Fender Precision Deluxe Bass (Active) for Sale £720

I am offering one of my bass guitars for sale.

It is a dark blue Fender Precision Deluxe and is in near perfect condition. It adds a little more flexibility than the standard Precision capabilities (being active) and is a pleasure to play as the neck is similar to a Jazz bass (for those of us with smaller hands!)

I am selling due to "thinning-out" my collection and need a little more space - guitars should be played, not stored in cases.

Thanks heepvention.  Got in touch with Paul again after many years and we have emailed and had a long chat on the phone!  Hoping to meet up again and, perhaps, take his mum out for lunch!

Keeping in touch with mates is what life is all about and it has been great to talk about old times!

Thanks for the memories!

WANTED: Shots that I missed

  1. Anybody get a good "curtain call" shot from the audience? The guys lined up perfectly, but there was no way I could make it to the middle of the floor for the shot.
  2. I missed all of Deiggj band's sets! :-( I was in Helsinki for Hensley-on-the-Rocks on Thursday, and on an airplane back to the U.S. Sunday night. :-(
  3. Shots of Lee Kerslake from the VIP seats (bleachers) -- I was so paranoid of the "photo pit" closing up on me that I forgot to…

Remembering Herluf Hermansen

I remember this nice young man, who came up to me in Spain, talking to me about our mutual interest in drumming. He loved my style and I loved his style. He comes to my mind every now and then. It was the first time he and I met, but we had a bond. I admired him for his strenght to keep on fighting and keep on making music, that's what a good musician does. Herluf, you rock my friend.

Lively Legends

Back in the U.S.A from Salo, sleep-deprived and jet-lagged but exhilarated - what a weekend! I have a HUGE amount of pictures to sort through and process, but here are three shots that give an idea of the main event venue. Attendance was excellent -- the main event was heavily promoted locally as "Uriah Heep Legends Live" and drew a large crowd outside of the "heepvention" attendees. (NEWSFLASH: Tapio just reported that it was a sold-out show, 1000 tickets!)

Easy Livin' in Salo 2009: Arrival Photos

Lee Kerslake and Paul Newton have arrived in Salo. Ken Hensley, on the other hand, is leaving Salo for the night to perform Past, Present & Future in Helsinki.

John Lawton is arriving on Friday.

I'm shooting Ken Hensley's Helsinki show tonight, which means I won't have any shots from the opening meet-and-greet celebration of Easy Livin' in Salo. Hopefully other attendees will fill the gap for me.…
