Then you're allowed to have a mullet instead.

What if it's an electric double bass? Can I get away without the hat?

I've come to the conclusion that it depends if you've got an acoustic double bass too then the hat is compulsory, if not then it's optional :)

We have a rule in our band, more of a law actually. No hats and no waistcoats. Nothing screams "Late middle aged rocker" more than those two items. And yes I am 65, and bald.

How do we know that's your hat. ? :)
I think we need to see a pic with you wearing your hat and holding your bass.

That could just be a random image of Marcus's own hat. :D :D :D

Out of curiosity what style of music are you playing ?

Dave
PS I'm more the mullet image i'm afraid. :P

You could always wear a tyrolian so there'd be no confusion with Mr. Miller. Lederhosen optional.

You [b]are[/b] in trouble, but not because of [b]that[/b], cos [b]that[/b] is Robbie Fripp and it's me who's fat and 61. :)
[/quote]

Funny that. I was just going to post that from the photo you are almost a ringer for Mr Fripp. Seems Mr Fripp is a ringer for himself. :D

You seem to pull it off though FinnDave, the hair, the beard & the shades go well with the hat n waistcoat look.
I used to have the hair but it slipped off the back of my head!

Ah, go on... you could have a selection... a mullet, a beehive, Elvis quiff, Jedward, monk's tonsure... your GF could have a different man every day of the week! :biggrin:

I wore a Fedora in bands when I was 25 . Alright, NOW I am middle aged . But I no longer care what anyone on a forum thinks. Now, get off my lawn or fire the drummer. Damn kids.
