Bass player’s question time

First of all I would like to thank all those who took the time to send questions or a comments to my website, and apologize for the lack of response. I have looked at the huge amount of questions that have been sent over the last few years and decided three things – I can’t possible answer them all; I like the idea that people can send me questions; I need to keep up my contributions in a more timely manner.

The last bit is an understatement of gigantic proportions considering that there are questions relating back to Bananas and here we are in a new age, the age of Rapture. I hang my head but I have trawled through and answered many of these questions. So, I am adopting a better modus operandi and answering only those that strike me as pertinent or interesting. If you sent a question any time in the last few years there is still a good chance you will find a reply.

Many of the questions are similar so there is a sort of FAQ

Thank you all again for your correspondence.

Good luck,
