Rock-influenced bassist looking for band in Toronto Canada. Ideal scenario would be once/week practice and occasional live gigs. I strive for “note perfect” in my bass lines.

Influences

Beatles, Yes, AC/DC, Billy Idol, Tom Petty, Led Zep, Who, Deep Purple, Queen, Doors, ZZ Top, Foo Fighters and numerous other bands that will come to mind eventually.
