How did you come to play bass? I have always been a fan of the underdog. When I started going to see live shows, I felt the bass was the underdog of the group. So I went out & bought one!

What’s a lesson you’ve learned along the way? Never burn a bridge. Find your personal voice. Mash up what you have learned from all those great players and make it your own.
