I set myself up to be a bass guitarist and bass players get a lot more work than people like me.
I ain't heard anyone play like I do in my band and I am very happy about that.
What I feel I am doing now is giving to the people exactly what they paid for but never actually heard before.
I mean, Eighteen years old is the age of consent in Europe and you can go anywhere and do anything you like. In America, it is dumb. At eighteen you should be able to do anything that you like, except get married.
That was the producer who produced a couple of my solo albums. He produced my second, third and fourth solo albums. It was his project and I just joined him on it. I sang on one and played bass on another one.
We'll open for anyone, we are just looking to play.
I supply the music for Vampires, which is a new series that's coming out.
I deep sea fish a lot.
So by the time I taught myself the bass guitar at the age of 14, my hands were already pretty nimble.
This band makes sure that we have whole sections of stuff that are free form so that they don't know what we are doing next, that is the fun part of playing. You are playing something that you haven't ever played before.
I don't mind doing the Who tours when they come along but I want to get out there and play.
I got a couple on per album but my problem was that I wanted to sing the songs and not let Roger sing them.
With bass, especially bottom end, the vibration has to happen on stage otherwise the feel is wrong. This is why you can't scale the equipment down too far.
I don't wish my career on anyone.
I love playing for people.
