MIKE WATT.

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.
