    The world is changed. I feel it in the water.
    I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air.
    Much that once was is lost, for none now live
    who remember it.

    It began with the forging of the Basses of Power. Three were given to the Elves: Matt Freeman, Flea, Jaco, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven were given to the Dwarves: Victor Whooten, Geddy Lee, Cliff Burton, Paul McCartney, Dirk Lance, LES CLAYPOOL, and john paul jones,great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine Basses were gifted to the race of Men : Mike Watt, Ryan Martini, John Entwhistle, Paul Simonon, Mike Dirnt, Jim Creegan, Matt Sharp, Berry Oakley,and Justin Chancellor
    who above all else desire power. For within these Basses was bound the power and the will to rule each race. But they were all of them deceived, for
    deep in the land of Mordor, the Dark Lord MARK HOPPUS forged another Bass, a master Bass, and
    into this Bass he poured all his cruelty, his
    malice and his will to dominate every living
    thing. One BASS to rule them all.

    One by one, the free peoples of Middle Earth fell to the power of the Bass, but there were some who resisted. A last alliance of Bassists and Guitarists marched against the armies of Mordor, and on
    the very slopes of Mount Doom, they fought for
    he freedom of Middle-Earth. Victory was near,
    but the power of the Bass could not be undone.

    MARK HOPPUS appears, crushing a dozen Musicians with each blow of his huge mace.


    It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Isildur, son of the king, took up his father's sword.

    ISILDUR picks up sword, MARK HOPPUS breaks it, but ISILDUR uses the broken blade to cut off MARK HOPPUS 'S fingers, and the Bass.

    And MARK HOPPUS, enemy of the free peoples of
    Middle-Earth, was defeated. The Bass passed to
    Isildur, who had this one chance to destroy
    evil forever, but the hearts of men are easily
    corrupted.

    And the Bass of power has a will of its own. It betrayed Isildur, to his death.

    ISILDUR attacked by goblins, dies in the river, and the Bass is lost in the water.

    And some things that should not have been
    forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. For two and a half thousand
    years, the Bass passed out of all knowledge.
    Until, when chance came, the Bass ensnared nother bearer.

    GOLLUM finds the Bass in the riverbed.


    "My Precious, my own."

    The Bass came to the creature Gollum, who took
    it deep into the tunnels under the Misty Mountains, and there it consumed him.

    "It came to me, my own, my love, my Precious."

    The Bass gave to Gollum unnatural long life.
    For five hundred years it poisoned his mind,
    and in the gloom of Gollum's cave it waited.
    Darkness crept back into the forests of the
    world. Rumor grew of a shadow in the East,
    whispers of a nameless fear, and the Bass of
    Power perceived that its time had come.

    It abandoned Gollum, but then something happened
    that the Bass did not intend. It was picked up
    by the most unlikely creature imaginable. A hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, of the Shire.

    "What's this? A Bass!"


    "Lost! My Precious is lost" GOLLUM Yelled!




    For the time will soon come when hobbits will
    shape the fortunes of all bass players.

    Note: I realze how big of a loser I am :cool:
    The bass players I used were just bass players I liked. In no way is this to put down any bass player.
    Other then Mark Hoppus:D

    shoot, mark hoppus doesn't even rate as a lowly orc, let alone the dark lord.

    good concept, why didn't i think of relating bass to the lord of the rings? ;)

    All you need to do now is put some light-waves on there and turn the silmarils into strings. On the other hand there were 7 Palantiri......
