    Should I make this Bernard Edwards picture my new avatar?

    That would be a good choice. The composition is at a nice angle without much distraction in the background.

    I personally don't get people using other people as their avatars, but it's not something that I'd lose too much sleep over.
    (Unless someone starts using a picture of me as their avatar...that would freak me out a little:eek:)

    Unless...wait...are you Bernard Edwards?

    In that case, as Badwater says, that's a much better image for avatar purposes.

    When one uses other people as there avatar I tend to only see them as that person. I can only picture @Killed_by_Death as Lemmy and @Dr. Cheese as Bernard Edwards. Even though I have seen both of you my minds eye sees the avatar.

    Bernard Edwards is my avatar because his skill and musical choices will always be a role model for me.

  11. Something like mine but with a stethoscope instead of a pimp hat might be nice in the future.

    I always liked your old one at the console but this is cool too.

    I'm still getting mileage out of mine. When I first joined TB, I rotated through my basses as avatars. But it's hard to remember someone based (bassed?) on that.

    As a quality control check confirmation, I Googled Dr. Cheese, and got this...


    ... I think Bernard Edwards is good.

  20. Can't say i've ever seen a photo of KBD...... i too just see him as Lemmy. I actually think that seeing what he really looks like would ruin the current belief.
