Scott! Can some one tell me how Matt was a douche


Um, for one he sued the band. I like Scott the most, but they were all appropriate for their timelines.
Scott is devastating!
Does this really need to be discussed?
Edit: Dorian Zelaya, just watch videos of his stage presence. He acts like weezer was a grunge band.

Better question: If the three of them got into a brawl, who would be the last man standing?
this is seriously such a stupid discussion. yeah, i'm going to come to matt sharp's aid, but you guys are idiots. he had so much personality, like him or not, he was a huge part of the image of the band in the 90s. the tone of his bass was great, he was the only one of the front 3 with true stage presence until brian got more comfortable, and his basslines were great.

listen to pinkerton, his bass parts are all over the place, they add so much to that album.

and why isn't scott as good? HE DOESN'T EVEN PLAY HALF THE BASS LINES TO THE PINKERTON SONGS. watch a video of him playing el scorcho, he's just playing the root notes, it's idiotic. matt's part had so many fills and scales and interesting nuances, scott's version is a snooze fest.

that makes me angry - how could scott treat pinkerton in such a way?

MATT SHARP

mikey welsh! love the vibe he gave the band. while matt is absolutely classic, and shriner is absolutely DEVASTATING, mikey is just so stylish and cool and blatantly stoned! and hilarious! while on Green Rivers restricted his playing as much as possible (although he busted out some great ascending chords on DLG and laid down the perfect groove for IITS), if you listen to the other stuff he was doing at the time, he was just so perfect for weezer, at least with the poppy stuff they were doing. the fills in o girl, the way the bass soars in TLTT's bridge "WHY!", the great melodic lurches in slob, the chorus line in sister song, and so on. and he laid down such a classic bass line for butterfly. yes, HE invented the roaming butterfly bass, not shriner. and yet again, just the attitude he gave weezer, what a bad ass. especially with the punk pop/skater style W had when they came back in 2000. definitely my fave weezer period and mikey makes it.

case closed! without a doubt one of pop/rock's greatest bassists ever!

Gotta agree with Mikey, such a badass, and i love the look and attitude he added to the band, the Pop/Skater/Stoner age that sorta defines the early 2000's... but i guess that's the style i'm into nowadays. Gotta love Scott though, like, how can you not love this? Plus you gotta love the 50's-60's Fender P-Basses
