The Future Publications Centrinim

September '18: not a month many of you will bookmark as a significant 30 days that changed the path of the universe - but for this little cockney bassist it proved an autumnal benchmark, as I was able to realised a journalistic ambition and appear simultaneously on the front cover of both Bass Guitar Magazine (UK), and Bass Player (USA).

Joel McIver has been a seminal editor for both of these publications. I can not express enough gratitude for the trust and opportunities he's extended to me over the years; both as a monthly contributor, through my own techniques column, and via the vast array of articles, interviews and reviews that's he's commissioned.

I'm immensely proud to be part of such a wonderful team and find it hard to believe that I've now been commissioned for over 100 publications. None, however, will ever equal the feeling I received the day I was able to walk into my local newsagents with my mother and purchase the magazines you see here (I went home with the store's entire inventory!) - if you can see past Stanley Clarke, you'll spot my little face in the top right corner. A tiny, but significant footprint.
