ABOUT

I play bass. I sing when I can.

While I am doing these things, I am VERY conscious that my place in the band is NOT to hog the spot light, but rather to compliment the man in the spotlight with a very solid groove, and maybe some interesting accents.

Influences

My absolute favorite bass player ever is Chris Squire, followed closely by John Entwhistle. I love Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clark. Flea and Les Claypool amaze me.

Musically, I am all over the map, but I have to say my top bands are (in order):

1 - Yes
2 - Beatles
3 - The Rolling Stones
4 - Led Zeppelin
5 - The Who

It might seem that Yes being placed at the top of this list is wierd, but there is something about Yes that appeals to my mystical (or spiritual) side. When I was a kid I would spend hours listening to Close to the Edge or Tales from Topographic Oceans and almost feel like I was praying.
