I'd like to see an interview with Paul Turner of Jamiroquai. He definitely has the funk stuff down.

I'd like to see an interview with Steve Vantsis, who plays with Fish. I saw him grooving away, looked like he was having fun this past Sunday in DC; then read a blog about how he had smashed his hand severely the week before and was playing through the pain. What a trooper!

Another one with Geddy Lee, since I missed the '07 issue, and to commemorate the release of Snakes & Arrows Live.

You can order a back issue of that. Or wait long enough, and BP will post it on their site.

We have endless regular interviews with Geddy in various mags (he does usually have a lot to say in them though).

How about one with his lookalike - Steve Lawson or the wonderful Todd Johnson?

Ha! laugh

I've often thought that myself, but was afraid if I said anything, Steve would send some goons to beat me up! grin

...the only sad thing about it is that Geddy's more than 20 years older than me. That depressing smile

I'd like to see a feature on Pete Farndon of the Pretenders. Though he was only on two albums, he laid down some great lines.

I think Babydadddy from the Scissor Sisters deserves some ink, his bass lines are really grooving, and always fit to the wide range of styles his band plays. I'd like to know how his keyboard background influences his bass playing.

Guitar solos last 30 seconds, the bass line lasts for the whole song.

Years, nay, decades before I knew who was Wooten or Geddy or even Sting, I knew another bass player. The name screamed rock 'n roll and I was riveted to the sexy image. Yep. Suzi. Quatro. believe it or not, in this day of esoteric two-handed fingerboard tapping and 6 string stratospheric riffs, Suzi is still thumping it out. She's cute and sings well, she could have dropped the bass years ago and shown us just that much more leather, but she still rocks that long axe for every show. I'd like to hear her story, her thoughts, and what on earth she was thinking when she kept a bass strapped around her neck and stepped to the lead mic in barely zipped leather. (and hey, would you invite me to step in as guest writer???)

How about interviews with influential 70's bassists such as Alphonso Johnson, Gary King and Louis Johnson (for instance)....or am I just too old?

How about Reed Mathis of JFJO and Green Leaf Tea? I believe there was a one-pager a few years back, but the things he's done on bass I think he totally deserves a cover story! I've said it before and i'll say it again: Reed is the closest thing to the "next" Jaco out there. No, he doesn't sound just like him, but he is pushing the boundaries on bass and making it sing like nobody else!

Eh, my two cents.

I'd love to read an article on Steve Babb from Glass Hammer. I know the magazine likes to time things with the release of new albums, and their new disc "IF" comes out in September. What say you to a little one-on-one with this talented prog man?

In terms of huge influence in bass playing, has there ever been an interview with Juan Formell? Don't know where Latin bass playing would be without him, and Los Van Van is still a fabulous band.

Rob.
