1. A territory between India and Pakistan, the subject of international dispute between the two countries.

Short for "Bass Guitarist."

I must take issue with the idea that Punk Bassists are no good, because I can name at least three who excelled: Jah Wobble, Peter Hook, Norman Watts-Roy. QED

The first great bassist in rock music was John Entwistle (RIP).
The greatest exponent of the fretless bass was Jaco Pastorius (also RIP).
The greatest living bassist is Flea (not RIP yet ;-) ).
