    Re: FONZ vs. FLEA

    All this talk has gotten me to listen to some RHCP which I haven't done in a while, going through some of Californication right now ... anyone think Flea shines more on one of the songs from Californication than on others?

    Flea basically invented a style of bass, and can play any style that he wants. Flea is light years better than Stefan, no matter how much I like DMB.

    Wow...it really dosent take much to impress people. Maybe I should start slaping and poping, it may increase my sex life. I think this discussion should have been in the musician's section, all this is saying is that Flea is more impressive and stands out more, which we kind of already knew. I'm still waiting for sombody to tell me what's so hard about playing Right on Time...

    Good point. Flea has a distinctive original sound that everyone tries to immitate, but can't for obvious reasons.

    Flea did not invent slap bass. He developed his own voice that melds funks techniques with punks intensity. He's not light years better then Stefan either, they're at about the same level in terms of technique.

    Doesn't Flea use the "Stefan Lessard" Modulus Bass model?

    I voted for Flea, but I think him being better than Fonz has been exaggerated way too much.

    Well....RHCP music put flea in the front more...Fonz is just a steady good sound thoughout DMB, which isn't a bad thing, but it doesn't always show us how good fonz is....

    Flea! But only because it's such a driving factor of RHCP. He's so melodic on bass and comes up with guitar parts and riffs. You really notice it, whereas most bass you don't. Typically it's a good thing for bass to just go unnoticed, but Flea is an exception. Dude can play pocket, lead, riffs just so good.

    Re: FONZ vs. FLEA

    Flea is really good at what he does and Fonz is really good at what he does, but their styles don't really overlap. I could hear Fonzi playing on RHCP's mellower tracks, and Flea on the more agressive DMB tunes. However, the inverse would be a disaster.

    Stefan is the better player, no joke. Flea's tone sounds like shit. He's been a world famous bassist for how many decades now, and still can't play without buzzing the strings. Fonz may not be flashy, but he knows his job and does it well.

    Come on now. You think THIS is good bass playing?

    I think the more appropriate comparison would be Lamar Jackson (Flea) vs Jimmy Garoppolo (Fonz)

    If Im an NFL owner, Im taking Jimmy G

    Every time I see Fonz compared to Y from Z, people rumbustiously say: "Obviously Y!! Don't you ever listen to Z and expand your other tastes from DMB!!"

    Carter's talents nearly is mentioned like this too.
