Deirdre, I can't believe that picture. You rock!



Another bass player here. Here's a pic of me and my beautiful Fender P-bass circa 1981:







I played it through an Ampeg V-6B, with twin 8X10 SVT cabinets. That bass has since been stolen (some of my hair seems to be missing too). I've replaced it with a natural finish Precision, but I find myself playing my black Strat most of the time. I'm also trying to learn drums by playing a Yamaha drum pad while I ride my exercise bike -- "The DrumCycle".



James Jamerson was a genius, and John Entwhistle...well, he made me want to give up the bass and go into radio!

Since you asked...



R&R/Blues Tenor Sax





Not the greatest picture, but it was a barwalk.



Full time video producer, part time, very part time VO, outside work has pretty much been on hiatus, just too busy with personal projects, but soon to be resuscitated.

I guess I am definately uncool, I play the radio.



At one time I was known for my ambuchure, and played trumpet. tried the cello, that was fun.



Now, I've got my tang tungled in my eye teeth and can't see what I am saying... Oh well...

Blonde, actually; it just looks red in that old picture. As I recall our brand of beer back then was Buckhorn, which went for about five bucks a case.

I can't tell you all how happy I was to see this post....downright giddy in fact! It includes my 2 passions (outside of my family of course): voiceover and music.



I'm not exactly a musician (yet), but I'm learning guitar and drums right now. My husband calls it my musical mid-life crisis....LOL...and has been very patient. He got me my very first drumset this Christmas. I think of the 2 so far, the drums are becoming my favorite. I have always loved the drums, but for some reason, waited until now (at age 33) to learn. Oh well, better late than never!



Keep Rockin'!

Tell you what, Fran--



I always liked drums too. Even thought I was chiefly a keyboard player in the 70's I'd noodle around on the drums whenever I could.



My older kiddo is a guitarist,



and because we have space here (a barn), the bands he was in would rehearse here. The drummers always left their kits set up.



On Halloween Night, 1999 I went to a bar for the first time in about 20 years. It was a party thrown by my radio station, and a classic rock band was playing.

Wow. I had forgotten how much fun it all was.



The next day, I took my boom box out in to barn with some Todd Rundgren and super-spare Steely Dan stuff and picked up sticks. I've not put 'em down since.

Only now I have my own Tama drum kit and too many cymbals.

Jeez....



We've gotta get a jam going here.



With as many bass players as we have..and D on drums we could do one mean version of Spinal Taps "Big Bottom".



Somebody call Nigel and David. 8)
