EXACTLY.

Jack Bruce was very underrated, Cream were all about the riffs, but unlike many bands, their riffs were bass driven..... Clapton was just the icing on the cake, Bruce was the beating heart behind the music.

I hate any sort of music where it`s obvious one or several of the musicians are just doing it for one big ego trip , thats why I don`t listen to jazz.

First & foremost i`m a fan of songs , not guitars , not bass , not drums ...SONGS.

If a song is bass driven , fine
If a song is guitar driven , fine makes no difference to me.

Listen to any New Order song , Peter Hook plays his bass like a guitar but it`s never intrusive or detrimental to the song.He doesn`t feel the need to demonstrate how great he is every few minutes, he also writes great songs too.

I wonder if him not showing off all the time is why nobody in here has mentioned him , hmmmm.

I'm not a fan of songs myself, i prefer music.

Excuse me, did you just call jazz a big wanking ego trip?... Dear god.... Is that really what you think?... What are you?... A rock n roll and nothing else type?.... A little narrow minded are we?... If all you like is that kinda thing, then fine, but you don't have to insult every kind of music you just don't happen to like and call it crap.

Why do you keep refering to it as showing off and ego driven, it bugs me. Some people talk about how a lot of music lacks talent but you're saying that these people need to dull themselves down? No. I'm all for it. Play your best. Impress me.

Call me stupid but i`d rather hear 5 great songs in a gig than a 20 minute bass / Guitar/ Drum solo

Who said anything about shows? I'm talking about on an album. I want people to show their talents in the studio and make great music.
