  1. Zender is a great bassist, this is a fact.

    But the new guy - sure he has his differences, but - in my humble opinion - hes JUST AS GOOD!

    Lets just hope Jason Kays ego and temper tantrums dont drive him away..Id hate to see Jamiroquai die.
  2. The "new guy" is definitely good. He plays great bass lines. And we all know that he probably has little say in terms of creative input.

    However, IMO, Zender's lines had a lot of personality that shined through. You could hear a lot of his roots and influences, but he really brought his own personal flavor to the mix. I have to go with Zender.

    Zender, being my main influence, will ALWAYS be my fave! Nick is an incredible bassist, but Jay smothers his creativity, IMO. I've seen them both live, and Stu rules!

    Stuart zender is great, he has some simple basslines that are so complicated at the same time. i love him

    Isn't that weird? Some of his lines sound so simple, until you learn them! Perfect examples: Cosmic girl and TWM.

    Zender by a mile.

    "Space Cowboy" is my favorite. That song is stuffed with supercool fills and turnarounds. It's a nightmare trying to remember them all!
  8. Major kudos to Nick Fyffe for filling Stuart's spot but Stu's still my favourite of the two. Sorry Nick....

    Cheers rOdy

    Yes! Those fills are great, something I really aspire to.

    I would have to say Stu...... I think Nick is a great player but he lacks the creativity of mr zender. I heard Nick playing some of the old Stu lines and he plays them spot on, Then he played some new stuff and it just didnt sound as good.

    I think Jay has something to do with that. Stu was able to inject a lot of himself into the basslines, sometimes by force. With Nick, Jay isn't allowing that to happen.

    im really loking forward to stuarts new project with Mel Blatt (ex All Saints). I was quite disapointed with his bass work with ms dynamite, Hopefuly the new stuff will get back to some great stu lines.
