MY HISTORY WITH THE BASS
The earliest recordings I have are from 1972. Played an estimated 61,000+ hours in Marina Del Rey, California
restaurants, with Chet DeMilo (Peter Clark), player Ron Starr, and Bobby Darin/Pat Boone drummer John Baker.
I've posted four tunes from February, 1972. Diddn't remember making these tapes until Peter found them in 2009.
1. Night Train LISTEN 2. Mercy, Mercy, Mercy LISTEN 3. Brandy - Peter on vocal LISTEN 4. If - me on vocal LISTEN
...and a recent track I did a month ago just to see if I could still sing, Drift Away LISTEN

On "Drift Away" in the middle of the mp3, I'm singing, playing and working the recording equipment all live during a band rehearsal here in 1999.)
