    the top 100 rock bands of all time. Well...they get to number...like 22 i think...The Red Hot Chilli Peppers. So they come to the subject of flea...And so the sub-subject of Flea's slapping. And guess who comes up to comment. FiElDy and the comment: "Flea got me slapping" The world is comming to an end.
    :eek: :eek:

    So what's wrong with this? Everyone here has influences... I'm not surprised at all that one of his would be Flea.

    damn straight, why the heck-a-roony should anyone get ridiculed for being inspired by someone?

    i know that feildy isnt *quite the effigy of a typical flea student.....but that doesnt mean he cant be inspired by him.

    another example would be how i play in a hardcore/thrash/punk band, and im heavily inspired by jamiroquai and the RHCP bassist in question.

    Just because on stage im all root notes and jumping doesnt mean when i get home i dont hold down a groove...

    :rolleyes:

    fin.

    *=admittedly not a strong enough word.

    Rachel Perry is one sexy Canadian VJ. She's the only one on VH1 who's name I know.

    ...and this is shocking?!
    I woulda been taken totally by surprise if he cited Milt Hinton, Graham, Louis Johnson, & Stanley as "slap" influences.

    Some people never learn. Just quit watching MTV and VH1. Your soul will thank you.

  12. I saw that a couple of months ago. The list for the most part sucked though. They definitely had some good things up there, but they left out so much. I'm glad (and surpirsed) that Fugazi made the list, but they left out alot of great punk bands. Also, I don't see why Zepplin won.

    Has anyone ever counted the number of fieldy hating threads on TB at one time? Don't be a bunch of koRn-holes.
