I remember him giving the most hilarious interview to Bass Player magazine back in the 90s, where he made it clear that he was a guitar player at heart, not a bass player. I still remember one quote.. "And what's with all this adding extra strings to your bass? Any higher and it sounds like a piano; any lower and you'll shit yourself!"
The tears in next months letter column, oh God the gallons and gallons of tears from artistes and jazz musicians who were personally offended when Lemmy said that bass players have a huge inferiority complex. The only issues of Bass Player I didn't regret buying were that one and one with a bass lesson from Cliff Williams of AC/DC. ("Play some quarter notes. That's it really." It even had tabulature).
