I went to a show at a local bar last weekend. The bassist in a classic rock cover band was wearing shorts. This doesn’t bother me that much but I soon notice he decided to go shoeless as well. One of the guitarists is also shoeless. I have to admit I’m sorta creeped out by it. Then Sunday night I went to a concert at a large outdoor amphitheater. It was Train and the Goo Goo dolls. It was the wife’s idea but I was actually impressed by both bands. So the Dolls are up first and I notice the bassist has, you guessed it, shorts and no shoes. Is this a new trend? Are all the cool bassists doing it? Discuss.
