ABOUT

48 years in classic rock (wasn't "classic" 48 years ago), many bands, some cross-country touring. I'm interested in having fun and making a few bucks playing locally. No more touring for me. I play a strong bottom, play outside the lines when it feels right, but I'm a team player, not a virtuoso or a soloist. I'm fairly eclectic, I like all types of hard beat music. Not looking to hobby, I already do that at home. Looking for a casually gigging band, start-up is ok as long as a goal is involved. People person. I can be a smidge bombastic...

Bass influences: JP Jones, Entwistle, Boz Burrell, Andy Fraser, Tony Stevens, Tony Franklin, Rob Grange, Geddy, Phil Chen, and many many more I could never keep up with...
