Let's play a game. I wish it doesn't turn a "vomitting the hate to a famous bassist" thread. Which famous bass player would you like to replace? This is just a mind exercise. Think that a famous bass player had to leave the band for a reason (his wife is pregnant/she is pregnant , he began to think that a 9:00 AM-6:00 PM work is better (so he went out of mind), he decided to dedicate himself for the fight to save Terrier dogs from going extinct ). So you don't have to kick him out of the band, but you'll replace him as the new bass player for the known band. Who do you think that you can replace and you can do well with their music in future. Of course we don't know the internal affairs of the band, maybe the lead guitarist and drummer are nuts and dictating the band , maybe it's their wife/girlfriend is putting her nose in everything (This is NOT Spinal Tap ). Whatever, this is out of the scope of the game. Rules of the game: 1. This is not "who is your idol bass player" thread. For example Steve Harris of Iron Maiden is my idol as a bass player, but I wouldn't like to replace him (because I CAN'T, in fact no one can, never will be able, OK I'm little bit biased when things come to Iron Maiden). In fact I believe noone can 100% replace someone else. This is not a "who would you like to be" thread either. 2. This is nor a "I'm better than ...(put a name)" thread. OK maybe you are an undiscovered miracle, a next Jaco. But this game is not intended to present yourself to us, mortal humans 3. This is nor a "...(put a band name)'s bass player sucks, I could double their performance if I were their bassplayer" thread. Don't forget, it's just a game, let's play for fun. Cheers!
