    I know that this has probably been done before, but this guy is just completely underrated.

    I personally cannot stand Mike Patton, which is why I kind of tune out his moaning in Mr. Bungle and listen to dunn.

    Another INCREDIBLY underrated bassist- Klaus Fluoride

    ... that's why the search function is so cool to use :eyebrow: .

    BTW, Trevor is one of my favorites, though.

    Trevor Dunn rules.Very versatile between Bungle and Fantomas there is huge differences in style and he fits perfectly...

    I just noticed everytime he's mentioned, someone, including me, calls him underrated. :D

    Like so many of our ilk, he is looked over for more popular fare.

    You wanna talk about Chromatic Fantasy being hard? Play the Dead Goon fills.

    Yikes.

    Once again, I love Trevor, but...

    A) He didn't write Dead Goon, the Bungle Drummer did (on piano I think)
    B) Chromatic Fantasy is 10000000x harder than Dead Goon
    C) Dead Goon sounds better
    D) It's still not as hard.

    Yeah, the drummer (Danny) wrote that bassline (Dead Goon). When he presented it to Trevor to play, I think Trevor pretty much went "NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" Darth Vader style.
