Melvins Discussion / Re: Melvins With Steven McDonald On Bass
« on: January 08, 2021, 08:29:24 PM »
Steven McDonald will be a member of the Melvins until the end.

1) He plays in Redd Kross and Melvins love Redd Kross.
2) Dale plays drums in Redd Kross and Dale loves Redd Kross.
3) Steven lives in Los Angeles, making it very easy to work with.
4) Steven is a genuinely nice guy.
5) Steven is a badass bass player
6) Steven can sing.
7) Steven can write.
8) Steven does not have drinking or drug problems
9) Steven is a professional musician and is very roadtested
10) Steven's stories entertain the fuck out of Buzz
11) Steven likes the gig

I could go on and on and on. I am a huge fan of Steven McDonald.

Easily the best streaming event I have seen. Entertaining all around. Really well made. I would watch a weekly version of this.

Scott was such a super cool guy. I saw KARP one time and I saw The Whip one time - he blew my mind!!!! For the last part of his life he was working as a bartender at a bar in Seattle called The Rebar that my band used to play at a lot. He ended up really being a great guy and a fan of the band. It was devastating to a LOT of people in Seattle when he died. I think he was loved by many.

No Talent is a band from Montesano, WA. That's the "No Talent" spray painted on the Melvan. Some of the members of No Talent are part of Starlite Agency, the Tribute II collaborators on "Night Goat". The Night Goat vocals where performed inside the Melvan, and sound great!

I'd love to hear any No Talent Melvan stories! I can always add any anecdotes to the Melvan Tribute "Video Details".

Thanks all involved!

I saw them open for the Melvins at the Off Ramp in Seattle on the Houdini tour in 1993.

We should pool all of our money together and share it amongst ourselves. Each member gets to wear it for one week and then ships it to the next member. My head is physically too big. But you can all take my idea and run with it.  8)

I haven't listened to the whole album yet. But I was pleased there is a cover of Shock Me by KISS on it!

LA is a short trip from Arizona!

I should have moved out to LA just to see the Melvins, I've been kicking myself ever since I realized this years ago.

It was one of my reasons for moving here!

Best Melvins "musicians" which informs their bass playing and therefore makes them the best bass players are a three way tie.

Mark Deutrom - Hell, let's face it, he is also the best Melvins guitarist. Great producer, great composer, best stage presence with the angry cowboy thing. Really understands music and it shows in the songs, albums, and concerts that he was a part of. Plus - he is a really fucking nice guy, I mean super cool. And his album The Blue Bird kills. Mark was part of the second great era of the Melvins (after the Lorax / Joe era).

Steven McDonald - If Gene Simmons and Paul McCartney made a baby it would be Steven McDonald. Really, really great bass player with a history unique to him. I love that his stage mannerisms are so over the top and actually irritates Melvins fans, as a KISS and Redd Kross fan, I am all for it. His bass playing is killer. And did I mention that Steven is also one of the nicest fucking guys in the world?

Trevor Dunn - Mix a virtuoso bass player and a Melvins fan and you get Trevor Dunn. I mean, this guy is deeeeeeeeep, like New York Avant Jazz scene deeeeeeep. And he loves the Melvins. And he loves Kiss. And he can play upright bass and electric bass. Also, a super fucking nice guy.


I also love Kevin (what a fucking weirdo bassist!), Pinkus (another weirdo!), Joe (weirdo!), Jarred (super nice and a weirdo!), Lori (who picks a bass like Lori?).

Matt Lukin was ok at the time.

Most OMINOUS Bass sound goes to Jarred though.
