sublime's bassist

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by DeepDeath, Dec 13, 2001.


  1. im a mildish sublime fan i think they some good music with a fresh kind of sound in california. and i would say that there bassist can freakin groove the song date rape and wrong way and some of the best popular music basslines ive heard.

    Eric is a great bassist, and Sublime is a great band. Very groovy:)
     
  5. Yeah, I definitely(my word my spelling is horrid) like my share of sublime. something about the mixture of reggae, ska, punk, hip-hop, dub and acoustic (dare I say folk? Nah.... easy listen' ya..)

    40 ounces to freedom is IMO their best work.
     
  6. I agree. I really dig the song "get out" which isn't on the version of 40 oz. that we all know and love.

    i don't really know much about the bassist, but i like what i've heard and sublime's very cool indeed. very relaxing and mellow style.
     
  8. Yes indeed. My band has always covered Sublime songs and I love e'm, especially the song "Date Rape". Theres nothing no one could hate about Sublime so there good party songs.
     
  9. He can cold jerk the strings with a vengence! I was at a concert last year where in the middle of a song he dumped a bucket of peeled apples on the stage and started smashin' them with his bass! What a show! He's like a mix between that Korn guy and Jason Culcree! I thout I was the only fan!

    Edit: Dumb signature removed.

    ***? eric? korn guy?

    arghh my head hurts!

    PS: well done angus
     
  12. There bassist is a master of taking simple chords and making them sound great. He has never played anything very complicated (that I have heard) I have seen them live a few times and the guy always misses notes, looses time and just does some completey stupid sh*t. Yet he's one of my favorite bassist.
     
  13. yup...gotta love eric. Im currently listening to 40 oz to freedom now. Im figurin out ebin too...i love that beginnin part.
