During a "Think Floyd" gig.

Gumby

I'm 52 years old married with 2 kids. I have been playing Bass since I was 18. Have been in numerous fun, but unknown bands in my area (Ballarat - near Melbourne - Oz).

Until recently I played in a Pink Floyd tribute band called "Think Floyd" we started rehearsals in 2006 and commenced gigs in early 2007.

I also play in a covers band called "Tripodium" with the guitarist and drummer from Think Floyd.

It is a bit hard to list musical influences and favourite recordings but I have put some down (they tend to change depending on the mood)

Bass Building

My hobby is building (and refurbishing) guitars. I have refurbished 3 and built 8 (one a six string?? for my son) from scratch, see some in the photos below.
