My name's Dan. My username comes from my first band - Under the Bed. I went to school for music theory, and am currently looking for a job as a writer, an editor, a musician, or a sound engineer.
I'm primarily a bassist (both upright bass and electric bass), but I love playing drums, piano, guitar, and trumpet. (I'm actually the drummer for a punk rock band.)
I obsess over obscure bits of music theory and rock n roll trivia.
I live life by the John Frusciante quote: "I know I'm weird but I don't feel weird."
I used to moderate the Gear & Bass Guitar forums at UG, and I used to be an S-mod here. I don't anymore. People would hunt you down and complain about every little warning and banning, and some people would torture you via email or AIM or worse, even if you were justified in your actions.
I love to run and bike - I'm a triathlete. I love to write, both creatively and otherwise. I dive in head first. I love my life.
