3. They show him auditioning in "Some Kind of Monster" along with several others.

I can't recall the details now, but he was able to play some part with his fingers that no other bassist besides Cliff Burton could play without a pick. They proceeded to offer him a million dollars up-front

5. It's worth watching, if only for the audition clips. Some were really unexpected, non-metal bassists

The only one I can remember at the moment is the bassist for Alanis Morrisette

10. That was awesome

I liked that movie, and that was my favorite part of it. I stumbled across it channel surfing once at about 2:00 in the morning...couldn't turn away, and stayed up way too late!

7. He'll always be Suicidal Tendencies' bassist to me

I don't begrudge him taking the paycheck and I know he has the chops but I'd just rather hear him play in ST. OR his side project with Mike Muir, Infectious Grooves. (probably not coincidentally, Ozzy did a brief vocal for them on their song Therapy".)

8. i didnt know any of this

dude can flat out play a bass.
Didn't know he was ST bassist either.

Learn shit every day I guess.

On stage with Zack Wylde...damn...I'm straight as can be but i would suck Zack Wylde dry for the right to be on the same stage as him.
