I've known Bryan for about twenty-five years or so, but we didn't hang out together much until our late teens when we both started playing guitar. He played bass while I played rhythm and lead, but he also taught himself guitar, keyboard and drums. He has been into electronics for a long time, and has worked as a professional computer technician. He has impeccable musical taste, a good “ear,” and can plug whatever equipment is available at any gig into the most effective combination for recording or performance.
The bass lines he comes up with to my songs are very good, and he also comes up with original bass lines to start songs for which I create guitar parts and vocals.
