I started out playing in bands when i was around 18 years old....Started in Tripod when i was around 19/20 and i havent looked back. :)
What was the first concert you ever went to?
The first gig i saw was at the Quart festival i remember Black Debbath, The Kovenant and Sonic Youth played...it was awsomme!
What gear do you use?
I use a Gibson Thunderbird and i have an Ampeg Svt4 pro bass top....it kicks ass!
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
The first album i ever bought was AC/DC - Powerage...I started out listening to bands like AC/DC, Motley Crue, Guns N`Roses and stuff like that...Then i discovered Nirvana...and i listened to that for a while....Nirvana has really been a band thats always been something i love to listen to! And i used to listen alot to the Offspring, Green Day and Sex Pistols!!
Got into black metal, had period where black metal music was everything i listened to Cradle Of Filth, Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon, The Kovenant, Burzum, Old Mans Child and bands like that...then i discovered Marilyn Manson, Korn and Deftones and i was heavily into that for a while...
Then all of a sudden Nirvana popped back into my life for full...and i got a big kick off finding all kinds of grunge music...and i found Alice In Chains...Alice became my all time fav band and they still are! For years and years grunge music was all i listened to (with the inclusion of other fantastic 90s band like Pantera, Faith No More, Smashing Pumpkins, Blind Melon and Kyuss) Screaming Trees, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, Mad Season, Stone Temple Pilots, The Melvins, Tad, Hole, The Afghan Whigs, L7 and so on and on and on.....
Other bands that i truly love but somewhat havent found their place in my story so far incluedes: Mastodon, Tool, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Pentagram, Orange Goblin, Megadeth, Slayer, Black Label Society, Down, The Gits, Kingdom Of Sorrow, Lamb Of God, Motorhead, Gallows, Cancerbats, Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, A Pale Horse Named Death, The Pixies, Placebo, Ozzy Osbourne, Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters, Devin Townsend, Strapping Young Lad, W.A.S.P, The Rammones....i could go on for hours!!
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Im in a band called Tripod, we are all childhood friends...known eachother for years and years. We have released 2 albums and play live as often as possible. :) To play is to live! :)
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
The biggest gig Tripod ever played got to be a gig we did when we toured China. Golden Beach Festival.....was one of the coolest gigs ive ever played. Loads of fun!! Chinese people are damn cool and i GOT to go back and play there!!
The biggest crowd i have played bass infront is the quart festival after i got pulled up on stage with Green Day and played infront of 12 000 people...FUCKING amazing
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
