    Watching the big game & just saw an ad for a movie that includes the greatest band in the history of music, that has the greatest rhythm section in the history of music! That band is Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, with "Animal" on drums & "Sgt. Floyd Pepper" on bass!!:bassist::D I'm sure ya'll agree!:)

    I always list Sgt. Floyd Pepper as one of my main influences...right after Geddy and Steve H...

    and we can't forget Janice, the hottie guitar player

    Yeah, but where's the bass player? Must be a Doors type thing with the keys playing bass lines.

  18. I dunno if it was intentional, but wasn't Floyd Animal's caretaker? If I recall correctly, it was Floyd who was always at the end of Animal's collar-chain. Even in the not-so-real world, the drummer and the bass player still gravitate to one another - collar and chain not withstanding.
