I glad you mentioned that. I got into metal through Whitesnake and I use 'metal' loosely there... Whitesnake was more of a gateway band. Maiden was the one band that got me into real metal. Metallica was definitely metal. Anthrax and Megadeth too. In fact,that was my metal universe the first couple of years.
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
