Not sure how Joey Spampinato is doing with his Cancer fight. He played bass in NRBQ and also the band in the Chuck Berry movie Hail! Hail! rock n roll.

I can appreciate that having more headroom is an added benefit. There are other factors to consider, such as the room size and how much PA support there is. While recording is a different circumstance than the stage, it seems like a B-15 is a more popular choice than an SVT for those purposes. Frank Zappa, while not a bassist, also pulled off some great performances with just a little old Pignose. Big rigs are nice but after playing often at high volume, more subtle approaches start to gain in appeal, no pun intended.

Gee, I bet Cher would have fit right in with Deep Purple too!  ;D

More like Cher was dragging down Meatloaf. She sounded better with this Diamond and the late great Glen Campbell RIP.

I take it back, I was indeed talking about diamond head. That's the band who's tunes Metallica covered. King diamond is the guy who looks like a reject from Kiss.

It's a shame so many people equate louder and more watts with better. Maybe it's because I'm getting older I find music more enjoyable when it doesn't result in hearing loss after being at a performance.

Well whatever one thinks about Mr. Sobolewski, I think we can all agree this is a great Franki Valli song.

Looks like there were a couple versions at least.

Not sure where God City is exactly. I just knew about them from the album credits. I wouldn't feel too bad for King Diamond, they've been brought up on stage with Metallica a few times and also played Ozzfest. Btw they didn't write Blitzkrieg, my mistake.

They were a big influence on Metallica. You might recognize "Am I Evil?" or "Helpless"

If you're a fan of Diamond Head, they'll be a Saint Vitus Monday night.

If I was walking in the desert wearing black and carrying a guitar, I'd want a Coors light too. It's almost better than water. Since Pabst is a subsidiary of Miller Coors, my guess is the band is endorsed by them.

Mutoid Man recorded their last album at God City Studio in Salem MA. If you've ever been to St. Vitus bar in Brooklyn you may have crossed paths with the bass player who ran the front of the house sound there. Nick Cageao played an Aria explorer bass and they're supposed to be making his own signature model of it coming soon. Marty Friedman, formerly of Megadeth dug them so much he guested a solo on the title track of their new album War Moans. Totally worth checking out.

Up on the stage at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom with the $ bass. Mutoid man was great to watch and it was good to see Corrosion of Conformity with their original singer again. Danzig hogged all the sound check time so we had to make do with a quick line check. Was a great experience.
