New bands starting to take shape. Would be interested to hear from keyboard players. Guitar, bass and female vocals in place.
Looking to play an entertaining mix of rock, pop, funk & soul etc.

Alternatively, if you need a bassist then drop me a line. Probably would suit the older set, both socially and musically though you never know. I am retired so have plenty of spare time to learn stuff.
Open minded as to genre.
Will also consider starting from scratch with some experienced musicians.


About me:-
Experienced and competent bassist. Mostly played classic rock and blues.
Having founded both Turner Street Crash and TCR, both successful covers bands in South Wales. On coming north, formed the GREEN BULLET BLUES BAND with Gary M (guitar/vocals) & Garry H (harmonica/vocals), and Donny drummer Damien. We played plenty of gigs before the panic.
My past set lists have included the likes of :- Dr. Feelgood, Free, Bad Company, Cream, Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Family, basically anything with feel, spririt, fun, energy - classic pub rock stuff, blues, and classic rock but not the commonplace, athough old standards have been included from time to time.
GBBB played harmonica based blues, plus a bit of soul and rock, in a bluesy kind of way. Good fun - lots of 12-bar.

Bassists admired - JP Jones (for blues/rock), McCartney for timing and musicality, JJ Burnel for drive - there are so many good players so I just hope to get something of their styles when covering any songs.

Instrument experience:

Bass Guitar:


Fender (2JB 3PB), Gibson ('77 Recording bass), Rickenbacker ('83 4001), Musicman (bongo Spec ed 5-string), Wilson ('68 s/a), G&L (Asat), Lakland, Cort (fretless) basses; Roland amplification. Full PA. (MOST OF THESE ARE FOR SALE).
My Lakland bass was used by Rick Knapp of The Walter Trout Band on the 2008 UK Tour. I saw them in Cardiff and agreed to buy the bass when chatting with him after the gig, then was on the guest list at Shepherd's Bush Empire to pick it up after their final UK gig.
