I have terrible stage fright playing in front of others (classical guitar) so I can't really talk, but he has a distinct way of dragging behind the beat that's hard to listen to. It reminded me of those remixes where people purposely de-sync popular songs.
David Wain has some great ones (where does he find the time?), especially You Shook Me All Night Long. davidwain.com/remixes/
Oh, man, that shit is brilliant! Where does one go to find more of it?
I have a good friend who's the nicest, most laidback person on the planet, but whenever he hears Africa he'll get this look on his face like he's about to go in to a murdering rage.
Now I know what to show him the next time we're having some beers together.
I definitely have songs that do that to me. If I hear Jason Mraz "I'm Yours", I'm about to flip the table over. Any similarly twee ukulele coffee house garbage does that too me as well. If I were a sleeper agent, it would be my kill command trigger.
In a discussion about whether Roger Waters is a good or a bad bassist:
In fact if I were looking for a bassist for my band for either a gig or a recording session for one of my originals, there are three I regularly play with that I would call before him, and one of them used to play in a Pink Floyd cover band (and we actually went to see Roger's last tour together)
Sorry, but who cares about your band?
I am discussing evaluating someone's ability as a bassist, which I most regularly do for the purpose of deciding whether to use someone on a gig or session. And he is not on the level of folks who care enough about my band to often play for me even for free.
If none of those three were available I might use him, but would have to dumb down the setlist to make it so he could cut it. And it's kind of relevant that he isnt as good as my friend who plays with a Floyd cover band.
Roger's crushed, I'm sure. He really needs that gig.
Actually we just finished a 19 track CD of my original music, and I would definitely take lots of the bass parts on that over any of Waters' parts. That is one of the gigs I would have preferred my main player for. He teaches classical bass as well as playing in orchestras, jazz bands, musicals, rock bands, solo recitals and was nominated for a Grammy. Super talented guy who came up with great parts. No way I would have preferred Waters on the session. If you were interested I could let you hear some.
Sounds boring to me. And you're doing self promotion in a thread about Roger Waters. Hooray.

It’s also kind of relevant that Roger Waters has no idea who you are, and would likely have zero interest playing music with you.
