Bass players probably get the least recognition among rock musicians, and this show shines a bit of light on the craft and importance of the bass guitar. Geddy Lee Asks: Are Bass Players Human Too? recruits some (relatively) high-profile bassists, like Metallica's Rob Trujillo, Nirvana's Krist Novaselic, and everyone's favorite rock bassist, Les Claypool. But the series is content to just hang out around the house and follow its subjects while they do mundane activities. It's the equivalent of hanging out with a band in the studio: in theory it's cool, but you're mostly just waiting around for something to happen.
