A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

RIP Tom. GP has never been the same since he left. Also, he hired Jim Roberts to start BP, which has never been the same since Jim left.

Yeah, I ended my subscription probably around 15 years ago. I got tired of the same old ads and inconclusive product reviews.

Believe it or not, back in the days of Tom Wheeler and Jim Roberts, GP and BP occasionally gave a negative review to a product.

I also remember they'd review an album with some rating of the bass too.  If I recall, Rick Savage got a C- for Hysteria :P
