David 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! To learn more about this great band whose career was getting ready to take off, click the button to check out the Pilot Pages!
