Looking for very good, and solid, players

My name is Robert. I live in Burlington, Ontario, and I am a long-time resident here. I have been playing bass for a very long time; 35 years and counting. Nothing really fancy, people; I am just a solid rock bassist. I can also sing a little; both lead and harmonies. I play many genres of music; but my main interest, my main love, is classic rock. I like power trios, as I love a good challenge; a larger band can be fun, too......power trios are great, IF you have the right chemistry happening.
It is my goal to work with a cover band who realizes that stage presence is a huge part of any live show. I don't want to play with a bunch of shoe-gazers, as energy is key. I believe that you need to give your fans something to look at. A band doesn't have to have matching suits, or provide choreography, to be entertaining and interesting. I am looking for professional, accomplished and mature players to work with.
I own, and use, pro-quality gear. I run my Ibanez and other basses through a 400 watt amp. I have a fair amount of recording experience, and have experience in sound reinforcement and lighting, as well. I am reliable, easygoing, and I don't have a huge ego. I am a good, solid player, and I take direction and constructive criticism well. My philosophy is that music just HAS to be fun (if it is to be worthwhile doing), and a great sense of humor goes a long way.

Thanks for reading my novel :).... Give me a shout, folks!!
