I am an attorney by day, but that's really just my "backup gig" in case this whole "musician thing" doesn't work out. ;^) I was been blessed with the opportunity to write freelance reviews for Guitar World's Bass Guitar Magazine, and I contributed regularly from the Spring of 2006 up until Bass Guitar Magazine's demise. This was, in itself, a dream come true, and an opportunity for which I am truly grateful. But this was a stepping stone to bigger and better things, and I am now the Editor-in-Chief of Bass Gear Magazine ( Our first issue came out in August of 2008, and we are now the leading bass review magazine, worldwide. Of course, on the topic of my true blessings, I have a wife and two kids, all of whom I greatly adore, so my time for music/bass/songwriting/performing, and yes, even the occasional practicing, is not infinite. Nevertheless, I really enjoy my time spent playing bass, writing and recording songs, and just getting to "play" with all that great gear! This blog is a result of these external interests...

Winter NAMM 2008

Okay, who else is going to the NAMM show in Anaheim this January? I will be out there (mostly on Friday and Saturday), and I hope to meet up with some of my friends in the industry as well as my fellow bass-playing buds. Feel free to send me an e-mail or PM if you are going to be out there.

There is a Bass Bash at J.T. Schmidts both Thursday night and Friday night, and I expect to be there both nights (though later on Thursday).

Take care, Tom.

Well, NAMM and the Bass Bash were both just great! I really enjoyed meeting and hanging out with my friends from, and of course checking out all that gear was just great!

I'll have extensive coverage of the show in the inaugural issue of Bass Gear Magazine, a new (obviously gear-related) magazine, of which I am the Editor-in-Chief. :^) Stay tuned for more details...
