  1. A few miles from Clacton-on-Sea - social hub of the Tendring Peninsula and the beating heart of the Essex Sunshine Coast (allegedly).
  2. I don't think I would change my mind. Started out in 1966 with a 2nd hand Futurama Duo guitar (Christmas Present). Tried a friend's Hofner bass guitar in September 1968 and loved it. I'm now 67, still playing bass guitar and still loving it. Chris
  3. Do It Again - Steely Dan Burlesque - Family All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
  4. The 3 Songs You Never Want To Hear Again - Ever What are the three songs (excluding Christmas songs please) that make your toes curl - the ones that make you want to throw a brick at the radio/TV/Jukebox. My three are: Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen (Why? - Great production but mind-numbingly boring) American Pie - Don McClean (Why? - Goes on and on and on and zzzzzzzzzzzzz) Come On Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners (Why? - Words fail me, just awful) Over to the BassChat membership for comments, and nominations. Chris
  5. Heard 'Ball And Chain', the new single by The Who, a couple of times over the weekend (on Radio Caroline). Very disappointing - and I've been a fan of the Who since 1965 when I first heard 'Can't Explain''. Chris
  6. Favourite Yes Album? 'Yes' from 1969 - Love Pete Banks guitar work and his interplay with Chris Squire, Tony Kaye and Bill Bruford. 'Every Little Thing' and 'I See You' still give me goose-bumps. Runners-up would be 'Time And A Word' and 'The Yes Album'. Nothing else worked for me until 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart' Chris
  7. Radio Caroline (648 Medium Wave) - "Don't Believe A Word" by Thin Lizzy. Caroline played "One Thing Leads To Another" by Fixx earlier today. Can't get it out of my head now. Chris
  8. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  9. John Entwistle - my inspiration, and my bass muse. 'My Generation' and 'Call Me Lightning' - contain the definitive bass solos. That sums it up for me. Chris (Chezz55)
  10. I agree 100% with Loz196. I've been playing 'ham-fisted' bass in bands since 1968. Had a few 'Bouquets and Brickbats' over the years ....... but more importantly I thoroughly enjoy playing bass guitar, and that's good enough for me. Chris
  11. Just taken delivery of an EHX NanoPOG from Stu (bluepigbass). Seamless transaction, prompt communications and goods were very well packed. No problems here. Chris
  12. I was there as well - and I've still got an unused Deep Purple sticker from the event. IIRC the support band were called 'Highway'
