I've seen that DVD and still stand by anything I said. I wasn't actually comparing him to Stu Hamm or Jaco Pastorius so much as to other death metal bassists, who get very little credit despite being on a similar level.

Like I said, I'm not trying to bag on Alex Webster so much as to make sure the description of him's more balanced, and to point out that there are a lot of other great death metal bassists who just haven't had the exposure, or a Wretched Spawn DVD of their own.
