I'm from Toledo, Ohio and started playing bass at 15. Joined my first band at 17 with some high school friends and moved to Los Angeles in 1990. Within a few years, I began gigging with my band The Andersons! (with Robbie Rist on guitar) as a part of the burgeoning LA power pop scene.
That led to playing on a pair of posthumous Pete Ham (Badfinger) releases, 7 Park Avenue and Golders Green, touring on bass with Dave Davies from The Kinks in the early aughts, filling in with The Smithereens, The Cowsills, playing and recording with Steve Barton (of Translator fame) and finally playing and recording with The Bangles from ’08 to the present. I also do the occasional gig with Matthew Sweet.      http://www.reverendguitars.com/interviews/derrick-anderson
