My Musical Evolution – Part 270 Roach Days Revisited Expanding The Bass Set

By the time this photo was taken, I had just about completely stopped playing Heavy Metal songs on my bass. Occasionally, I’d thump out some Ratt or maybe some Iron Maiden but for the most part the goal was to be able to play songs that the girls were into. Again, being only a mimic […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 215 College Intermission Self Control

One day I had some time before my english class in the CM building. I sat in a lounge type area where there was a television. There were a few other students present, seated or milling about. On the TV was this program about billiards. These guys were making these really cool trick shots to […]

My introduction to The Policecame courtesy of a gift of The Ghost In The Machine album. Sadly I don’t recall who actually gave it to me. I remember being in Alumni Hall, affectionately dubbed Slum with the approprate floor appended as in Slum 3 or Slum 2.   One of the guys had the album and […]
