JACK DANIELS?!!! Are you trying to burst my bubble, Mr. Chandler? Because that thin membrane's in lots of trouble after hearing that tale of debauchery.

Oh, let me guess: you were "method bass playing", right? You read the lyrics and decided to play the part, eh? Well, mission accomplished, Mr. Chandler. Mission accomplished.

Well, I guess this explains all those reckless "outside" notes in your performances. I begrudgingly admit that I still find your playing impressive, if for no other reason than your ability to always land on your musical feet Mr. Magoo style, given your drunken state.

I'll try not to let this revelation ruin my enjoyment of the DA discography. Seek help, Mr. Chandler.

as far as the bass parts go, that's not jack talkin', that's still all meSmile believe me, it wouldn't be possible , for me at least, to play those parts if i was loaded. jack just puts a little shine on the surface.

Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, Mr. Chandler.




































(I hope you people aren't taking me seriously. Honestly, your "JD" story just makes me love the album even more, Tim. Whiskey-fueled bass playing kicks AAASSSS!!!) Tongue

So, the "whiskey-fueled" comment soothed your nerves?

I'll have to remember that when you get all Mountain Dewy again.

i suppose i should've made this more clear. just in case anyone read this the wrong way (i know you're just joking, James, but someone else may be confused?...) when i said "drunken slow-gallop/swing", i didn't mean LITERALLY drunken, as in: Ed and i were, because we weren't. as i said a few posts ago, we couldn't have played it if we had been. it was 4 in the morning, jack and bud were helping out (ok Ed doesn't drink bud -- he has better taste in beer than that, but i don't remember what it was) and it just gave it that feel. that's all.

don't anyone panic. it's 14 years later (!...14 years later??! how did that happen?), i'm just fine and holding down a day job. and so is Ed. sheesh, people! Smile

and, wes! -- in 1994, during that tracking, i was using an Ampeg half stack (4 ten inch speakers) with my old GK 400B head (that thing is now 27 yrs old! it's an antique!! I'M an antique!!!)

recently, i've used, exclusively, amp simulators. the only recording i've done has been engineered by Derri, and he's really good at getting a sound with one or more of those modules.

FWIW, (and i think i've said this before but i'm going to say it again because it's about Gene, ) Gene, as a recording engineer, really loved low end and experimented with it a lot. he gave me many different sounds over the years, but the sound he captured on bibleland is the closest to what that rig sounded like as i stood in front of it on-stage at a live gig. i miss Gene more for other reasons, just simply as a friend, but i also owe him a lot for the sound he gave me on record.

I think that's one of the many things I miss about Gene, other than the fact that he took his music with him... The guy was a world-class engineer. On the recent reissue of Deliverance's "River Disturbance", Jimmy Brown went into how Gene miked the room and EQ'd everything upfront rather than doing a lot of artificial knob-twiddling after the fact. That impressed me a lot.

that's what i thought but i figured i'd ask anyway. i think you and i talked about such things years ago at cornerstone.

when you coming back to monrovia for a visit? Smile

I don't think anyone got the wrong idea, Tim. I thought the sarcasm and humor in my post was apparent, but I guess you've probably dealt with a lot of people who really are that ridiculously judgemental (emphasis on the "mental") over the years, being in the "Christian music" business. I was just trying to have a lil' fun. It's kind of a drag that you would even have to worry about clarifying such things, but I completely understand. I was in a band in the late 90's that was signed to one of the "major" Christian record labels, so I've seen the whackiness first hand. Heck, anyone who's gone to church has, for that matter...

I suddenly have a hankerin' to listen to some Bibleland. Rock on, Tim!

Tim, I gotta chime in and tell ya - you're the only bassist whose playing ever made me laugh out loud (and that's a good thing!). Maybe you're no Stanley Clarke technician, but for sheer creativity your performances rank right up there with Paul McCartney, Chris Squire, and anything Byrne ever told Weymouth to play.

James -- i know you were just having fun. i understood that and at the same time (i probably didn't need to) i wanted to make sure that someone wasn't having their Christian faith shakenSmile we're, obviously, all in this together.

please tell me the name of the band that you were in!

and wes, i may be in monrovia sometime this summer. maybe, maybe not, but if i am, i promise to post it before i leave.

wakachiwaka -- you're putting me in company i don't deserve, but i'm glad you get the laugh!

MF -- please crank it
