"I very sincerely believe that not to oppose injustice is immoral. To be neutral and do nothing at all is to allow it to continue unhindered and unchecked, which is actually helping it to continue -again immoral. When you see an injustice the only moral stand you can take is that of opposition.".......Derek Still (Dags)

PA Musician Cover. September, 2006

I've been playing bass since 1978. I practice every day and just love to play. I play in a band called Steel. It is a four piece band with a lot of talent. Steel was voted Artfortress band of the month for November 2002 on PA Webcast. Artfortress Band of the Month Nov. 2002 Steel was featured on the cover of "The Pennsylvania Musician Magazine for the month of September 2006. My rig? For over 20 years I have used a 1976 Sunn Concert Bass head and a 2 x 15 cab. I bought a B.C. Rich Bich in 1984 and have been playing it ever since. Although, I have my eye on a Ken Smith Elite.
