    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.

    well, i don't think i'd go so far as to say the pistols were one of the "greatest" bands in the world at any given point of time - merely one of the most influential. what really caused them to make waves was their attitude more than anything else and were particularly reactionary in an otherwise dissatisfied, grimacing but nonetheless restrained, buttoned-up post-war england. as far as musicmanship goes, i really don't find any in vicious' playing or singing - it was really their lyrical content and "bollocks to the establishment" attitude that mmade them part of music history.

    There isn't a lot to listen to... They didn't have many albums. But they were the pioneers of the punk movement.

    Addendum: What I meant to say was not that the *** Pistols were amazing, but rather that "you can be commercially and critically acclaimed even though your bassist doesn't know how to play bass, how ****ing weird is that?"

    Popularity and success (actually how will you define success?) have got little to do with talent or skill.

    You become popular when you do stuff that appeals to a lot of ppl, and they support you for that.

    Most of the 90s boybands - all they did was playback singing on someone else's music.
    And giving live performances based on lip sync.

    They were mighty popular.
