    Someone on fb has suggested that this is the greatest bass solo ever


    Looks like that bloke wanted a guitar and someone bought him a bass. Followed by noise. Bet he’s a good drummer.

    The toughest one we do has to be The Real Me by The Who, not too bad if I busk it a bit but nail the important runs in the verses, but a lot of people in our audiences expect it to be bang on all the way through as they've seen the opening scene to Quadrophenia so many times they know every bit. But I'm not sure Entwistle ever played it the same twice. 

    That said, the one that I've balls'd up with the most frequency is the bass breakdown in Special Brew by Bad Manners. It's not difficult at all and in rehearsal, or at any other time, I can just play it without thinking, but for some reason my mind goes blank whenever we gig it. I think it's because we do it at the end of a medley starting with Chasing Cars (of all things) which starts slow but gets skanked up, flows into Lip Up Fatty and then into Special Brew, and I have the whole medley to start thinking, 'oh shite, I can't remember that bass part', and we all know what happens when you start thinking. 

    I’d love to play the real me.

    Guess it’s just improvised all the way though.

  3. I like all periods of music, off to the opera tomorrow, currently got Anthrax on the headphones.

    I’m finding that with cover bands, they’re reluctant to do much after 1980? That’s when they’re playing to people in their twenties, too.
    I met some guys in a psych covers band recently, they were unaware that there’s loads of new psychedelia out right now. Firmly stuck in the 60’s, the music of their youth.

    Do you people just find their comfort zone and stay there until they keel over?


  4. I’m looking for a new band to play bass or guitar in. Current band are just too busy for me. In the last four bands, I’ve been the youngest (I’m currently 43), by about ten years usually. When we play it obviously doesn’t matter but with the other stuff it does, musical references, inspiration, song selection (I really don’t like ‘brown sugar’),

    Am I wrong to enquire about the age of band members when looking for a new band? As we all know age doesn’t matter...
