ABOUT

I started playing with a group of friends that turned into a band (The Regressors) and have played with them for 14 years. We are currently on permanent vacation, but I am jonesin' to play. I am a Bass Man who enjoys backing vocals and taking a lead at times. I have been keeping busy playing rhythm guitar and singing and playing drums, but love the Low End. I am self taught and play by ear. I am not a theory player but can play with cheat sheets. I am looking to broaden my horizons, would like to play locally, am not able to tour the world (yet), and open to nights (day job and kiddos). I get my kicks by playing out live.

Anybody looking for a side project? I have always wanted to do a Clash/Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros project. Big Fun!

Influences

Where to start? My musical tastes are all over the place. It all depends on mood. I enjoy almost all of it minus gangster rap and country. My favorite bands/muscians are Bob Marley and the Wailers and the Clash. Bob Marley was a Musical Prophet and Joe Strummer is my Idol. Bass influences very from Ashton Barrett, Paul Simmonon, Mike Gordon, Phil Lesh, Geezer Butler, Cliff Burton, Les Claypool, Sting and Bruce Thomas
