I play the bass and sing (lead and/or harmonies).
Ex-pro, I have extensive stage and studio experience and can play covers from the 60s to date.
On the bass I can play most anything. Vocally I have my limitations (who hasn't ?), but I can sing The Beatles (from The long and winding road to Helter skelter and everything else in between), Cream, Joe Cocker, Wilson Pickett, Johnny Winter and a quite a few more, including more recent stuff such as Queens of the stone age or Green day...

My gear: 1 Fender Jazz bass + 1 Fender Precision active + 1 Ampeg SVT 5 PRO (rackmounted with a Korg 1000 tuner) and 2 cabs: 1 Ampeg Classic 1x15"+horn and 1 Ashdown ABM 2x10"+horn. I also have own transportation - I currently reside in Poole, Dorset, but am willing to travel.

I am 51 (and probably look more), but play and sing with the enthusiasm and energy of a 20 year old :-)
