Does anyone play the Bass like JJ Burnel of the Stranglers these days? This was a guy who could teach these new age weenie punksters like Green Day a thing about getting down with your bad self Story goes he even broke an E string live on stage back in 77 And flea? Nothing hot about his pepper can anyone tell me why he has become a hero to so many bass players? Its beyond me! What inspires you folks who or what makes you want to turn off the TV and do the two fingered tango? Got to admit its the likes of JJ Burnel (how did he tune his bass so low), Gong (its OK almost no one has ever heard of them - but they were the undisputed kings of psychedelic space jazz rock), Led Zep (Any live version of dazed and confused does it for me) and of course the first few seconds of Deep Purples live classic Made in Japan will make me reach of the P. But thats just me and people think Im a little odd.
