    Warwick strings

    I use them on my fender jazz and they sound great..maybe a touch more gnarly than d'addario's which is good with me.. i recommend giving them a try

    Songs you absolutely hate

    Agreed with the above,and some of my other most hated have been had Livin on a prayer , Wonderwall but i dont think i've seen that utterly shite Micheal Jackson tune where he had the 'god complex'

    Bean9seventy - the first UK funk / slap bassist?

    Well i guess if your looking at funk within a fairly narrow field of references but i have always thought of [Santana ,Billy Cobham ,Lenny White] all of which Doug played for, to be very funky and pioneering in the jazz funk/fusion field ...

    Small bass combos?

    I use an Eden EC180 15 for smaller gigs ,and it handles things well a lot more so than my old TC BG250 which use to struggle with an enthusiastic drummer.

    Jazz bass dilemma

    I have had all the bass's mentioned so far and think all would work nicely i would also strongly recommend the Sire v7 which are the most versatile of all https://www.thomann.de/gb/marcus_miller_v7_alder_4_ts.htm?glp=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkcLzu8Ts2QIVLrHtCh0ySwuVEAQYBSABEgIlAPD_BwE

    Bruno Mars. Commercial slave.?

    I think Bubinga has a valid point in as much as Mars's music is a pastiche of things that have been successful in the past and seems to lack any original creativity, granted he is hugely popular which i'm sure his record label love but he is never going to be the next Marvin ,Curtis ,Smokey ,James Brown or the hip hop artist's he's parodying of late... more Jimmy Osmond than James Brown i would say ,he even has the teeth
