Bill Fitzsimmons – Bass Guitar
I was born in Balsall Heath, so a Brummy born and bred. I am a self taught bass player and although I am left handed, I play a right handed bass guitar – work that one out!!
I formed a band with my friends in the early seventies called Back Alley and we gigged in and around Birmingham. After the band split I was in and out of quite a few other bands with different people. Dave and I formed Nightblade and I love playing bass with them.
Instruments – I play a Sandberg bass going through a Trace Elliott 600watt stack featuring two 10″ and two 15″ speakers.
I am looking forward to many more gigs with Nightblade – Carlsberg don’t do bands, but if they did they would be like Nightblade!!
