Today I was just doing some Googling about all this legendary gear and I came across an interview with Guitarist Magazine he did back in 2004 and I was struck by something he said:
"Here's a story that shows how low-tech I really am: I went into an instrument store in New York, and this guy recognises me and says, Oh man, I'm a bass player and I've always wanted to know what strings you use. And I swear I wasn't trying to be funny when I said, Kind of long, shiny ones. And I actually don't know - it's not really important to me. I will play on anything and everything because I'm genuinely not too fussy about gear. The playing and the song are more important than the equipment."
If one of the most successful and influential singer/songwriter/musicians doesn't even really know (or care) what he's using, I really need to stop caring if my 335 is Nashville or Memphis
