- Gigs and Ensembles:
I have been playing on a rock quartet (later trio) trio for 25 years, from 1987 to 2012. Nice gigs, lot of fun and stories. I played in a reggae band with 10 members for 3 years, 2013 to 2016. This was absolutely great. Did the recordings with an AS P bass with flats. Wonderful. I like warm bass sounds, and that is why all my basses have rosewood fingerboards. I don't like playing maple. In January 2016 I needed to stop with loud music, because of severe tinnitus, hyperacusis, and dizziness after each rehearsal.
I was wearing custom made earplugs for the last 20 years. currently I am playing country songs with two acoustic guitar players.
