Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

2 million not out!


To mark passing the two million page views I looked back to the early days of BSH and, although I cringed at some of my own postings, this one from Roly back in 2008 I thought was worth reprising -"I've come to the conclusion that the bass player is the most important guy in the band! A good bass can make ordinary players play their best. A poor bass can make good players seem ordinary. " - Roly Veitch. 
Words of wisdom that still stand (providing they don't take too many long solos!)
Lance.
