Well into my sixties, retired from full time employment in 2003. Started playing guitar from scratch in 1998, picked up the bass in 2000 and continued playing bass. Have been in several bands all playing covers. I am a big fan of The Motown Sound in particular how James Jamerson and Bob Babbitt play the bass. Before I started learning guitar I was a DJ spinning the "wheels of steel". I played my first record as a DJ on 5th November 1970 and continued to do so for, on and off, 27 years. My first record I ever played as a DJ was "Land of A 1000 Dances" by Atlantic Soul legend Wilson Pickett.
