The bass player is arguably the least appreciated of the band members. Just ask Darryl Jones.  The Rolling Stones' bass player (well...for touring purposes anyway) Don't look for him to be in any promo pictures with Mick & Keiff.

After Metallica mixed out all of the bass from "...And Justice For All"...Jason Newsted could've very easily been a founding member of "Low Riders: Bass Player Support Group."

"What's he do, exactly?"

"So it's a guitar....but harder to hear in the mix?  I don't get it."

"Why's he staring at the drummer?"

For all you unappreciated bass players out there...there's help.

"It's not just a safe space -- it's a safe bass space."
