Hi,

Tom's the name. I'm an ex-pat Yank (American) that has currently been living in the UK for the last 12 1/2 years. I heard about you from another great forum based in the uk called finnbass. Ken (KT88) has already told you about it I believe.

I used to play bass for a living in various cover, function and original bands as well as playing bass on ships for a number of years. I did a West End show a few years ago but now I'm an IT developer. I still keep my hand in so check out the link in my sig.

In the process of building some BFM cabs which is keeping my mind off my complicated life at the moment.

I'll try to keep up [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

Cheers,
Tom

Tom,

Ken (Oxblood/KT88) and Steve (finnbass/finnbass) did beat you over here, but the more the merrier, I say. Welcome!!

The continuing shuffle of personnel and information between BABP and finnbass is still well underway. I've already learned more than I needed to know about "marmite" over there. [smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif]

Yeah, they're top chaps. I'm trying to understand marmite. A bit like bitter...takes a while to acquire a taste :)

Thanks for the welcome.
