Mike Bass Guitar & backing vocals

"Mike identifies a 1984 Status Quo concert as the moment he first decided he wanted to play music, but thanks to growing up in a household of diverse musical taste, by the time he started playing bass at 16, he has been exposed to everything from Metal to Motown, and from Folk to Rock & Roll.

In his late teens and early twenties, long hair, spandex and cowboy boots were the order of the day, and Mike played in a number of original rock bands in the Midlands playing gigs across the UK, rubbing shoulders with everyone from Girlschool to Iron Maiden.

As the excesses of the rock scene started losing their appeal, Mike changed tack, playing in a variety of soul and Motown acts, before taking a break from music for a few years.

Returning through the burgeoning tribute scene, Mike found himself playing in Europe's top tribute act to AOR giants Journey and Toto, and now finds himself drawing upon his broad musical history to cover the extensive repertoire of Rewind."
