Gentlemen, bring forth thy four stringed upright machines and play!

Bumped into “Smithy”, who I haven’t seen in ages, the other day. When I was starting out on Bass, Smithy was an inspiration to me. He was playing in band called “Spud” and I used to follow them around and watch and listen to him playing fantastic stuff on his red Fender P Bass. I’m sure I was a nuisance but he was and is a complete gentleman and very generous with his time to an aspiring young Bassist.

One thought on “Gentlemen, bring forth thy four stringed upright machines and play!

  1. You know what…. That’s brilliant….staying in touch with the person that inspired you…..we all have inspirations and we all inspire too, even when we don’t know we did!! The joy of music and life!
