Blur man chats bass playing

Stereotypes band's Alex James brings up bass playing in an interview.
Great deals on musical instruments
The subject of bass playing has been brought up by the Blur member Alex James in a recent interview.

A member of the Parklife, Tender and There's No Other Way singing group, James has been chatting to The Star.

The music instrument player has told the newspaper: "Playing the bass in a rock and roll band is a straightforward activity – you just have to stand still."

James, whose group have also racked up hits like Out Of Time and Beetlebum, added: "But planning a festival with bands, Peppa Pig and the best chefs in the world involves a lot of detail."

If music instrument players are wondering why he would be contrasting these two activities, they might not have heard of The Big Festival. The just-finished fest took place on James' farm.

Music instruments playing band Texas - behind hits like Say What You Want – were one of the acts who took to the stage there.
