Dipping into unfamiliar waters.
A few months ago, some guy told me that Sid Vicious (The bassist for the *** Pistols) couldn't play bass. Now there's some bass topic in the gear forum and it reminded me of that conversation.
And I looked it up online and it seems it was true.
So... you can be in one of the greatest bands of all time and not know how to play the instrument you hold? That's interesting, isn't it? Like no one even gives a ****. How the **** do you pull that off? Bass guitarists everywhere should weep.
