    I think this thread should be linked to that "Is there a bass player look?" thread a while back ...because wow, just wow he looks awesome with those basses on the site.

    "Is that you, Lt. Dan? Lt. Dan that is you!!!!" awww memories :bawl:

    He (and his band) were always the coolest thing to read about while stuck in line doing pre-deployment stuff with only military publications to read. His interviews are riveting and the appearance of him and his group are top notch. I would love to see him play.

  11. I noticed Lt. Dan plays a Line 6. I don't know much about their basses/guitars. Has anybody here played/likes them? Opinions please.

    Lol. Yeah, Gary Sinise plays bass phenomenally well. Just like Hugh Laurie is an amazing musician period.

    Sweet! First thing I thought... Why hasn't he done a Jaco movie?!?

    Edit: I realized I can't quote pictures on the mobile app. It's in reference to Mr. Depp playing a sweet 60's P bass!

    When I was in London last year I saw a really cool TV show documenting Hugh Laurie traveling to New Orleans to play blues and jazz with local musicians.
  19. Agreed. I had the pleasure of meeting (and hearing) Mr Sinise and his band about 3 years ago and was impressed.

    Fairly good bass player and a outstanding human being!! The man is a real patriot. ;)
