Rusty, I'm no expert or will I even try to be, but where would you rate Nikki Sixx on bass? I love all of his stuff and when he is with Tommy Lee there is just something about the mix of those two that is just incredible in my opinion.

(And yes, I admit to being a Cruehead)

People put Nikki Sixx down because of his lack of talent. On "Too Fast for Love" this was partially true, because you can hear where he couldn't quite play the bass. It was his sheer rockstarness that carried his bassplaying on that album. But he got better...by "Shout" he was a true bassplayer...and the rest is history. The combination of Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx is easily the best rhythm section in metal if not rock. And for Tommy Lee, the guy is easily the greatest drummer this side of John Bonham...the only one imho who is close is Frankie Banali. But Tommy has this thing....this is the real reason why Motley Crue have stayed so good for so long (besides the talent of Mick Mars).

But yeah...Nikki started out shitty but became one of the greatest bassplayers in my book.

you must be kidding? tommy greatest drummer? he's a basic player with a few well-managed stick-tricks thrown in. he's not on the same level as peart or baker or any of the other "accomplished" drummers. tommy is a good drummer, he's not a great drummer.
