What/Who inspired you to play the bass? There was a time when I hardly knew what the hell a bass was. I think what really made me take notice and want to become a bassist was when I first started listening to Nirvana back at school. I borrowed Nervermind off a mental friend of mine who's into Death Metal! As he'd become a metal fanatic he'd gone off Nirvana and let me record the album. When I heard Lithium and Lounge Act I was hooked. I had to have a bass. So I got this crappy second hand Aria and a guitar amp for X-mas and started playing. My tastes have spread a lot now as I'm always looking for new inspiration. I love funky stuff like Flea and Stuart Zender and I'm getting into Jazz stuff now too. However it was the great lines constucted by Krist Novoselic that got me started.
