It’s no secret that our beloved bass player in Miss Sydney and the Downtown Saints has had an incredible career in music. From starting in The Sweet Inspirations as an opening act for Elvis Presley in Las Vegas followed by a call in the early 70’s to join the Steve Miller Band, to recording an touring for over 50 years with the likes of Dave Mason, The Pointer Sisters, John Fogerty, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and so many more, it almost seems unreal that someone with this kind of resume would be part of our little band here in Edmonds, WA. But that’s the amazing thing about music.
With such an amazing career and all that he has given for so long, the man deserves to take it a bit more easy and enjoy life here in this little corner of the Pacific Northwest. But as any musician knows, people who are passionate about music will never stop doing what they love. So for us in MSDS, it means that we are blessed with a dear friend and fellow band-mate to collaborate with and enjoy every moment laughing, creating, and entertaining together with someone that just happens to have accomplished countless amazing things as a musician.
Recently Gerald sat down with Bryan Smith, host of the Dreampath Podcast to talk in more depth about his career and some key milestones both as a musician and in his personal life. We encourage you to take time and listen to this great interview with our bass player and friend.
