Woohoo, it’s arrived! Just need to decide where to, er, stick it!

Looking forward to seeing Mr Soady in B&T hoodie and baseball cap…the cap on backwards, ‘natch’!

Thanks Ross :) Personally I'd stick it right in the centre of the screen but most normal folks would tuck it low on the fairing where it's less likely to identify you as a reader of this nonsense.

Well if we're getting Ian draped out in hoodie and reverse baseball cap we may as well go all out. We need to source him a pair of jeans that he wears with the waist around his thighs and some gold chains and sovereign rings. I'm almost certain Ian will be a big fan of "Dubstep" and some "Drum 'n Bass", we could source him a boom box for his Norton.

I didn't realise you had such an accurate picture of me Ren. Actually this is more my style.

Ren,
I am a Grover to all forms of bass music. Give some good Dubstep, Drum’n’bass and any sort of Dub. Yeh Dance off the back beat.

As Duke Ellington remarked, “If it ain’t got that swing! It ain’t got a thing!”.

I too felt a little dizzy watching the video but I am most impressed with the quality and versatility of the 360 degree cameras. Cracking video Henrik thanks.

As for Dub... sorry, the whole genre entirely passed me by with a mere "what the hell?" from me. I like most things from folk music to thrash metal but not "dance" music.. or jazz.

Dear All,

To sit down at last in my own house. Herself of course has put a ribbon in her hair, a dash of perfume behind he ear and has asked me nothing of my day.

You would think all thoughts of motorcycles have gone. No! Could Paul Brown make me up a SS bash plate, I’ll just look on line for better shocks, there must be some one who does custom SS exhausts. Etc!

Sleep needed. Innova.

I've just listened to a bit of that. Absolutely dire. The bass player can't even hold a beat and some of his/her intonation's way off. Try some real music.

Funny, I am a devote dubhead to

I am not sure that Ian get the point

(about dub)

Or the history and culture behind

Let's take Lee Perry f.eks.

Assisted her by late Robbie Shakespeare (bass)

You could call Robbie non-talented also

But how comes that Dylan, Grace Jones, Sting, Stones, did call Sly and Robbie to make the foundation to some of the tracks ?

I love Ian’s tracks too. The second I sent the Personal Dub reference I thought Oh! No. All art is subjective. I would hate this to turn into an argument where one persons preference is argued to better than another person’s preference.
My Dub reference takes me back to smoking huge spliffs in the car park in a mk1 Escort waiting to get with some young one winding her waist in the Jamaica Club. Or laughing playing Doms with geriatric Rastas.
Music is owned by each of us in our experience. The music I made love to maybe the music your father beat you to!

I love that track. Lee “Scratch”Perry the man. All that Black Ark stuff.
Noel Redding ended his life living in Clonakilty. Hendrix often played the bass parts on recording himself. It is rumoured he wanted to replace Redding with Billy Cox ie Band of Gypsies.
I preferred Willie Dixon on bass on the 1954 “Hoochie Coochie Man” but that’s only me. I do love stand up.
Jack Bruce was like his peer Charlie Watts a jazz musician who adapted to rock. All a bit loud and fuzzy for me.
Charlie Mingus? Danny Thompson? Sly? Family man Barret? Flabba (despite Ian’s reservations)?
Leo Williams? Bill Black?

The list of Bass players each of us loves is huge. Maybe we should focus on our motorcycles each with our own sound track playing in our heads.

Good to see a wide range of tastes! Henrik is right I don't get the point of dub. But then my parents didn't get the point of the Rolling Stones.

Yes, Noel Redding was a sad character who thought he was a better guitarist than Jimi. The fact is he wasn't even as good a bass player. Mitch Mitchell was a decent drummer however, and as Mick says from a jazz background like Baker and Watts. Although I'm not a drumming fan I've recently watched a series (on Sky Arts I think) about the art of drumming that opened my eyes. Baker on the Crossroads clip is sublime.

Mind you I do like that Sly & Robbie but have always been a sucker for reggae.
