Erik Am Bass: Listen to 70's early Jazz Rock with Stanley Clarke and live acting of Mark King's thumb with Level 42 finally sparked BASS interest. And since he saw a concert with Stu Hamm he fell in love with the four string sound! For the time of studying design Erik's bass output softened. But as co-founder of the progressive band GUM and as a live+session musician of various projects his bass tone is back ..
