Exclamation Wassup?

OK, my thread title is a lame attempt at coming across as somehow cool, I'll admit...

I don't know if I'm cool or not and frankly, life is too short to care.

But I do like music a great deal - some might say too much, to which I respond "Pshaw!".

I've been around for a week or so and just read the forum guidelines, hence this note, of which I've probably written enough to scare off the sort of people I don't want to talk to, convince the trolls that I'm ripe for baiting, and generally irritate everybody else.

Why use 3 words when 30 are more confusing?

Welcome!

I'm impressed that you've played bass for the Ozrics - you must be pretty bloody skilled. What other bands are on your resumé?

Welcome to Musicbanter!

I think you'll fit right in. There's quite a lot of love for Gentle Giant around here at least and did you really play bass for Ozric Tentacles? If so, that's too cool for school right there!

Yup, I really once played bass for the Ozrics - just the once, mind!

It was one of those things - I was due to play a gig with a band and they didn't show.

There I was, armed with my bass, at the gig, capacity audience, all psyched up and ready to play and no band to play with - man, I HAD to play, so I asked Ed if it was cool for me to get up on stage and jam with the guys, and he agreed.

It was a real rush for me - even though in 1984, the Ozrics were still pretty much unheard of outside of the underground circuits. I used to see them supporting the likes of The Magic Mushroom Band, Here & Now, Gong, etc, which was the same circuit my band played on. We were called Original Gravity - you won't have heard of us, or any other band I've played for.

I've been playing bass a long time, but my skills have hardly moved on at all. You can hear some of my stuff on my MySpace page, but I play ALL guitars, so I'm a bit of a Jack of all skills, rather than master of any of them.

I did once jam with Gary Moore (ex Skid Row, Colosseum II, Thin Lizzy, etc), and fix Barrie Barlowe's PC while he was doing his drum practice, had Dan Carter (Radio 1 Rock DJ) as my band's photographer before he found fame - and a few other minor claims, but nothing serious.

/me makes note to hunt for a "claims to fame" thread...

Wow, I'm impressed! Those are some good stories there

I have friends who have similar stories, but I don't have any of my own save for giving a norwegian rap artist the finger on national TV .. but then I was sorta standing in the background, a bit hard to see, the guy was talking and the cameraman was trying to get me out of the picture.

One day, though. One day!

Heh - I remember when I joined up to ProgArchives, many years ago. I told that story - and of how Gary acted as my roadie (he carried my guitar from the van into my room, specifically), and a guy trumped me a million times over with a great story of how he had smoked a spliff with Bob Marley.

Can't beat that!
