    Paul McCartney: Overrated or What?

    True but this been a Bass Forum i'm pretty sure it would be about his Bass playing but I could be wrong....I don't doubt his talent as a musician I just don't like him or the Beatles, I think there are far better Bassists around but I am very biased

    Paul McCartney: Overrated or What?

    Jamerson, Weeks, Cogbill. Jemmott, Rainey, Jaco. Babbitt, Jackson....just my opinion mind as I can't stand him or the Beatles

    Paul McCartney: Overrated or What?

    I know this will rattle a few cages but I don't like him as a Bassist or person....as a Bassist he is not in the same league as the greats and as a person I think he is a bighead.

    Decided to call it a day!!!!

    Thanks that's true and to be honest I have flitted between Bass, Electric and Acoustic and become the typical jack of all....master of none, but been thinking things through and decided to concentrate on Acoustic as I can please myself then...as I work very unsociable hours that don't allow me to be in a band now and it gets depressing so hopefully going to learn some Acoustic Fingerstyle Blues and eventually go it alone...that's the plan lol.
  10. Well that's it folks decided to pack up the Bass...it's been a frustrating few years been Bandless for the past 4 years and the last 2 bands I was actually Vocalist/Frontman as I started out as a singer back in the late 70s...I took up Bass about 99/2000ish very late starter but packed up in 07 and started fronting bands again, then my work got in the way hence not gigging for past 4 years and to be honest although I have tried to keep my hand in practising at home I just don't enjoy it anymore...so hoping to get back into solo acoustic stuff....I have enjoyed the Forum it's the best out there I wish you all well but enough is enough, cheers Bob x

    James Jamerson. The Jackson's.

    Jamerson my favourite Bassist
  13. Sabb's probably my favourite band of all time especially the original line up....Master of Reality, Vol4, Sabbotage and Sabbath bloody Sabbath superb era for them.
