    Fool for your Loving - Whitesnake - Help

    I always look back at Whitesnake with such mixed feelings - They were such a great - different - band when they started, smokey blues rock with a hint of soul and such musical depth with Murray, Marsden, Lord and Moody then they just turned into this generic american see how fast you can play it rubbish with Vandenberg and Vai - all inside a few years. I saw them on the Slide it In tour and they were superb (despite everything that was happening in the background) - saw them on the 1987 tour and I don't think I've ever been more disappointed - all the soul sucked out and just frizzy hair and arpeggios left. FFYL when you listen to the two versions sums this up better than anything.

    P Bass - Which Brand?

    This all day long - I've been playing P basses for 35 years and have had loads, copies, squiers, jap, mexican US you name it (and still have a few) - the best one by a long way is my Lakland Skyline Duck Dunn special edition

    Rotosound Broken String!

    Yes - pick, music stand (well iPad on my mic stand) and 16 year old strings. The perfect combination. they don't even give you a Rotosound sticker in the packet anymore, and it's plastic! What the hell has happened? You turn your back for a little time and the world goes mad.

    Rotosound Broken String!

    I maintained them religiously - every other Saturday night they got a coating of finger grease! They were almost broken in as well

    Rotosound Broken String!

    Hi I just had to vent my disappointment and frustration at the obvious lack of quality and care that occurred in 2002 when Rotosound produced the batch of RS66 strings that have been on my bass for the last 16 years. The A string broke on new year's eve!!! You can imagine how shocked I was at the obvious lack of longevity of the things these days. Its also meant I've had to clean the fret board eradicating a small but very important ecosystem that showed promising signs of world domination.

    How was your gig last night?

    Great laugh last night, played a social club in Coulsdon, 3 1/2 hour set with two breaks. 5 songs in the lead vocalist/guitarists voice packs up entirely due to his cold. We manage to make it through another half hour with me singing some of the songs I do. Then in the fifteen minute break I transposed the entire rest of the set into my best guess keys for me (thanks on song!) and I sang and played the rest by sight - pretty nerve wracking especially as I'm so used to doing harmonies on auto pilot in almost of them. Then to add insult to injury about 45 minutes before the end I have my first string break in 30 years so I had to play the rest on just the E string. Went down really well though- everyone loved it, everyone on their feet dancing and they paid us a bonus as they liked it so much. Bit pleased with myself today

    Singing bassists, what's your set list?

    No we haven't got anything on you tube and our websites is about 4 years out of date - I really must update it as its a bit crap not to really - we should get some decent recordings and videos as well - but we're already booked out until this time next year so it's hard to convince the other two that we need to when we haven't got any spare slots if it generates any new business.

    Singing bassists, what's your set list?

    [quote]Agreed, but some very dodgy decade allocations there ...[/quote] well yeah (blush) it's something I need to sort out on the website We normally do 2x 1.5 hour sets or an hour first set and 2 hour second - lots of the fifties songs are actually really short 2-2.5 minutes and we try to go straight from one to another, few medleys etc. But normally 3 hours plus a couple of encore songs. Sometimes we play shorter sets if a club wants us to play for a shorter time. I share lead and backing with the guitarist so we both sing all night. Fine when you haven't got a cold I love it as it lets you run some themes through the set as well, rock and roll phase, 80s phase, everyone's drunk and wants to sings along phase etc - we like doing a juke box every so often as well where we put a menu on each table and people can tell us what they'd like us to play (2nd set) - we also do on the fly requests which are a lot of fun - on song is awesome for this, real seat of your pants stuff, but you have to be bloody careful we're all old farts that have played most songs people request anyway.
