    Anyway, i think i posted something like this before, but so what. Dawg the skin-head with sideburns bassist Sam Rivers from Limp Bizkit all you want, but he's cool to me. Very aggressive and on their first CD he gets a mean sound from his Warwick SS2 that blows me away. How does he get that sound? Its really crunchy and deep. Probly no one will answer but, just in case you do, Thanks.

    PS. i shave my head too..

    I still prefer Sam Rivers' saxin' & flutin'...
    Anyway, you should be happy that the October BASS PLAYER mag's cover boy is Limp's Rivers.

    I saw Limp B. last week in Monza, at "Indipendence Day", and I think his sound is crunchy and deep too; but I don't know does he get that sound.

    K, if you guys can refrain from posting pointless crap that you know wont help me out, i'd appreciate it.

    PS, I actually think he was using Ibanez SDGR's on Three Dollar Bill, Y'all. along with Wes Borland cause the guys from Korn hooked them up with Ibanez.
     
  7. You call my post useless, huh? I am very hurt.

    I believe it is a set of flimsy business or marketing tools.

    Well...!
    I mentioned next month's BASS PLAYER mag(& yes, I will check it out & read every word about the guy).
    Now regarding "music"...check out Sam Rivers, the sax player(like maybe Dave Holland's CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS album).

    hey guys. i dont mean to hurt anyone's feelings, ok. But sometimes I post things in the hopes of getting real answers. ya dig? Sometimes if you guys could hold back the urge to impress each other by coming up with the wittier remark, it would help move things along a little quicker. Again i dont wanna upset anyone, k? kewl..

    Just an observation, but which is worse getting sarcasm or getting no response? At least the sarcasm bumps the thread back to the top. BTW, you are not the only one who sometimes gets no "real answers" to questions posted. It's happened to all of us. I'd respond, but I really don't listen to LB.

    Chris A.:rolleyes:

    I have got "Dream of the Elders", but haven't seen "Conference of Birds" in the shops - I'll have to look out for this. I still don't know who this "Dawg" guy is, but then I don't understand what the original post is saying - "separated by a common language"?

    This thread now reminds me of one of those corny war films, where you get the Nazi doing the interrogation and he keeps saying "No, Ve ask Ze Qvestions!" You will answer the question and won't deviate from the subject!

    Sorry Wes...

    Bruce-
    I'm not the right one to talk about LB & Sam Rivers(bassist). I do remember when LB's first cd came out; they were described as an "more angry, more dissonant 311". I like 311; I haven't gotten around to buying anything by LB.

    Sorry Jim, I was more looking for a translation of what all this was about, into "english" ;) from someone whose posts I usually understand. I seem to be experiencing "communication breakdown". Don't worry it's probably just me :rolleyes:

    "Conference of Birds", are we talking Dave Holland, here? Now I'm lost...:(


    But I think I can help with the "Dawg" thing, Bruce. I think what he's trying to say is this:

    "Make fun of the skin-headed bassist, who also has sideburns, known as Sam Rivers from Limp Biskit, all you want..." etc.



    "dawg" as in "dis", "make fun of", "pick on"...etc...I've never seen it spelled that way before, though...except here in Cleveland Stadium where the Browns have the "Dawg Pound"...woof woof! :D

    So we're being asked to make fun of the bass player from Limp Biscuit? I'm still a bit mystified - what's wrong with him, what's he done to deserve this pillarying?

    I did see the band on "Top of the Pops" in the UK and they seemed to be playing the theme tune to "Mission Impossible" but is this any reason to have a go at them? Just sounded a bit bland to me, nothing particularly offensive.


    PS
    So this is ghetto-speak? Another example of how kids today want to be seen to be black? Or at least the opposite of White Trash.

    Oddly, I remember reading that from somewhere...
