Favorite guitarists :
See above really hah.
Favorite bassists :
As with the guitarists, see the bands.
Favorite books :
Way too many to be bothered listing.
Favorite tv :
Anything either hilarious or totally over-the-top epic in scale. Basically if it either makes me laugh or makes me go "woah" then it's good shit.
Favorite movies :
Not the biggest movie buff. I like a huge range of stuff, romantic comedies being about the only genre I categorically just can't stomach.
Well, not much to say, or rather, a lot to say but not much I can be bothered typing here.
Been playing since 1998 so yep, I'm old by this site's standards. These days it's something I do for fun and since after doing something for that long it's kind of a part of you. Old bands of mine include The Furys.Front Page Affair and Stealing Glimpses so feel free to check those out if you want, we did some ok tunes.
I studied music at university for 4 years, did a lot of sound engineering and played in bands for years and years loving every second of it. Pet hate is people who are pointlessly negative about music they don't like. I definitely come from the "Don't like it? Don't listen to it!" school of thought.
