    How it has become seemingly acceptable for the bassist to consistently be the weakest link in a band.

  3. Lazy drummers. If we book a jam space to practice for two hours, you should be able to go two hours. Not 45 minutes.
     

  4. IMO I think a lot of it is to do with attitude of guitarists towards bassists. Far too many guitarists out there have little clue of how to work with a bassist, or indeed what the bassist even DOES. As a result bass has become an afterthought in the music of a lot of bands.

    I'm not saying all guitarists are like this mind you. There are some excellent guitarists out there.

    Other musicians that cannot handle constructive criticism without it bruising their fragile ego.

    You could switch to R&B. Often the guitarist is the weak link.

    What's wrong with smart cars? Not great for transporting a bass rig, definitely, but for scooting around town, going grocery shopping and such, they seem like they'd be fine.

    Drunk chicks who think putting their hands on your genitals while you're playing is a compliment.
