Perhaps we should pass this onto the man:

For all of you out there who have asked, here are 10 good reasons why Bass players Rule'

1. Bass players are economical (has usually had the same battery in tuner since new)

2. The bass player is the only member of the band able to talk on a mobile, drink beer, have a cigarette and chat up a member of the audience during the opening number

3. The bass player can solve any instrument problem, mechanical or electrical, using only a beer mat, fag lighter and gaffer tape

4. A bass player is always available to advise the drummer on the correct tempo for any song

5. Bass players may only have 4 strings but they are longer and thicker than the other guitarists

6. Bass players are allowed to sleep during the slower numbers

7. Bass players are allowed to slap their instruments

8. Bass players always have an amp bigger than one person can carry

9. Bass players are always very professional, they can begin the 2nd set with a smile despite losing strap, lead and then forgetting to turn Amp on

10. A bass player can do a walking bass line without ever moving his feet

Are you taking into account that is a British list and that, over here, a fag is another name for a cigarette?

I did, but then I discarded it as nonsense and posted my statement.

A beer mat is a type of coaster that is found in British pubs. They're made of cardboard and usually advertise the brewery that owns the pub or anti-drink driving warnings.

Gaffer (or gaffa) tape is that silver (or black) cloth based tape that I think you call duct tape.

OK, but I warned you they're old... Embarassed

Manager (to bass player chasing and screaming at a roadie around the stage before a show): "What is going on here!!!"

Bass player: "This roadie knocked one of my strings out of tune!"

Manager: "Soo what's the problem? Just re-tune it!"

Bass player: "He won't tell me which one!"

Nyuk nyuk nyuk

OK:

Q: How do you get a bass player off your front porch?
A: Pay him for the pizza.

Q: (from a drummer--not me) How do you keep a bass player from staggering around on your front porch?
A: Shoot him again!

Q: (from drummer again) How do you make a bass player feel useful to the band?
A: Tip him for the soda he brings you.

Wha wha whaaaaa
