Top 5 band members that are neither the lead singer or the lead guitarist (well..there goes Jim). (feel free to tell us why you chose them too!) Here we go:
Number One/A: Rick Burch of Jimmy Eat World- BASS-Rick is pretty much bad ass on bass. Plus he is seriously, probably the nicest person you will ever meet. Ever. Such a stand up guy. He rocks out with the best of them.
Number Three/C: Dougie Payne of Travis-BASS-I can't say enough great things about Travis. I first saw them in the late nineties. They opened for Oasis. I was skeptical when they came out but they blew me away! The very next day following the show I went out and purchased two of their albums and fell in love with every song. Since then Hubs and I catch them every time they come to the states and keep up on their musical progress. Dougie is very interactive at live shows with the fans, keeps everyone laughing and he rocks out with the best of them. Love, love, love him.
Number Four/D: Brian Bell of Weezer-Rhythm Guitar-Brian Bell is a pretty radical guitar player. He keeps Rivers in check and helps write some incredibly catchy-ass songs. I have never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Bell but he always has this amazing smile on his face and seems so pleasant and warm. It's eye catching and makes you smile while listening/watching.
Thanks for reading! Hope you play along!
