Hell, don't drive, no mobile 'phone - actually I might be jealous - my car only exists for bass travelling - I used to peddle and bus around with the bg, with an amp on a trolley if I needed it. With me, the front passenger seat is leant all the way back and the bass swung in on top of it, scroll to the back, end-pin facing forward. I know bass players with really small cars (mines an old Astra), but few cars are too small if the bass is put in like this. I got taxi drivers trying to charge me extra for the bass on a couple of occassions which I thought was more than a cheek - and I gave an ex-girlfriend a lift who complained bitterly about having to sit in the back (as the bass was on the front seat). Well the Queen doesn't bother about sitting in the back but I guess she doesn't get upstaged by something wooden that often . No wonder I'm single. I thought about carting it around on the bus, but the thought of the over-crowded 192 and getting the bridge leant against and the drunks on the all-nighter on the way home - no thanks - but you got me admiration Olie!
