  1. A few years back we went to see Deep Purple at whatever the NEC was called that month. It was the start of a massive (over 12 months) tour. Lynyrd Skynyrd were the penultimate band on and they absolutely blew Purple away – leaving me somewhat disappointed in the Purps and very impressed with Skynyrd. Saw Purple again, same venue, at the tail end of the same tour and they were excellent.
  2. If you're mid set and you break a string (this happened to me last year) it's easy and quicker just to grab the other bass and carry on with the set.
  3. From left to right: Number one gigging bass, Spare gigging bass (always goes to gigs, just in case) Twiddle and Noodle at home mostly bass. Red one sold on.
  4. Just had a listen - and even before I read the comments I was thinking "That's a film score just waiting to happen." Nice
  5. In the days before wireless I was mostly bass-cable-amp for gigs, so for wireless it’s the same: Bass into G30 transmitter - receiver on top of amp. Incidentally, the transmitter goes into my back pocket so swapping basses is a doddle, just unplug bass A pop into stand, grab bass B and plug in – job done.
  6. Line 6 G30 - Never had any issues apart from one sound guy who insisted I used a jack lead "because it would pick up interference from passing taxis or car engines" or something equally ridiculous. It hasn't yet - although there's a first time for everything.
  7. I like to think I have a healthy open attitude to music whilst, naturally, preferring some styles over others and I also like to think I can be encouraging to anyone keen enough to take up my favourite instrument. But; WHAT THE HELL HAVE I JUST WATCHED!! Apologies, I didn't intend to shout
  8. Quite right, too. I just about managed to scrape into 1959 as my birth year. After some consideration I seem to remember the term Heavy being followed by both Rock and Metal back in the day. I seem to recall Purple being referred to as Progressive at some point in the dim and distant too.
  9. Can't speak for tortex picks but I find there's (for me anyway) exactly the right amount of "give" in the 1.5mm Dunlop nylon.
  10. My weapon of choice too.
  11. Limehouse LizzyLike Page PLEASE SHARE EVERYWHERE! STOLEN!! Our tour bus was stolen last night from #Rothwell in South #Leeds. All band equipment, guitars, amps, cabs, desk, backdrop etc. have gone too, so if you see a white Mercedes Sprinter reg YH65 UDN (or a 190 kg mirrored backdrop in a black flightcase) please call the police immediately. We will do out best to salvage the shows this week, and hopefully with your help we may find what's been stolen. Wayne, Greg, Aid, and James x This was just shared to my facebook page - let's hope you BCers can spread the news and maybe help them recover stuff
  12. Now there's a prog band just waiting to happen
  13. I used to have a made under licence in Mexico Shitenbacker Bananaboat Gaylord I Skwier - Played nice, but I never gigged with it.........
  14. Yup, that's what goes on my basses. In fact, I ordered three sets recently (Legacy 40 60 80 100) and was delivered Roto Bass packaged strings at Legacy prices.
  15. 22nd December 2017 A nod to Christmas is not only acceptable but expected imho. This was an originals metal gig. I wish I'd thought of lights on the cab.
  16. Very similar experience for me too (back in the day). Chatting, all four of us, to punters immediately after we'd finished one lady says to me, "Have you seen them before?" I said I'd never seen them.
