      You call it downtuning; I call it a noise like a flat tire flopping.

      Questions you don't want: "Did you put a smoke generator in your amp?"

      The bad news is that my amp runs hot. The good news is that it keeps my pizza warm between songs.

      On the bright side, Arsenal is on top and it's new amp day!

      Right now, there's not a single person working for the 49ers, from the owner down to the practice squad, who deserves to keep their job.

    Favorite Genres:
    I mostly play older rock styles (classic rock, prog, New Wave, punk, metal) but I listen to everything that crosses my path. IMHO, anyone who restricts their musical experience to a single genre or narrow spectrum can't really be called a music fan, much less a musician.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    None. Had some bad band experiences, now just an aging hobbyist.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Basses: Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Squier.
    Guitars: BC Rich, ESP, Gibson.
    Amps: Acoustic, Ampeg, Behringer, Crate, Marshall.
    Too many pedals to remember.
    One ex-wife.
    G.A.S. List:
    A cure for pedal addiction.
    An arena-sized amp rig. Not because I need one, just because.
    Neighbors that don't complain about loud music.
    More time to play.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Steve Harris, Cliff Burton, Geezer Butler, Frank Bello, David Ellefson, Joey Demaio, Lemmy, Dee Dee Ramone, Paul Simonon, Mike Mesaros, Mike Dirnt, John Entwhistle, Paul McCartney, Micki Steele, Geddy Lee, Greg Lake, Peter Hook, Lee Rocker, and whoever really played bass for Pink Floyd.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Sports, computers, reading, writing, gaming
    Retired US Navy nuclear engineer, now working in a shipyard repairing the ships I used to drive.
