    You would be talking about the song "Big Bottom". Derek plays a pretty awesome groove on that song.

  8. Oh such a classic!

    Actually I saw this one on one of them SNL specials (VH1, US?) and it was all LMAO!

    As the singer (don't recall the name) was introducing everyone I was going like WTH?

    bass... bass... bass synthesizer (correct spelling, awright!)... lead bass!... what the...???????

    The whole thing was so funny... looked like they were mocking heavy metal's obsession with guitar armies!(The whole macho swinging guitar posing stuff)

  11. I saw Spinal Tap for the first time yesterday. I was screaming of laugter in some of the scenes, my sister was watching it with me and thought there was something wrong with me. :D

    "This is D minor, the saddest of all keys. People hear this and weap instantly."

    "Hear the sustain on this *waaaaaa*. You can go and have a bite and it'll still be like *waaaaa*."

    And my favorite:

    "I get alot of freedom to express myself in my solos..."
    *Nigel on stage with guitar doing a solo*
    *Nigel kicking a guitar in a stand on the stage*
    *Nigel picking up a violin and strumming the guitar with it*

  12. The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'...:D :D
  13. talk about mudflaps, my girls got `em
