Bass chair you would kill for


Recommended Posts

Well me Stuart Clayton and Bumpcity we are already having the third world war to get the bass chair of Jamiroquai.


So let's say that all the bass chairs were available which ones you would kill for? :)


I would for



Dave Matthews Band

Stevie Wonder


and I think is that so far.


How about you guys?

Not that I think I'm on the same level as Pino, but I'd love to sit in with The Who.


If White Heart were to reform, I'd send them an audition disk. Maybe Anthony Sallee would even give me a recommendation; I've met him a few times.


Same with Triumph- they're due for a reunion tour. Mike Levine can just play keys while I play bass behind Rik Emmett!


Caedmon's Call's bass player, Jeff Miller, always seems to be missing tour dates; I'll have to nudge Andy Osenga a little harder to let me sit in there.


Note- I wouldn't kill to get these jobs. Just happen to be there when an unfortunate accident happens to someone? Maybe...

I have excluded bands were I'd be totally incompetent, like Flecktones, where I'd be tossed before intermission.


I'd trade places with either Sting or with John Mayer; no questions asked.

Things are just the way they are, and they're only going to get worse.

Generally whichever band i'm going to see / am watching / have just seen.

Major ones were Paul McCartney, RHCP, Pink Floyd and George Clinton. James Brown was too intimidating.

Elvis Costello, Cream (anything but Politician - don't think I could sing and play that one), Cactus, Ben Folds, and Sarah McLachlan. Nice lines all around.


I would enjoy a Beatles gig (tribute or otherwise).

I know all of their music well and could fill in for them at anytime. However, They don't know I exist so getting the call will not happen. Oh well!

Actually, I wouldn't necessarily kill Roger Waters, though I would slap him around till he sat down and let me play.


I'd kill Pratt for the job. :grin:



Hey...this could be a huge set up!


Could the statements made here be held against us in a court of law in the event that the respective bass players actually end up dead under suspicious circumstances? If so, I will now state that I have absolutely no intention of killing Guy Pratt and smackin-up Roger Waters. For the record!!!

My whole trick is to keep the tune well out in front. If I play Tchaikovsky, I play his melodies and skip his spiritual struggle. ~Liberace

I do 'Heroes' ok, so I'd tour with David Bowie. Sorry Gail Ann. Hmmm - with a bit of practice I could fake my way through a Stones concert - that would be pretty cool, and I'm about the right age too.


However, all I would wish for if I could tour (and play well enough!), is to play with a good singer-songwriter and tour the festival circuit. Maybe with Harry Manx?


Epi EB-3

G-K Backline 600

Any of these: City Lights, Jazz On The Vine, Adama, Jazz Express, and The Hot Borscht Band.


Then maybe Velvet Revolver or Winger if they ever reformed.

Very funny, Will. :cool:


I'll call you next time I need a sub....sometimes more than one of my bands get gigs on the same night.


Will you be needing the charts? :grin:


I hope your post doesn't mean my life is in danger. :confused:


Nah, on second thought it's a long drive to California from Kentucky. Maybe if you had a bluegrass gig or somthing.
