  1. I have one identical to that with D'addario Flatwound Chromes 45 to105 on it,knock spots off my Mex P no exaggeration.
  2. This never failed to get the punters up ,known to us band members ,the half eleven jiggy .
  3. The Yam BB necks are something in between a Jazz which is 38 mm at the nut to a P which is around 43mm at the nut,My BB424 is 40 mm at the nut HTH.
  4. Yer i get that,but the M62 ends at North Cave near Hull,but thinking about it maybe Hull could equally be construed as being in Hell,even more so than Grimsby come to that.
  5. 🎶 Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids In fact it's cold as hell...... I've always been led to believe that Hell was rather hot. Mind you with Bernie living near Grimsby,maybe he thought that that cold hole was actually Hell.
  6. When i first started playing Bass again 4 years ago after a 30 year lay off i bought 5 bass Guitars in a matter of 4 months. 1.Gear 4 Music LA Bass 2.Ibanez sr 300 3 Yamaha 424x. 4. Ibanez SR 500 5.Sire Jazz Bass vintage. i have 2 of these Basses left,but only play one of them,and the other one never comes off the wall hanger. Guess which one that is.
  7. The reason Showaddywaddy had two drummers was something to do with them forming from two separate bands i believe.
  8. He was better looking than me. I'd moved from Nottingham in 76 with me mam n Dad to Scarboro. Me dad had been made redundant from the Pit so he bought me a Bass with his spare cash. I was very much still a rookie when I met them, they was just a couple of normal guys. Ah well the rest is history.
  9. The Band was Prefab Sprout who I had met in Scarborough in 77. They were a couple of lads from Durham who were brothers Paddy and Martin Mcaloon.
  10. I was born in 57 and as far as I remember most of the top chart tunes from say 76 to 85 had slap bass lines in them. The technique was the ultimate coolness of Bass playing back then, in that vein I actually love the sound of slap Bass, but sadly I was never that good at playing it, which at the time cost me a place in a very well-known band who I sharnt mention.
  11. Bob Geldof,i was a huge fan of the Rats back in the day,but now forget the Boomtown he just a Rat,sorry if any Rats ever post on here.
  12. Liking the gold bridge plate and jack cover plate.
