    Favorite Genres:
    I like any music that has a great bass line.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    River City Swing (jazz standards); Canary Promise (original rock songs; some friends have said it sounds similar to Radiohead, while others say the Dave Mathews Band).
    Previously Owned Gear:
    The only gear I regret selling is an SWR Goliath Sr. I thought my rock-n-roll days were over and it set unplayed for a few years. It was big and heavy but easy to move because of the built-in wheels and rear handle. I've since replaced it with an Ampeg SVT 410HE and I'm happy with the trade-off.
    G.A.S. List:
    I wish I would have bought that early 1970s Fender Precision Bass for $500 at a music store several years ago. It was one of the most comfortable, nicest sounding, broke-in basses I've played. But you live and learn. I recently bought a Nash P-Bass relic and its as nice as the one I passed on, but it cost over 3 times the price!
    Influences and Teachers:
    #1 is Stanley Sheldon (bassist on Frampton Comes Alive), #2 is Joe Byrd (jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd's bass-playing brother .. as a youngster I couldn't play Charlie's licks on this records, but I COULD play Joe's bass lines .... that and breaking the G and high E srings on my guitar led me to play bass).
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Bicycle riding; collect AM tube radios.
