    From The Nashville Cream

    POSTED BY SEAN MALONEY ON WED, DEC 12, 2012 AT 7:45 AM

    Nashville Cream: I grew up in Boston, I was raised on Aerosmith, and my first big question is: What was your first favorite local band when you were coming up?

    Tom Hamilton: People usually think of our past and our early days as playing in clubs, but the fact is that in Boston there were no clubs where you could play originals. You had to play Top 40 covers. We didn't get a lot of club gigs, so we played a lot of college mixers and frat parties and high school dances and stuff. It was an amazing time. ...

    Geddy Lee on Rush's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction: 'We'll Show Up Smiling'

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been a source of tremendous frustration for years in the Rush fan community. The group didn't appear on a ballot until this year, even though they've been eligible since 1998. It's caused some fans (most notably VH1 Classic's Eddie Trunk) to sour on the whole institution, but Rush themselves always claimed that this didn't bother them, and the patience paid off. Singer-bassist Geddy Lee chatted with Rolling Stone a few days after he heard that Rush had finally been inducted.

    I found an interesting article concerning tips for buying a used bass. I couldn't find much recent info on the author, Bruce Robinson, but here's an excerpt from his article:

    Looking for a good used bass? You should know some important facts:

    1) The neck is the single critical component. All others are easy and cheap (in comparison) to repair, including refinishing.
    2) Any bass neck can be ruined within a year (even weeks) if the bass has not been maintained--no matter how expensive the instrument.

    It’s been a rough 12 months for Chuck Rainey, who’s played bass with everyone from Louis Armstrong to Steely Dan, and wife Susan, Bedford residents for the last three decades. Actually, “rough” is far too tepid, too soft a word for the back-to-back blows dealt the couple so close to Thanksgiving this year and last.

    GENEVA — Grammy-winning jazz bassist Marcus Miller and several members of his band were injured when their bus overturned Sunday on a busy highway in Switzerland, killing the driver, police said.
