  1. Nice to see Diego Maradona keeping himself busy on BVs!
  2. Oooer - not for me

    Maybe, but aint it just perfect though!
  3. Oooer - not for me

    Loved the look of a Strat and P bass at first sight. Still think there is something wonderfully futuristic looking about them, especially the Strat.
  4. Speed!

    If it makes you feel any better, and not knowing the actual track, it's quite possible that the person credited with playing the bass part didn't actually play what you're hearing.
  5. Bizarre but true musical collaborations?

    Thin Lizzy - Midge Ure
  6. Won't Get Fooled Again - closest I got was playing it with Kenney Jones' band.
  7. Quincy - Oh dear!

    In the spirit of esprit de corps I shall refrain from posting my immediate thoughts on reading your post. Must be a coincidence that the BBC game show hosted by Alexander Armstrong was on as I read it.
  8. Quincy - Oh dear!

    I can't really comment on what you've heard or not heard, other than to say, you've clearly been very successful in avoiding all forms of media for the last 55 years.
  9. Quincy - Oh dear!

    Not sure how many of those changed a band's modus operandi.
  10. Quincy - Oh dear!

    And some of those very same groups soon realised that the huge success of The Beatles was a game changer.
  11. Quincy - Oh dear!

    I've always held the view that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that some peoples opinions are worth more than others. Until this interview I would have said QJ's opinion's were worth their weight in gold... seems I would have been wrong!
  12. Quincy - Oh dear!

    That could possibly explain it.
  13. Quincy - Oh dear!

    I've got a lot of respect for the man as an artist, producer, arranger etc. But, IMO, this article does him no favours! Seems it's in our DNA that the older we get, the grumpier we get... at least, some of us! Quincy Jones interview There's a link to the original Vulture interview.
  14. Too many of us are obsessive about gear and looking for that elusive tone/sound. If the money spent on gear were directed towards decent lessons then that tone/sound may be more easily achieved.
  15. Aria Basses - fallen from grace??

    I'm the proud owner of a late 70s SB1000. They are fabulous instruments to play and far from budget quality. However, they are not the most versatile of basses. The narrow neck and string spacing makes "slapping" rather tricky... If that's your bag! Had to replace the pickup a couple of years ago.
