    Funny...that doesn't look like me! :D


    You can have all of your multi-laminate, extended-range, exotic hardwood basses and your players who slap, pop, and weedle their way into oblivion...this is the face of genius, talent, and musicianship.

    Long live Jonsey!!!

    This bass is gross. F5 bass. Damnit.
    This kind of pic should be reported to a moderator.
    :p
     
  5. :rolleyes:

    Funny you say that, because JPJ uses exotic-wood multi-laminate extended-range basses pretty extensively, and was using absolutely ridiculous Alembics back in the day.

    By the looks of that face, he certainly shall.
    Is this guy aging well or what?!
     
  7. Hey, somebody's gotta collect the royalties after Page and Plant drop, although Plant's been healthier ever since he became a born-again ( :confused: ).

    Absolutely (tongue in cheek), and he has done some amazing work with the mandolin, bass lap steel, 8, 10, and 12 string Manson basses lately...not to mention what he can do with an Apple lap top on stage!!! That said, Jonesy could still out-groove anyone alive with nothing more than two fingers and skinny stick of maple tacked onto a block of alder. ;)

    The following is a private chain jerk at a fellow Chicago-area TB'er:

    And I got to see him, and you didn't...nah nah nah!

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.

    Way to rub it in HD! :mad:

    Keep in mind that I DID get to meet my idol and source of life-long inspiration on the Zooma tour, and am STILL waiting for Jonesy to come back to the U.S. for a headline tour for Thunderthief...will it EVER happen? :confused:

    You can bet that I'll be there for THAT one!!!
     
  12. I saw him on the Zooma tour AND got his autograph!!! :p

    To Aluminumcatish-When I saw Jonsey on the Zooma tour, I was fortunate enough to get no fewer than SEVEN items signed....trump THAT one!

    :D :D :D ;)

    Xush-If you're a bass player, it is a MUST SEE show. If you are a musician, it is a MUST SEE show. If you're a music fan, it is a MUST SEE show. After 35 years, he is currently playing as well as he ever has and, as usual, is pushing the boundaries of musicianship to the max...from playing the vocal parts to Black Dog on bass lap steel to looping 4 parts on stage individually to build a hugely complex and layered piece of music.

    Word. I spent most of the show with my jaw in my lap.
