About Us

Bill Fitzsimmons - Bass Guitar

I was born in Balsall Heath, so a Brummy born and bred.  I am a self taught bass player and although I am left handed, I play a right handed bass guitar - work that one out!!  I formed a band with my friends in the early seventies called Back Alley and we gigged in and around Birmingham.  After the band split I was in and out of quite a few other bands with different people.  Dave and I formed Nightblade and I love playing bass with them.

Instruments - I play a Sandberg bass going through a Trace Elliott 600watt stack featuring two 10" and two 15" speakers

I am looking forward to many more gigs with Nightblade - Carlsberg don't do bands, but if they did they would be like Nightblade!!
