For a school project I need to come up w/nicknames for members of a band. Okay, I've got figgies for keys but don't have a clue re bass players or drummers. All help is appreciated.

Use Thunderfingers for the bass, it's John Entwistle's nickname.

or just make-up nicknames based off of your favorites for each instrument

i.e if you are a dickey fan go with "Blue Sky" for guitar or if you like Gvt. Mule go with "Woody" for base

Bassist: Low Bro, Lucky (as in lucky to be in the band)
Drummer: Slow Bro, Thunderfoot, The Dumber, Master Beater

I hung with a local band, in my youth, whose drummer's name was Richard.
Naturally being so young and crude, he became Dick, and they soon gave the bassist the nickname, Ballz.

I would call the bass player "Deep End". The drummer how about Butch's nickname "Freight Train?"
