Someone commented recently that, despite seeing a plethora of Stingrays being used live, he'd never seen a Warwick being used live. I find this impossible to believe, but it got me thinking. Sure, the Stingray is tried and true and you see them positively everywhere. The Warwicks are relatively "new" and maybe not so popular. However, the inference was that because of this phenomenon that Warwicks were somehow tonally inferior. So, to set the record straight I want you guys to name bands or artists that have been backed by a Warwick bass player! Here's my contributions - most of which have been witnessed at some music festival or another over the years; (nb; he happened to be a fellow Aussie, so I have included many Aussie bands that are reasonably big here but may be unheard of to most o' you guys!) Pre-shrunk (cult Aussie band, both bassists use and endorse Warwicks) 311 (who doesn't know P-nut!?!?) Regurgitator (sure I've even seen the distinctive top horn or a corvette in a film clip) Incubus (actually worked on the crew for that gig, man, what a setup!) Grinspoon Killing Heidi (supported these guys just as they were getting famous - had a great chat to the bassist about our Warwicks!) Tommy Emmanuel 28 Days ...and these are just the gigs I remember seeing Warwicks being played - there's many others that have slipped into the dark recesses of my brain! I must admit, however, that it's always a little surprising to see them, because so often these days it's a ubiquitous P-bass, jazz or a 'ray. But, to say that you've never seen one played live is no reflection on their quality. Worth noting that I watched a LOT of the Live 8 concert and the only idiot using a Bongo that I saw was that singing-canary-loving-weirdo Randy Jackson!
