    Most of the time you can tell what a person drives just by looking at their attire and the way they behave etc.

    For example I am a very simple contemporary person and cannot afford extremely fancy cars but i drive a 06 ford fusion which i think suits me because of the way i am.

    Now what i am trying to figure out is what type of cars do John patitucci, Will Lee, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, les claypool etc,
    Based on their personalities and playing what do they drive?

    I can kind of see marcus miiler in a black Cadillac cruising down the road , because he is allways looking good in live apperances, and i think a caddy just goes on him.

    You can take a guess or if you actually know then go ahead and tell us.

    mmm thats sounds strangely familiar relating to a bassist....weird, i keep on getting ideas rushed into my head, but i cant figure out where that deja vu is coming from.

    In the By the Way video, Flea drives an orange Ford Bronco, seems pretty fitting to his personality. The first 2 posts = what?? The OP asked about famous bass players and what THEY drive...? Or am I the one missing something...

    Um, Mike Watt? The Minutemen? He drives a van... he calls himself "the man with the van and a bass in his hand".
  8. I know Andrew Gouche drives a BMW.

    Adam Nitti, I'm guessing maybe Land Rover.
  9. I could see Vic Wooten driving a Subaru. He's "outdoors-y" like that, but he doesn't seem an SUV kind of guy.

    pete wentz drives a mercedes benz roadster thing, and a cadi escalade.
    both shown on the interwebs getting pulled over.
    ironically fitting.

    Victor wooten on a Subaru sounds odd and hilarious but somehow it fits him!
    Toyota fits him as well.

    Flea with a van or old mercedes definitely fits him.

    Like others here i agree Adam nitty on something german like a beamer.

    We must get to bottom of this!

    Yes, indeed. Although the host of this clip is kind of cheesy, I love that someone at Kelley Blue Book had the good musical taste to come up with this idea.

    One look at his touring schedule reveals that it has very low mileage. The man seems to be perpetually touring.
