Homer Simpson Prefers Bass Guitar

Homer Simpson follows in the footsteps of "what's-his-name from The Who or that guy from Led Zeppelin who wasn't Page, Plant or Bonham."

Homer Simpson follows in the footsteps of "what's-his-name from The Who or that guy from Led Zeppelin who wasn't Page, Plant or Bonham."

Earlier this year, we rejoined when Judas Priest appeared on an episode of The Simpsons, until the backlash of the show calling them a "death metal" band arose. But, they quickly made good with an apology on the chalk board the following week.

A recent episode of The Simpsons focused again on music, this time with Homer Simpson picking up the bass guitar in an episode titled "Covercraft." Homer realizes he has the "muscular stumps of a bass man" that will bring him on par with the great bassists like "what's-his-name from The Who or that guy from Led Zeppelin who wasn't Page, Plant or Bonham."

Once Homer picks up the bass, he takes it home and shows it off to his family…

Homer eventually forms a band with  Kirk Van Houten, Reverend Lovejoy, Dr Hibbert and Apu. Longtime fans of the show will point out that he was already in a band with Apu called The B-Sharps, but the Simpsons aren't exactly against borrowing from old ideas.
