You have to understand that the bass guitar is the party instrument.



This is an excellent quote from one of the most important dudes of punk, KEITH MORRIS. You see, Keith was one of the founding members of Black Flag, and the longtime frontman of the Circle Jerks. You might say, he has a way with words.

"You have to understand that the bass guitar is the party instrument. It only has four strings. If you see a bass player playing five strings, take your shoe off and throw it at him. The bass guitar only having four strings, that just means less to worry about and you can become more excited, you can become more animated, you can jump around, you can bust out your Gene Simmons moves, all that kind of shit. "


Do yourself a favor and read the rest of the interview [
here]. He talks about a new band that he has started called OFF!
