Personal Quote:

[on learning to cope with different tuning protocols for cello and bass, both of which he plays] When sight-reading music, the note you're looking for falls in different places on the neck of each instrument, so your brain has to compensate to be proficient in both. I gladly focused my attention on the bass and wired my brain for an instrument tuned in fourths.


Played bass on the Eurythmics' 1985 music video "Would I Lie to You?" featuring Annie Lennox, David A. Stewart and Steven Bauer as directed by Mary Lambert. See more »
