New Bass man, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES? Do you mean Robert Trujillo? I've heard some of that guy's soloing, he's one of the best rock bassists in the world! Please tell me it's him, it's time Metallica got back to kickin' arse like they used to before they went really mainstream.
As for Kirk, everyone here seems to put him down 'cause lots of teenage rock guitar fans have been under the illusion that he was the best in the world 'cause they haven't heard many other talented players, like, for instance, his ex-teacher, Joe Satriani. But Kirk does kick lots of ass, I don't think it's fair he gets such a ribbing.
If I couldn't laugh at myself how could I laugh at someone less ridiculous?
