- Commercial User?:
Bassist who grew up listening to Rush and Iron Maiden, then at 12 Return To Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, at 13 added NYHC (which was local for me at the time), punk and metal. Played mostly NYHC until I relocated to Florida and current play in 3 Extreme Metal nationals. I still love playing NYHC style but in Florida that's kinda tough.
- Aguilar Amplification
I am lucky and thankful to play with the drummers I work with in the nationals I play in, but also enjoy my time in OC when I get to hit it with Forrest Robinson, one of the best drummers overall and his intuition for improve is like telepathy!
Oh, and if the drummer isn't half timing it, I'm not half timing it. Not even at 270bpm..
