know more than these guys....the bassists in these bands are the very definition of the joke about the kid asking his dad for money for a bass lesson and then the next week is doing a gig. I mean I used to buy bass magazines to actually learn something and be exposed to musicians I otherwise wouldnt...and as such remember the days when bass mags were geared towards BASSISTS....not failed guitarists...I used to love reading about the likes of wooten/rocco/jaco etc...in a BASS magazine..I mean you wont see Biker world (or its equivalent) doing 2 page spreads on "Dwayne the guy who sorts the screws and takes out the trash".. apologies for the rant I just seriously needed to vent.
