Throughout time, the bassist has always been in the shadows of successful bands. While the lead guitarists continuously hog the spotlight, playing some frenzied, seizure inducing solo, the bassist is often seen sulking off in the background, pondering why he/she is never worshipped as much as their 6 string brethren.
But then came along Dan, who decided enough was enough! He set to change people’s opinions on the much maligned bass by showing off his virtuosic skills, incredible musicianship, and devilish good looks.
Dan McPharlin is the bass guitarist for the musical Tick-Tock. When he’s not jamming away, he likes to indulge in his excessive ego and write glorified biographies about himself. He also imagines life without hypothetical scenarios.
