that's really funny, since right now I'm wearing a shiatty Colonel Sanders necktie, and sawing away on a guitar and stomping the floor like it owes me money and slapped my mama

It was their only good song, until it got overplayed.

Like The Cave.

But he's the bass player. Let him play, he'll do fine.

I hate that term, "bass player". There is no instrument called a bass. Why don't we call other instrument players "treble players"? Call them bass guitar players or whatever the instrument is.

B.L.Z. Bub: There is no instrument called a bass



Phil farking Lesh, Paul McCartney, Jaco Pastorius, John Entwistle, Peter Hook, Pete Quaife, Noel Redding, Bill Wyman, Geddy Lee, Bootsy Collins, John Paul Jones, Mike Gordon, Paul Simonon, Brian Wilson, Lemmy, Simon Gallup, Eric Avery, Geezer Butler, Jeff Ament, and about a thousand others would like a word with you.

I didn't know they had a stage act, I thought they were going to get a History Channel show.

They'll be the first black leads on a History Channel show outside of February.

You completely missed my point. Those musicians played bass GUITARS, call them bass GUITAR players. THERE IS NO INSTRUMENT CALLED SIMPLY "BASS".

They're supposed to headline Bonnaroo on Saturday night, which is the main reason I'm going (don't judge). Poo.

Sigh No More and Feel the Tide are probably my top two.  A couple of songs will get overplayed, but for those who listen to the album (and not just the radio), you'll find other good ones =)

/not saying you just listen to the radio.

Main page for this retarded donkey farking piece of shiat band? What happened, did they get famous somehow?
 
2013-06-11 01:08:31 PM  
I play guitar and bass.  I've been in a bunch of different bands.   When I'm playing a guitar, I'm a guitar player.  When I'm playing a bass, I'm a bass player.

Don't get your panties in a wad over terminology...  It just makes your ass hurt and makes other people laugh at you.

I play also. I don't even use the word guitar most of the time. It's either "lead" or "rhythm" sometimes accompanied by "bass" and "drums" sometimes even "keys" all of which can sometimes be considered percussion.

They don't call the lead singer "choir boy," either. The drummer is playing more than just drums, yet we don't call him the "percussionist." Pedantic -- you are being it.

So its going to be Mumford and Son?

Too soon?

Now we're getting into singing and away from instrument playing. Stay on topic, please.

"Percussionist" is more general than "drummer", and I'm asking people to be more SPECIFIC. PAY ATTENTION. As for "drummer" not being 100% accurate, AT LEAST THERE'S AN INSTRUMENT CALLED "DRUMS".

Some people have no taste. Philistine percussionists.

How do you know there's a drummer at your door?

The knocking gets louder and faster and he doesn't know when to come in.

The drool is coming out of both sides of the drummers mouth.
