Hi I'm Dave......

Influences

The first LP I bought was "Led Zeppelin 2" - groundbreaking stuff in it's day! Other bands that I was into in my formative years were Hendrix, Black Sabbath & Deep Purple. Later I got into AC/DC and I still love the early Bon Scott stuff.

Background

Got my first guitar at 14, a cheap "Spanish" guitar, but quickly discovered that you couldn't make noises like Jimi Hendrix with it and got my first electric the following year (a Watkins Rapier 33). Found that I still couldn't sound like Hendrix, so turned my attention to playing bass (it's my theory that all Bassists are failed lead guitarists!). My first bass was a brand new 1979 Fender Precision which I kept for many years but was never really happy with it. Eventually tried s Steinberger Headless and fell in love with it and that is what I've played ever since.

Bands

Most of the bands I've played with in the past have not been gigging - just jamming for a bit of fun. The last serious band I was in was  a NW London "functions" band called Rootz that played Blues Brothers/Commitments sort of music back in 1996. Not exactly my thing, but it was good to get out and play.

Not having been in a band for the last five years, I got the urge to play again and when Baz asked me to join "Break The Chain" I jumped at it (having been a big fan of Black Rain). I have also joined a newly formed West London rock covers band called Replicant, who are just starting to gig.

Interests

My other main interest is of course, motorcycles! I have owned many bikes in the past including Triumphs and BSAs, but I currently ride to work every day on a TDM 850. Among the other bikes that I currently own is a VW Trike that I built myself about 12 years ago.

 

Cheers.......Dave.
