    After our little improv show last night this older guy came up to shake my hand and say that he really liked my bass tone. I didn't think much of it but our keyboard guy was all smiles... afterwards he said it was Denny Morouse. That didn't ring any bells for me and he had to explain that he was the band leader and sax man for Stevie Wonder on many occasions! Just patting myself on the back, hehe. I was playing my Sadowsky through the tone monster that is the Roland Cube Bass 30 (on the 360 setting), haha.
  2. That kicks so much ass.
    2 questions:
    1-What kind of music did you play?

    2-Who's in your avatar? It looks like a guy from Testament (one of my favorite metal bands) but I don't think it's him.

    He died in about '94.

    He was an amazing comedian, and a true social commentator as well.

    Great guy, very insightful kinda comedian, who also has some of the funniest stuff you'll ever hear.
  6. Haha. The "360 setting"

    I'll be using that from now on. ;)

    "I think drugs have done good things for us, I really do, and if you don't believe drugs have done good things for us, then go home and burn all your records, all your tapes, and all your CDs because every one of those artists who have made brilliant music and enhanced your lives? RrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrEAL ****ing high on drugs."

    And I didn't know Bill Hicks came up with the "It's funny until someone gets hurt, then it's hilarious."
  9. Also came up with the Arizona Bay thing referenced in Ænima by Tool....

    I guess Denis Leary was influenced by Bill Hicks, IIRC. Same type comedy, except Hicks is way funnier. :)
