Agreed, that was very insightful. Of course its not to say that a metal bass player isnt talented enough to lead his respective band, its just traditionally not done. Far too often people say another musician is "better" (whose to say who is better than anyone else anyway?) based on chops and not on musicality or compositional skill. Thats why funk players are looked upon in a more positive light than metal players, they typically lead the band (along with the drummer of course) and do so in a very musical fashion.

And Posessed were around before cc or anyother death band, They were the FIRST death band anb many belive they invented the phrase Death Metal, i sugest and death metaler to buy seven churches. and death came befor cc aswell.

haha I totally over-reacted by calling you an ass.

Anyway, Alex is cool. Rex is badass...just because. He is just a badass.

hey cattle idiot.
Just because you can play some of the songs he writes doesnt mean that he isnt as good as people put him up to be.
If you had to play a 3 hour set would you make all of your songs beat the shit out of you?
have you ever heard claypool just jam?
hes fucking amazing.

Thumbs up

I think the whole god damn band is great...Alex Webster is a great bass player, we all know that. But the other members seem to be underrated...George has a sickening brutal voice. Jack was a pretty good rhythm and lead player. (I'm not too sure about Rob, he's alright I suppose) Paul is a good drummer, very powerful, good timing, good rhythm...his only problem being that he doesn't do anything too fancy that stands out. And most of all...PAT O'BRIEN !!! .....Check out the Wretched Spawn DVD if you haven't seen Pat in action...he's an amazing guitarist, fantastic rhythm and lead, a great shredder, love his solos. I also love his use of obscure & unusual scales/arpeggios, gives off a very creepy, sinister vibe.

~Cheers

Thought I'd give this thread a long overdue bump... here's an interview with Alex. He switched to SWR.

Got to play on an SWR-head at some gig once, DAAAAAAAMN they got a solid tone. Seriously, you could probably turn treble and bass all down and mid all up and you'd still get a punchy sound out of it.
