ABOUT

I started playing guitar at the age of 8. Pretty much self taught. Didn't real play in the band scene until I was 34ish. I fell into a band of older, extremely talented musicians by accident. Started playing bass for them. Turns out I'm a better bass player than guitar. I mostly play by ear, but can follow just about anyone in any style. Recently diagnosed with colon cancer. I just want to be playing music as much as possible. I'd gig 5 nights a week if i had the gigs. If you're looking for a good , steady, devoted, serious, bassist , I'm the guy you've been looking for.
