    So who’s the biggest asshole there, Lars?

    I think the proper notation for the chord was A33h0L3.

  4. Ugh….Lukather….SUCH an asshole….He could probably be asleep and STILL come off as an asshole.

  5. Maybe some of this cuts both ways. Here’s Kim Deal talking about the difference between her own style and that of “real” bass players:

    She’s very proud of being boring.

  7. Deal is not claiming that she’s boring. She’s saying that she avoids overplaying.

    The bass in that song is boring. It establishes no appropriate backdrop, counterpoint, conduit between rhythm and melody, nor groove or mood as far as I’m concerned. Deal expounds on her minimalistic approach compared to what some mythical other “real” bass player might have done. That is also boring. Me having to explain all this to you, is more boring still.

  9. Kim Deal is the reason a whole generation of bands has grown up thinking they don’t need a bass player.

    Avoiding overplaying is not something to be proud of in and of itself. Put, I don’t know, an oboe in my hands, teach me how to play the note that’s the key the song is in and I’ll do a tremendous job of not overplaying. I’ll non-overplay the shit out of that thing. Does that make me a great, or even a good, oboe player?

  10. Kim’s kinda coming across as an alterna-asshole.

    The main reason Metallica dude is having trouble is because he’s DISTRACTED BY THE 63 PEDALS HE NEEDS TO MAKE HIS GUITAR SOUND LIKE buzzzzzzz.
