    Location:
    Los Angeles, the ashtray of CA
    Current Setup:
    Jerzy Drozd "Legend" fretless six-string semi-hollow body with magnetic and piezo pickups.

    Early F-Bass neck-through fretless five-string with passive single-coils.

    Pre-Gibson Tobias "Classic" five-string with Jim Williams preamp.

    Pearce B2P 600w stereo amp with SWR Goliath II cabs (multi-10"). Art Multiverb effects unit.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Currently working on an original progressive/fusion project.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    After almost forty years of playing, who can keep track?
    G.A.S. List:
    I don't buy into the American "more! more! more!" consumer ethos. Three nice basses are more than enough for me.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Bunny Brunel, Jaco (naturally), Jimmy Johnson, Yves Carbonne, Alain Caron, Percy Jones, Skuli Sverrisson, Gary Willis, Danny Thompson, Eberhard Weber, Jeff Berlin, Garry Goodman (lessons), etc.

    Spinning Chris Squire, Michael Rutherford, John Camp (of Renaissance), Geddy Lee, and Paul McCartney (all Ric players!) gave me the incentive to buy my first bass (a Ric 4001 - what else?) at age 13.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Also play finger-style acoustic guitar and cello. Hifi analog (vinyl LP & tubes) music reproduction.
