For me, Geddy Lee, Steve Harris, Roger Waters, and Michael Anthony were big influences. Who inspired you to pick up the bass guitar?

All three that you mentioned were influences for me. I'll add John Paul Jones, John Entwistle, and Paul McCartney to the list.

The bass player from Wishbone Ash, Martin Turner, inspired me at first. Now I draw from Paul McCartney, John Entwistle and Norman Watt-Roy

Steve Harris, Cliff Burton and Geezer butler inspired me to start on bass. Didn't take long after trying to play Maiden as a beginner that I gave up and bought a Les Paul. A few years later I returned to the bass and feel I'm where I should be.

I picked up electric bass on my own after playing double bass for years, but since then Gene Simmons has been a big influence to me.

I wish I could play like Geddy Lee, but his bass lines are more discouraging to me than encouraging because after so much practice, they still escape my grasp.

Dave Ellefson of Megadeth is another inspiration of mine. He's such a cool dude
