Why I play the bass:

NOFX – Heavy Petting Zoo.

Odd I know… considering I was going to school for jazz.

My bass superpower/claim to fame

I pride myself on being in the pocket… I realized some time ago that all the flashy stuff usually only matters to other bassists.

My influences

The usual I suppose… Vic, Marcus Miller, Flea…

But I don’t think punk gets enough love!

Matt from face to face and no use for a name has great ideas and Mike from NOFX is amazing.

Oh and Prince… we can’t forget Prince.
