    If Rex Brown and Ryan Martinie had a baby, then Trevor Dunn and Amos Williams had a baby, then THOSE two babies had a baby that refused to use picks and like to play claypool riffs for fun... It'd be me.

    Not sure, but perhaps 5% Kim Gordon, 5% Bill Laswell, 5% Tony Levin, 15% Paul McCartney, 15% Chris Squier, 20% Peter Hook, and 35% Justin Chancellor, +/- 5% each, depending on what kind of music exactly I am playing and what part of the mentioned bass players's discography exactly we are talking about.

    I sure the sound in my head comes from a thousand places, but I haven't a clue what they might be. Nor if I'm anywhere near actually producing that sound.

    I am a poor man's Les Claypool. A Les Claypool knockoff you might find at the discount department store on clearance.

    I am the synthesis of hundreds of mostly unknown blues bass players.

    Like Sid Vicious if he had all of his fingers broken.

    Some blend of Flea, Paul, a cat walking across a piano and said piano falling out of a window.

    Formerly a note-happy doodly noodly James Jamerson/Chris Squire type, but after having taken such a long time off due to COVID, I'm trying to be more disciplined and tighten up into a Duck Dunn style. Half short and twice strong.
