I starting playing bass at 13 in the 70's, went to art college, played out a lot, band broke up, Starting fooling around with recording Solo Bass around 82 or so, got a Kahler when they first came out and never looked back.

Always the one to go against the grain or question "why?"

Owned an Alfa, play Gibson basses, like Captain Beefheart - Meshsuggah, rub my dog's fur the wrong way.

I have doing this weird music for so long, I do not really play "bass" anymore.


A have a bad back & I recently had Carpel Tunnel , which I have pretty much recovered from, but found it has taken away from playing both in endurance & speed. I have to gradually ease back in and do stretches before I play.

My name is from my dogs, which are Basenji's, barkless dogs. I can't sing so it seemed like a good name.

Testing the imbedding feature-my dogs new role in life-checking the sump pump

keep me up to date on the sump.

floods suck.

if its any condolences to you ... i'm a diabetic and i have bad circulation and neuropathy certian times of the year. its kinda like corpral tunnel syndrome ... after playing for long periods, my hands feel good, but i wake up in the middle of the night and my hands feel like they are on fire. even worse is every once in a blue moon, theyll go completely numb when i'm playing. scary, because i know i'm experiencing pain ... but i cant feel it. had this happen at a show one night and every member of the band felt the need to come up and tell me how much i sucked that night. thanx for being supportive to your bandmate guys ... i know i sucked.

i just play thru it.

I'm lucky in that I don't have any health problems like you guys have, and I hope that you are able to deal with these issues. It sucks when your body has to struggle for any reason. Hang in there, my Brothers!

I only have the usual things at my age, and a lot of it is from beating myself up while performing. The hands don't move quite as smoothly, my back and neck hurt, my hearing is going. I remember when I first started playing in my teens saying to myself that I wanted to be deaf and arthritic when I got older. And now that I am, I want to go back in time, find my younger self, and kick myself in the arse! Mad

Damn, that's a downer, Mike. I find that half of playing is learning to play so you don't hurt yourself. You have to know your limits when you're playing and when you're not playing, I think.

I want to get something that'll keep me from being drafted...but that's about it. Maybe asthma or get knocked out a couple more times...something like that. Don't want to do that ****. Evil or Very Mad
