I have a crooked finger...
My name is Ben...
when I created this account I was playing in, and very much a fan (still am a fan) of power metal.
I was once a captain in the Gorn Hegemony but I was recently demoted. I don't wanna talk about it.
Steve_ss. Steve is my first name, ss is Short Scale, the bass I play. Sorry it's not more exciting.
Back in the mid-seventies, the CB craze hit. That's how we communicated in our cars (and from base stations at home) with our friends.
A few moons before texting, etc. lol
Anyway, I needed a "handle" and asked for help picking out a name. A buddy questioned what do i do at work. I said I am a switchgear operator. So, Switchgear it was and is.
My dog's name is Bailey. He is a male.
I just celebrated a year and a half clean & sober. It's like coming back to life, hence the name of the biblical character that Jesus brought back to life. I'm not Christian, it's just a name that represented that without being "Soberboy" or something. The 27 is because Lazarus was taken already, and 27 is my favorite number (I have it tattood on my wrist). The fact that it pays tribute of course to a bunch of incredible rockstars who died at that age, often as a result of drugs, is just a coincidence.
That's my next tattoo if I ever get around to it.
< Our music and lyrics kinda go out on a tangent..
My little initials are JB--a buddy called me "Jables" for a while. Realized later it probably came from Jack Black/Tenacious D. Still works for me!
I am the world's greatest 2 string bass disco player
It's a bit nostalgic: In the Navy in Japan in the early 70s I played in a country band called the Stateside Ramblers. The Stateside part was a tip of the hat to Mel Tillis and the Statesiders; I don't recall where we got the Ramblers part. It was a fun band and my intro to playing country bass, when country performers didn't sound or dress or act even one bit like rockers.
Player of many Pedulla basses
The guitar player in my former band was making fun of my cheap bass, and said "Hondo for life" in his lame heavy metal rockstar voice. He didn't know how true it was. It is a great bass, and I absolutely will play it forever.
Still around from a Police tribute i ran for a while years ago. Still have the email addy so it's a no brainer atp.
My first bass was a Hondo P-bass back in '82. I was an idiot and got rid of it because I thought I had to once I became a better bass player. I wish I still had it.
Do you really?
I do, if only to be able to say that I still have my first bass. I dig that ugly brass bridge
