    First, i'd like to say that The White Stripes are an amazing band. An amazing 2 person-band, meaning they have no bassist. Do they really need a bassist? I see all these articles about how bassists hate White Stripes..why? because it shows that a great band does'nt have to have a bassist, it would sound more decent to us bassists but to their style of playing it's fine how it is..so my point is who hear agrees that they sound fine without a bassist,and who doesnt? by the way their piano melodies make up for the bass (rythm) in the band. :bassist:

    The problem with your little declaration is, they don't sound great. And all those little overdubs they do on their new album cannot be accomplished live with 2 people. ALSO, the drummer sucks.

    This thread can be closed now.

    the drummer sucks terribly, but that kinda makes the simpleness of the music.

    There is a huge HUGE difference between "simple" and "not in time with the music."

    no im not a Korn fan. and you guys make me laug, because when someone's posts a question they want people to reply their opinions so they could not be alone on their point, but uh obviousely you guys are stating it like a fact so forget the question it's useless already.

    That's the spirit, just give up. :rolleyes:

    Chill dude, this is a public forum. Note the "Talk" in Talkbass. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and everyone else is entitled to hate that opinion. My advice, do a search on the Stripes, this has been done before. And the vote was casted, overall opinion: Overhyped.

    With you it's like backslide do says, I just guessed it backslide deuce head.

    Maybe your version (probably the correct version) backslide do is like a hair do. :meh:

    Very interesting...
