I think it's time I took my own musical career into my own hands again, just like at the beginning of the journey detailed in here.
Kicking around doing some covers occasionally is fun, but I'm in danger of letting myself wander into the terrible stage of middle age where people just give up by degrees. If you do that you might as well just hang up your fun for the rest of your life and settle down to prepare for death!
Life must have passion: if passion is only available through dedication, then so be it.
So this is an APB: if you read this, and you're located within 15 to 20 miles of Slough (there are some pretty places around there! - and I'm including West London, where Jamiroquai came from) and you want to start something original which could get huge, with a lean towards all things funky (no gauge of how hard the music will be yet - i.e. skunk anasie or james brown, or both? Who knows?!) then get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org (yep, it's a real email address) and we'll see what we do from there.
Even if this means I can't do covers anymore, I've got to reach for something and not turn into a wrinkly Rollings Stones cover player... argh!
If you read my profile on http://www.funkybass.co.uk and follow this blog, you'll know I can play. Question is, do you want to?
I'll be looking through the want ads again as well. I may find you first. Be prepared...
Oh and BTW, anyone want to buy my small rig? One Warwick CCL combo (250W, 15" driver great sound) and one 2x10 Trace Elliot extension cab making up a great portable rig for any pub gig. I'l selling the two huge speakers from the main rig as well to upgrade to something a little lighter. Any interest to email@example.com.
