I'm sure that was his reasoning.

:rolleyes:

If anything, I think his being Asian probably made Billy cautious about hiring him simply because of the people like the OP. I'm glad he did, though. i adore jeff

They perform the exact same role. The only difference is that they aren't allowed to talk to the crowd or even attend interviews. Does it matter whether theyre black and 6 ft 8 with an afros or 80 year old midgets? They have no real input when compared to BC n JC.

where's that thread where some dude claimed he saw D'arcy on stage
or overhead someone say that Ginger was D'arcy
something

generally people are idiots
i'm gonna assume that Jeff, Ginger & Lisa were hired because they are Christians with values. AKA not after the "sex, drugs & rock and roll" dream. but the christian rock dream, whatever that may be.

There are a lot of great bassists and guitarists out there.
I do find it curious that the best bassist and guitarist for the new band happened to be female and of Asian decent, respectively.

I would guess that Billy and Jimmy deliberately looked for a female for one of the band members because having both genders in a band lends something to the look and feel of the band.

Naturally, the woman would have to play bass because it's easier than guitar :)

I totally approve of keeping the bassist female. I figured that would be the case. The part that made me raise an eyebrow was that Jeff was of Asian descent. Was he truly the best candidate? I'm not saying he wasn't, by any means. I just find it curious.

It's actually a common misconception that bass is easier than guitar. It's easier to play bass badly and get away with it than to play guitar badly and get away with it, but being truly great at bass is incredibly difficult.

I'm disregarding the woman comment because I'm sure you were only joking. Just wanted to point out that if you really think bass is easier, you've never really tried to go above and beyond what's expected with it.

Thank you for noticing this. Guitarists have effects to cover their shit up...in some cases, mistakes sound "inspired." You can't pull that crap on bass.

Yes, I was joking, both the bass being easy part and the woman part...though like you said, it's easier to go from zero to bad on bass than it is on guitar.

I wonder if Billy always has female bass players because women are more rhythmic than men...or because he's a pervert.

I doubt it, but surely having ANYONE replace Billy would make 95% of the clowns on Netphoria ecstatic, since a lot of the donkeys on here credit Billy with 100% of everything they don't like about the band and 0% of everything they do like.

bass is harder because the strings are way fucking thicker and you have to push them further to make contact with the fretboard.

however, if you need to get some frustration out, in a musical way, there's nothing more satisfying than a bit of a thrash around on bass... probably because of those differences.

secondly... isnt jeff only HALF korean, and his father's not asian? schroeder isn't exactly a traditional korean name.

Yeah, Schroader sounds Jewish. Let the anti-semitism begin :)

Everyone should get over it. The main things he has in common with James are that he can play guitar and has very little input in the songwriting or the studio work.

Though if Jeff starts recording crap b-sides (The Boy, etc.) and getting the occasional lackluster song on an album (e.g. Go), the conspiracy WILL be proved correct.
