I too have noticed his absence - I thought maybe he'd gone to Vegas again and didn't tell us.

mark hoppus
and the bassist from greenday

Round these parts, those two aren't well liked, since they (especially Hoppus) are fairly crap at the instrument, or at least quite boring. However, you're entitled to your opinion.


I wouldnt disagree with you there. The guy from Greenday has had his little moments but he isnt in anyway spectaular compared to a lot of other bassists no matter how long they have been playing. He did better stuff before and up until they did Nimrod which was their last impressive album, Warning and American Idiot are not nearly as good as their old stuff by any means.

i used to like Nikki Sixx. i still do enjoy listening to Motley Crue though. probably the only metal band i can stand listening to these days.

Dr. Feel Good is quite a good album as well. smile.gif
