  1. Good to see some positive vibes for STP from everyone. Most of the other opinions I've read are very positive - people seem to be willing them on to do well, probably because they had such a torrid time wih SW. They are my favourite rock band of all time and Scott was the last of the great frontmen IMO. Robert is also my favourite rock bassist, such a groover, and that band are just untouchable when they are at their best. ?
  2. They've bagged themselves a new singer, a former X-Factor USA contestant no less, but don't let that put you off. The guy has the chops to commemorate Scott Weiland's legacy, and has his own thing going on too. I hope they do really well with him, if ever a band deserves a new start, it's this lot. Oh, and Robert DeLeo has bagged himself a new bass too - a Nelson custom PJ. Never heard of 'em.
  3. I actually have the same problem with my phone and am waiting for a sensible answer... 😂😂😂
  4. Michael Anthony was without doubt Van Halen's secret weapon. Impeccable timing, great backing vocals, a sixteenth note pulse that would kill lesser bassists and a thoroughly decent chap to boot. The only proof of his ability you'll ever need is the Live:Right Here, Right Now concert film. Michael Anthony is a badass.
  5. [quote name='Steve Browning' timestamp='1503479037' post='3358494'] I used to play in a (blues) band in which the singer would preface EVERY guitar solo with 'play me some blues on that thing' and every one of his harp solos with 'excuse me a while'. [/quote] My toes curled just reading that. 😊
  6. The Sweet's "Action" by Def Leppard.
  7. IMO anyone who thinks that using tab, chord diagrams or any other tool that helps a player learn their instrument is somehow "wrong", belong in the same category as bassists that believe using a pick is also somehow "wrong".
  8. [quote name='LZD56' timestamp='1502877127' post='3354070'] Sorry, he didn't mention why a 6 string. Can only assume it's for Gizmodrome, his new band with Adrian Belew & Stewart Copeland? [/quote] Disappointingly, he did say in the article that he's only got it "for noodling on". Somewhat inspired by seeing Thundercat at Glastonbury, he asked Status to make him a six string version of his paramatrix bass. So there you go - just gonna give Rob Green a buzz and tell him I too saw Thundercat (on telly) and can I have a free bass please. 😂 I'm actually hoping to see MK play that sixer live.😊
  9. I bought a Sire MM V7 last year from Thomann, very playable straightouttadabox. Only needed minor tweaking to get it up to my preferred set-up. 😊

    +1 for the cue cards. Plus YouTube is your friend. 😁
  11. Sorry, but I don't care if Justin himself built that bass. Nearly £1400 for a Mustang is a bit cheeky. Tis nice though.
  12. [quote name='Chaos Daveo' timestamp='1499243967' post='3330177'] As for his attitude, it's all for attention... [/quote] A singer in a rock n roll band being an attention seeker? Whatever next? 😂😂😂
  13. I liked Oasis for the most part. Again, I'm of that age where they sound tracked nights out, and a not-so-misspent youth, but I've never got the Beatles comparisons. I think it was something perpetuated by them more than the press, but I could play any Oasis album and hand on heart say none of it sounds like the Beatles.
  14. "I'm totally having it until the little fella starts singing..."
  15. I disagree a little. His voice is better than it was in the latter years of Oasis, but his backing band are pretty average and was it just me or was he reading the lyrics of an autocue?
  16. Cheers for sharing, will give that a listen later. 😊
  17. That's what I thought. I'm not particularly technically minded, so it's always nice to come on BC and ask someone who is. 😁
  18. I've been looking for a wiring harness for a PJ build I'm in the middle of, but can't find any specifically for a PJ configuration. Can I use a wiring harness for a jazz bass? 😊
  19. [quote name='SpondonBassed' timestamp='1497285551' post='3317042'] ... and Andy Summers on Drums. Played on 6music this morning. Interesting. I'll be keeping my ears open. [/quote] Did you mean to type "Stewart Copeland"..? 😁
  20. Featuring a certain M. King on bass. I like it, sounds interesting.... https://youtu.be/ygZyuB21gMU
  21. [quote name='Sharkfinger' timestamp='1496819096' post='3313984'] No idea, sorry. Bought it on eBay and the seller couldn't remember what brand it was. Standard neck pocket though. [/quote] PM'd
  22. [quote name='Sharkfinger' timestamp='1496322566' post='3310493'] still for sale [/quote] Do you know what make it is? Squier? I'm interested. 😊
  23. My copy does not have that Sgt Pepper image anywhere in it.
