There are no famous bass players I don't get. I don't get why there are threads bashing Verdine White and Steve Harris, or any other famous bass player on a forum called Talk Bass. These players elevated bass guitar to make the general public aware of the instrument, and thus, deserve their fame. There is nothing to get. If you think you are in some way in a position to judge their technical skill, artistic merit, or value to the human race, you are simply WRONG.
