  1. I don't really like the Hoffner but I like that it's not the standard choice. McCartney sounds like McCartney because he doesn't use the usual instrument and amp choice. I know Fenders are popular because they sound great but the whole P bass in to an Ampeg thing is a bit unimaginative and always sounds pretty much the same. The Hoffner has never been a common choice so it stands out visually and sonically.
  2. I'm always surprised when musicians have such appreciation for music which is so far from their own genre but I'm starting to think it's quite common among a lot of most creative musicians.
  3. I don't think it's all that recent. He's done quite a few metal songs. He's always a good listen no matter what song it is. I would far rather listen to Doug than Rick Beato.
  4. Bullet (train) with butterfly wings - Smashing Pumpkins
  5. River Runs Red - Life Of Agony I completely forgot about them. Excellent band.
  6. Asphyxiate to resuscitate - Cannibal Corpse
  7. I'm too ugly and old to get away with it. I can't play the accordion either but they sound bloody awful anyway so no one would notice that.
  8. If everyone did the same thing music would be boring. I'm a big fan of Billy Gould. He seems to sound different on every record.
  9. Whatever happened to them? Don't hear much of them these days.
  10. I wouldn't be competing for that one
  11. No one seems to want a heavy rock / metal bassist in his 40s who can only rehearse once a week. Everyone seems to think they're going to be the next big thing.
  12. I think very few of them look for someone available before posting a wanted ad. Searching through the wanted ads is a pain in the rectum because of all the ads with the all instruments option ticked so when you've filtered for metal bands looking for a 40+ year old bassist who can commit to weekly practice, half the ads that come up are actually looking for something completely different. I'm sure if I was a 20 year old female accordion player available to go touring with a electro pop duo I'd do much better.
  13. I'm still having bass lessons (coz I'm rubbish) and my teacher plays with a band under his name but two thirds of his shows are just him with an acoustic guitar and he played all instruments on his record. I think the band are whoever is available from a group of several musicians he knows. In that case, it makes most sense to use his name instead of a band name.
  14. I probably would go for a band simply called Nigel. Unless Colin were looking for a bassist.
