I wish I were alive back then to see this

I've seen them live twice however (both in the 00s)
Cliff Burton! And bass is much more interesting and unique than guitar.

when I was 12 I got into KISS, and saw the “I was made for loving you” music vid and I couldn't help but notice Gene thundering on the low E and its octave at the beginning. So one day when I was in Florida with my dad, I entered a Best Buy and this one had a very good selection of instruments. I picked up a Fender Jazz Bass and started doing exactly what Gene was doing (octaving), and I loved it. From then on I was hitched. And up to this day I do not know how to play ANY songs by KISS.

I'm from the same town as Janick Gers, Hartlepool, my lead guitarist, Stevie B blew Gers out of the water, all Gers could muster as he walked out was, “Huh”. See Stevie B on YouTube, ‘TheRizingForce’
Chris (unspellable and unpronounceable last name) from Muse, cause Muse got me seriously into music, Chris made me think about learning bass, so I looked a great bassist and I came across a street bassist in Newcastle, Steven Oliver Jones, nickname OJay and I thought awesome!!!

Chris from Muse is an excellent bass player!
I was never inspired. I just tried it one day and it felt right. When you know, you just know.
As a child teen of the 80s, I was an MTV addict. Music was in my life constantly, Rock in particular. As I have grown, it has been with me always, I hit 5 or 6 headliners annually. I also worked lights, and push crew as a part time gig so I have been around Live shows for years. Bass, for some reason has always been what I was drawn to. I focused on the bass player and dug the grove. I waited til just last year to pick up my first and it is my new passion/hobby. My hero's of the 80's werent necessarily 5 star bassists but were mine non the less. Ross Valory, Roger Capps, Geddy Lee, and the Ox (well he was fantastic), the list goes on and on.
