    G.A.S. List:
    Replacement pickup to fill the butchered JB neck pickup rout on my EB-0 (Pickup dead, installed in bridge position by previous owner). Maybe a Joe Barden J neck pup, Possibly a pair of Darkstars or ???. New controls/wiring to match. A good bass amp suitable for gigging medium rooms. Hard case for the EB-0 (sumbitch stole mine at a gig).
    Influences and Teachers:
    Wow. Ray Brown. Jack Bruce, John Illsley. I could fill a page... Count Basie - not as a bass player but because his work showed the importance of the bottom end and of dynamics.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Electronics, Target shooting, Computer geek-type hacking. Building recumbent trikes.
