This is really unfair. For a start, where is your proof that the bass lines were already written? I can think of only one song that springs to mind with a pre-written bass line that Nick copied, and that's Bones Hillman's bass line from the demo of Can't Carry On. Even when CH played SE songs Nick played his own bass line rather than copying Nigel Griggs. Listen to the SE version of This Is Massive and then the CH version. Isn't it a bit cheap to personally attack someone (by basically saying they had no creative input, it was all written for him) when you have (incorrectly as it turns out) perceived them as personally attacking someone they know very well, and we don't.[/qb]
Ouch! Eeker . Hey Camus. How are you doing? Wink

Bassically, all I was saying is that Neil Finn wrote the band's bass lines, because I remember reading something somewhere that Nick apparently used to take longer than Neil wanted to add the bass line to his songs... so Neil then wrote the bass line himself (which anyone would think, considering the majority of the Crowded House songs were credited to: N.Finn). I don't know when this was supposed to have taken place (before or after the sacking?) but if Nick's creative imput was so important, why didn't Neil give him some songwriting credit for songs like hole in the river? (which you claim "would be half the song it is today without Nick's input"). But if you think Nick wrote the bass lines to Neil's songs, then you could well be right. Do you think he "wrote" the bass lines to Paul's 4 or 5 songs also?
