    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 (prior to "blues-rock"), mid 60s garage (sonics, etc), beatles / stones, '76 NYC punk (thunders, dead boys) and the best music for bass players - soul and r&b music from 50s (ray charles) to the 60s (stax, motown, james brown) to the early 70s (curtis mayfield)
    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. (think JV, NOT SRV)
    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 perfect tremolux blonde 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 tube head, 4ea kt88s, w/ vol, bass and treble controls - 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

    just one night playing in the 1965 James Brown band, and I could die happy
