From what I can tell it just seems like the lazy way out of actually learning the instrument. I get it a lot of people who use picks on bass are or were originally guitarists, and I guess if that's what you're used to then fine, but it just doesn't sit well with me.
i will pick your bass all night long

There will be no mercy when the reckoning comes. Only fire.

Most bass players are just the least common denominator of the guitar players so they get stuck on bass.

It's unfortunate too. Writing bass well takes a lot of finesse, but since you can just hide lazy bass in the mix a lot of bands ignore it. Strong bass can make all the difference, but everyone wants to be a guitarist.

Fuck yeah. It's been too long since I put them on. I think I'll do that today.

Sami Hynninen from Reverend Bizarre is my favorite bassist, personally. He might not be the best ever, but it was Reverend Bizarre that initially inspired me to take up bass.
