    Mr. Watt,

    Any plans to make a "how to" book and accompanying CD of your bass playing?

    When's your next album due? Is it with the secondmen? I couldn't make your recent show up in the SF bay area - Any plans to come up north again? I live in San Jose.

    Thanks for taking the time to be on the board. I think I'll go put "History Lesson Part II" on repeat for several hours so I can make it through another work day.

    Ragin, Full On!

    I think a Minutemen/Firehose/Mike Watt bass anthology book would be cool for cats! I'd want it. They've done it for Flea, Les Claypool, why not Mike Watt? :cool:
  3. What songs would you like to see in such a book?
  4. Dude:

    I hope they do a "Standing in the Shadows of.." Movie/tunebook abpout Mr. Watt and the Minutemen...

    I think it should include every Watt/Boone/Hurley tune and be called...

    "The Roar of Masses Could Be Farts"

    Dude, I'd totally by a copy! (if it was econo enough)

    that's very nice of you to say but no plans for a how-to book on the bass from me right now.

    my next album will be w/the secondmen and we're looking to put it out this spring.

    on bass, watt
