Auditioning a Bass Player
While the band was finishing up
recording and mixing the album, they realized they needed
someone to play either bass or guitar especially for
the touring that would be planned. So they held auditions.
First they auditioned bass players but did not find
a suitable match. Then while they were auditioning guitar
players, Ian Bairnson came
by Abbey Road to see how
they were coming along. He asked David what he was doing.
David replied auditioning guitar players. In response
to Ian's "Why didn't you
ask me?", David replied "I
didn't think you would be interested." If
Ian was interested, no need to waste time with auditions.
He would become the 4th member of Pilot!
