I love the sound of JJ's bass, this is what attracted me to the band in the 70's when I heard Peaches on the radio. JJ Has a great style.

Well correct me if I'm mistaken, but having studied the subject from just a few feet away on many occasions, I feel confident that it is indeed J.J. and not some interloper who thumps his bass a couple of times and then runs into that down yer back shiver intro to Heroes.
In fact I would happily pay my 20 odd quid to witness this moment alone.

Turn the centuries Turn, very underated bass line - melodic and haunting. I played this to my non-stranglers loving bass playing mate and he went out and bought all the lads 1977-1983 CDs.

I've been listening to quite a few bootlegs recently and where 'Cocktail Nubiles' goes into 'Toiler' is quite simply stunning. The bass intro makes the hair on the back of your neck stand bolt upright. :smt035

Was watching Battersea t'other night and to witness JJ's playing in 'Grip' was phenomenal. A master at the top of his game.

Dead Ringer is more powerful than Peaches, but Peaches is more 'ear catching'. Dead Ringer's bass line is clearly derived from Peaches, so less marks for originality. Nice 'n' Sleazy is my personal favourite - actually the bass on the entire Black and White album is awesome!

Thats exactly what I was talking about. Just watched that clip 3 times and I think it must rate as one of the all time great moments of rock n roll.
Just superb.:smt023 :smt035
