2. After their bassist died they did a couple studio albums and a live album w/ about 20 diff. bassists
Newsted, Les Claypool, Flea (I think), Mike Watt, Roger Glover, George Porter, Phil Lesh, Jack Bruce, etc. The studio albums are "The Deep End Volumes 1 & 2" and the live album is "The Deepest End" - it was recorded at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage and was something like a 4-hour show. It's pretty epic.
