ABOUT

I'm an experienced bass player (49 yo) ready to consider getting back into an established band again! Recently left Yorkshire covers band Motus after a 15 year stint... I'm a fast learner, all styles, pro gear and a car with a really big boot. Ideally looking for a covers/tribute band just to get the enjoyment of playing live again. Function band would be my preference, but interested to hear from anybody! Also, anyone needing a dep player let me know happy to jump in short notice.

Influences

Too many to mention. I love rock, pop and soul. Favourite and most influential bass players are Pete Trewavas, Nick Beggs, Dug Pinnick, Geezer Butler, Sting, Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, Arion Salazar, John Paul Jones. In fact, all of them. I've robbed ideas off everyone at some point. That's what it's all about!
