These guys are one of my favorites that I've discovered in the last 5 or so years!! I just broke out De-Loused in the Comatorium and I can never get enough of the rhythm section of Flea and drummer Jon Theodore on that album. Amazing work! Juan Alderete has since come in and been more than equal to the task and Thomas Prigden was from another planet on the drums. Unfortunate that he was let go. Luckly I got to see his last show with them at War Memorial in Nashville back last October. They take you on a real journey. Nearly epic. PEACE!! :clap:

I've heard that omar wrote the bass as well as the guitars, this may or may not be true.

I'm going to have to check into these guys. You're like the eleventy-fifth person to say about how great they are, but I've yet to hear them.

Omar who? Omar Hakim? He's a drummer.

I'd seriously suggest to check out Victor Bailey, who got his roots from Jaco Pastorius. Jaco was basically the fatherhead of the funk/jazz for the bass.
Sure Bootsy Collins also got famous with some funk, and a whole load of other people, but few I know got as famous as the above two!
