A solid dependable and committed bass player with bvs. I have played all genres over my career but prefer classic, hard rock, country rock.
I'm looking for an originals band primarily but have loved my cover band career also and have always treated both with equal passion and commitment.
I have always been a bass player since I was 7 years of age and never wanted to be anything else.

The reason I picked up the bass was Paul McCartney which led me to trace backwards to James Jamerson.
I have always loved the fluidity of players like, Jack Bruce, Andy Fraser, John Entwistle to provide that solid bottom but with wonderful melodic fills and runs. Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith and the formidable Billy Sheehan are also high on my list.
I was thrilled by Mark King as a kid (reads wrong I know) but never really studied slapping too much but have always admired his playing and the skill.
