Ian Edmundson

Hi!
I'm a 4, 5, 8 and 12-string bassist (and also a guitarist) from Bolton, Lancashire.

My taste in music is melodic classic rock, glam rock, power-pop. I like to play the kind of stuff that people know. Good time music. While it is certainly true that, yes, I AM on a bit of a mission to civilise, I want to entertain people, not educate them.


I have been in a few great little rock bands that I have been quite proud of, over the last 30 years including The Kerbcrawlers, Rising Force, Bad Habits, Stranded, Mother's Ruin and The Peppermint Dream and now I happily sing and play bass with The THREE.

I also served periods of time in a couple of other, lesser, bands that turned out to be quite dodgy, despite my best efforts to humanize and improve them musically, which I prefer to forget about, some of which were awfully bad mistakes that I should forever apologise for. My friends will know which ones. I have really sinned badly in my time and I am truly sorry.

See here for live videos and studio recordings.

Like a lot of other people, I'm a big fan of guitars and basses!
This site has photos of the gear that I have collected over the years.

I am the curator of www.slayed.co.uk. You can say hello via Facebook or this page.

On a serious note, I also have a page about prostate cancer here that may be helpful to some guys who wish to take the time to have a quick read.

Thanks very much for visiting,
Ian
