Anyway about JPJ:
Tech skill 12/15
Good breakdown on the whole but I'd change it slightly.
I'd give JPJ 8 in influence.
Bassfreak used to argue that JPJ deserves a decent innovation score since he was 'one of the first to elevate the bass in rock'...but I'm not sure how true that is. I'd give JPJ maybe like 10/15 in Innovation.
Creativity no way in hell JPJ gets 13. 13 is demi-god territory. 13 is guys like Levin and the Ox who have very unique, memorable styles that you recognize instantly. JPJ isn't that. JPJ's 12 - he's really excellent, but he doesn't really have a unique 'voice' on the instrument. I'm set on this score.
Versatility...hmm...12/15 sounds reasonable.
Tech skill would be like 11/15
which leads, as a total, to...
53. Your JPJ total was 54.
Well, thanks for your input, those were good scores :-)
Dr Pik -
I know a shitload about bassists, don't doubt me. Never heard of Murray I guess because I don't really follow hard rock
If you want him on the list make a case!
