In 1984 I read a book titled Electronic Projects for Musicians. I was 13 years old. Nearly 30 years later I met the book’s author, Craig Anderton. Needless to say, I gushed, probably to the extent of embarrassing us both. Even after that chance meeting, I am happy to report that Craig accepted my invitation to interview him! Whether you think you know everything about the man or know not a stitch, I urge you to check out Craig’s website , then read the One Louder Magazine interview with him. His resume is so deep that this was, by far, the most difficult interview I’ve had to date…I didn’t know where to start!
Also in this issue is an interview with Dan Martin, owner and inventor of the Basshanger. Are you tired of tripping over tripod stands or having them fall apart on you? Are you running out of space on stage? A Basshanger just might suit your needs. My bassist owns two of them and I’ll buy a couple when he finally designs one for a Marshall stack [wink wink nudge nudge]! (more…)

Dan Martin has been playing bass for nearly his entire life, including occasional tours throughout the United States, jamming with friends in various locations, home recording and more. After 20+ years of he and his merry band mates tripping over and breaking multiple guitar stands, Dan decided he’d had enough. This year, Dan celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the Basshanger.
