A View from the Side

I wrote this book to give anyone 
(musician or aficcionado) entrance into 
the world of the professional sideman. 

It’s an essentially bass-centric book, 
illuminating the trials, tribulations 
and passions of the pro bassist, but 
since it’s not technical in nature it 
can be well understood by anyone 
interested in a life in the arts.

In addition to some personal road 
stories from my own journeys it also 
has interviews and stories from some 
of the world’s top practitioners of the 
art of bass playing: Will Lee, Tony Levin, 

Marcus Miller, Jeff Berlin, Donald
“Duck”Dunn, to name a few, plus a 
special introduction by Sting.
