ok..i've been playing bass for about 20 years , learned alot of different syles during these years , victor wooten , mark king , les claypool and John taylor..(i consider myself a pretty good slapper).a year ago i was pretty bored with music , and a friend of mine (who's one hell of a drummer) asked me if i wanted to form a band...i said -sure! why not..what do you want to play??
-i want to go back to my roots......Duran duran (..loll this guy had a rush cover band)
well it's a little weird cuz first i dont look like John Taylor (bassist) i pretty much look like a maniac . and me playing duran...i'm gonna have to dress up for the part!!..lollll , but at least i can play like him...so i said yes!
we got a couple of ppl together , found a singer (who is already popular , is record on the radio!)
we all had 1 month to learn 20 songs our separate ways...
when we first all got together...WOW!..on the nose!! it sounded amazing! almost better than the original..all of the members brough their special touch to each songs...a little bit of rush on drums , alot of slap bass on my part...a heavy guitar...and electonics "a la kraftworks"...and the singer (i finaly got one!!)if i close my eyes..its Simon lebon...
after 5 jams we where ready to play live.
the first show was good...but the second one , the ice was broken!! we came on stage with our 3pc suits ...lolll the screams!!! this was a nice feeling
you can't imagine the reactions of the ladies in the audience..it was scary!!
i got 7 phone numbers!!...but hey! i'm married so..it was cool anyways
it got un $1500.00 for 2h of show....the feeling i had on stage..man i would of done it for free!!
