Mike Watt need no introduction.
We met Watt when ESTEL opened for him sometime in 2005.
We’ve recorded two albums with him and he contributed a poem for ‘The Bones of Something’.
A great supporter of the band and a great man.
Here’s a bio –
Michael David Watt (born , 1957 in Portsmouth, Virginia) is an American bass guitarist, singer and songwriter.
He is best-known for co-founding the rock bands Minutemen, dos, and fIREHOSE; as of 2003, he is also the bassist for the reunited Stooges and a member of the art rock/jazz/punk/improv group Banyan as well as many other post-Minutemen projects.
Though Watt has not had much mainstream success or visibility, he is often cited as a key figure in the development of American alternative rock: the Red Hot Chili Peppers dedicated their hugely successful Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991) to him. On November 1 2008, Watt received the Bass Player Magazine lifetime achievement award, presented by Flea.
