Bassist with quite a few bands from Northeast Ohio. I've played just about every type of music that you can think of. Music is like food to me, so I want to eat as many kinds as possible. I may have food that I like or music that I've performed more often, but I like to change up once in a while. You can't eat steak every day! Once in a while a PB & J is good too. So it is with music.
Bass is the foundation, like the ground upon which you walk. So long as it is solid, its not a big deal until its shaky or not there at all, and then you realize how important it is. I create the palette upon which you paint. It is not about me, but about the music that we make. Stop playing with musicians who don't listen, don't get it, or don't care. You've been playing with that crayola box of 12.... find out what it's like to play with the box of'll have colors for things you haven't even though of yet.
