I play bass with The Rip.
I tend to be very brand loyal. I play Gibson and Epiphone guitars with Rotosound strings. I prefer Vans but Doc Martens and Adidas pepper the program. I only ride Bones wheels and bearings and Native Skates skateboard decks...well my longboard is Dogtown. And I have an abiding love for Fred Perry and Ben Sherman garments.
My top ten bass influences, in no particular order are:
Bruce Foxton of The Jam
Joe Lally of Fugazi
Paul Simonon of The Clash
Duck Dunn of Booker T & the MGs, etc.
Family Man Barrett of Bob Marley & The Wailers
Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones
Dominic Simper of Tame Impala
Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath
John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin
Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys
George Porter of The Meters
...Yes...but this list goes to 11...
