Old Bill & the Bassman


Legendary Pompey bass player Colin Wood (Renegades, J Crow Combo etc) has just been on BBC TV’s South Today – interviewed in a Vox Pop piece about the locations of local Police Stations.

  1. Interesting…. there’s a lot of places that people wouldn’t think of… Which ones did he come up with?

    • No suggestions – he just observed that in the modern age people don’t often go to police stations, they ring or whatever. The news is that the current ones are mostly closing but there is going to be a new ‘hub’ somewhat in the middle of the island. He didn’t mention his bass playing.

  2. Actually,they did criticize my bass skills! I got angry and abusive. I may be charged with “having an offensive person about my weapon” (axe)
