    G.A.S. List:
    AMP-B420 amplifier head...I have the same preamp as the '420 (SL-1) and an AMP 8000 power amp wired and cased together, so maybe I can take the '420 off of my wish list...more powerful with the same preamp... whaddya think?
    Influences and Teachers:
    Victor Wooten, Jaco, Stanley Clarke, Peter Cetera, Paul McCartney, uncounted bluegrass recording bassists, Willie Nelson's, Charlie Daniel's bass players, and any other bass player who has taste and does not overplay and/or can tastefully play his or her ass off...anyone who's a member of an ensemble who does his job so well to seem almost unnoticeable. As long as a player does it with taste it doesn't matter to me if it's complex fusion or simple 1-4-5 playing...it's cool with me. Also, my private music teachers, George Haller and Jim Shaner...instilling in me a good, pragmatic, and commercial attitude about my music...as well as my former bandleaders, Dave Bilger and Sonny Miller for allowing and helping me to grow in my skills in different directions over my 40 years gigging; may all of them rest in peace.

    rescuing and taking care of animals, walking, reading, computers, watching the Phillies, taking naps
