Do you ever find yourself listening to music you don't like just to listen to the bass tone? I was thinking about this, and I think I do now and again, maybe not in a huge way, but fair enough! I'm such a nut for the Wal tone that I often listen to RHCP songs where Flea used one. Similarly, I find myself listening to them to hear the sound of his Modulus Flea bass, though the only album of theirs I really dig is Californication! Similarly, I've kinda outgrown Mudvayne, but I occasionally go back to listen, and it's usually a want to hear a Thumb on record that draws me in! I find that Vail Johnson doesn't write the best tunes, but his sound on a Kubicki bass is just heavenly, and it makes me listen for longer than I would if he was using say, a Rondo bass! Anyone else ever listen to music they don't dig a great deal just to hear a delicious bass tone?
