    Birthday:
    April 1
    Location:
    hollywood, baby......
    Occupation:
    a weird corner of the entertainment industry
    Current Setup:
    61 P (Olympic white)
    64 P (sunburst) - my main 'go to' bass
    97 (?) Longhorn reissue
    Ampeg Sb-12 (7868 version)
    Aguilar Tone Hammer 500
    Aguilar DB112nt
    Fender Princeton (circa 1970)
    Favorite Genres:
    post-war blues (before it turned into "blues-rock"), mid 60s garage (sonics, etc), beatles / stones, mid-70s NYC punk (thunders, dead boys) and the best music for bass players - soul and r&b music from 50s to the early 70s (from Larry Williams and Little Willie John to Eddie Floyd and Howard Tate to Dyke and the Blazers and Curtis Mayfield). And pretty much anything played by the holy trinity of Babbitt, Cogbill or Dunn
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    currently looking, but i can't imagine i'd join any band that would have me..... I want to find a blues band that remembers its all about the perfect 2+1/2 minute song, not long, loud solos. everyone seems to have forgotten that the old blues masters were trying to write/record hit singles (yes, the pop music of their day), not create background music for guitar solos.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Mesa Boogie 400 (not +) and two 1-15 cabs
    '70 Fender Jazz
    '71 (?) Gibson EB-3
    '77 Acoustic 120 head and 2-15 cab
    '62 Bass VI (first owner in 1986! )
    '57 Les Paul Special
    '63 Firebird 1
    '59 tweed Champ
    Hagstrom 335 copy
    several blonde bassman head/cabs, a dead perfect blonde tremolux head/cab and 1/2 dozen plexi Marshalls that helped pay the bills when I took a year off
    G.A.S. List:
    - 1, 2, or maybe 3 more Aggie DB112nt cabs
    - to build either Greenboy or BFM cabs
    - a super basic custom tube head, 4ea kt88s, w/ vol, bare minimum EQ (single tone control?) - sort of a beefed up Sunn 200 head; and it has to be hand wired in a first world country. (i realize that it won't be cheap) if that doesn't work out, either a D180 or a pair of BF Showman heads
    Influences and Teachers:
    w. dixon, p. chambers, d. dunn, j. meyers, j. jamerson, p. mccartney, all the james brown bass players, keith ferguson, pete farndon, billy rath, brad hallen and countless unknown blues, r&b, jazz and r'n'r bass players who tore it up in some dive club, never to be seen again
    Hobbies and Interests:
    fomenting socialist revolution

    Signature

    still looking for a "Dyke and the Blazers" tribute band......
