    hey all,

    I get lots of requests from folks who want to see me that don't live in the l.a. area (where pedro is - actually, we're in the harbor part). well, I'm about to do yet another tour (my 50th one) that goes from april first to may 28 and I'm hitting towns all across the u.s. and some of canada. I've got the tour infos here:

    c'mon by and we can rap bass some after the gig or whatever or at the very least, you can see my hands wrestle the bass instead of just these thoughts about it via typed-out words.

    just to let you know I'll be out there rollin' about in the boat, working the towns.






    on bass, watt

    I see that you are coming back to Spokane! This is fantastic news! I hope that this will be an ongoing trend. Any chance you'll be playing the bass Spokanite Darrin Huff made for you?

    I know that the last time you came through Spokane, you played at Mootsy's, which had to be the smallest place on your tour. You'll be happy to know that the B-Side is bigger...even has a stage! My band has played there several times, and it's a great place to play.

  3. I'll be seeing y'all in Albany.

    Come hell or high water it will be done to give you at the Spokane gig....

    I had a problem with the Polyureathane yellowing over the metal flake I added, so I stripped it down and she is getting a new finish as we speak.

    Don't miss this (or any of watt's) tour everybody!!!!

    See you in Northampton. If'n you gotta grub native while you're in town, see if FitzWilly's is still open around the corner from the club. It ain't bad.

    ok, that's much better. Not sure how I missed that the first time! Hope to see you then and there.
     
  15. I just got home from Mike's first show of the tour in Sacramento, CA. all I can say is you guys are in for a real treat. I loved the voicing between the organ, bass and drums. Mike, you must break strings all the time. Thanks for letting me hang out. I hope I wasn't too annoying.

    I live out of the city of Toronto, with no car, so going to see any shows is always difficult. But if I have to I'll get a bloody hotel room. You always put on amazing shows and I would love the chance to talk bass with you again. I have had the pleasure since you toured Engine Room and played the Starfish Room (R.I.P.).
    I hope to see you at the Horseshoe.
