    Trent reznor (Nine inch nails)
    Les Claypool (Primus etc.)

    Wouldn't that be one awesome combination?
    They're both musical geniuses... and they bothm seem to have kinda twisted humour...

    whaddya think?

    I doubt it would work out...those two have too strong personalities for more than a brief collaboration/side project....

    Ya, I don't think it would be that great either. Trent Reznor seems like a studio/effect/electronics wizard. He doesn't even have much bass in his tunes anyway.
    Les Claypool is doing some cool stuff in side projects like Oysterhead with Trey Anastasio of Phish.

    Yes, but maybe a song or so...

    Imagine a layered electronic noise on top with les slapping/tapping in the background and both of em singing duet ...

    Apparently "musical genius" is a highly subjective phrase.

    I won't pummel you, Jazzbo. Not when you have that vicious kendo stick in your hands and look like you know how to wield it. I'll behave.

    Uuuh ... not everyone. I don't. I admire his technique and his originality (either in bass playing, attitude, clothes ...). I respect him and his work but I don't like his music at all ... even if I listen to it from time to time, just for the technical stuff.
  10. hahaha yeah thats a wicked picture. I dont dig him either, i like listenin to him, but hes not playin bass
