I'm in the car on my way to work and Metallica One comes on the radio. I dig Metallica, when One came out back in my drumming days I played it a lot because it was a great double bass work out for a beginner. Well my focus has swithed to bass in the last 14 months and I have not even heard that song in years. Well I started listening to it in my car and I could not hear the bass at all! I read on TB that they turned him down in the mix but even working the EQ I could barely hear the bass. That's disgusting! How could the egos get in the way soooo much that they hurt thier own recording mix? I mean it was so bad was there a bass in the song? I'm sure there is but the guitars and Lar's jacked up drums drown everything out. Poor Newsted... I would quit too! I know there has been countless Cliff vs Newsted threads but seriuosly I couldn't really tell. How or why would anyone turn the bass down?
