Crackers this is Mike. Man I'm the new bassist for L.A.O. I'm 28 and have been playing the four strings for about 14 years. The Bassist from Iron Maiden has to be my most biggest influence on playing bass guitar. I'm orginally from Seatle, home of some of the most well known musicians. I met L.A.O. sometime in November and we hocked up one night, from then on it's been awsome.
