Bon Voyage Dougie 5:
After nearly a decade of playing in Bigtopp our bass player Doug is hanging up his axe. Since its genesis, Doug has been a driving force in the band and his departure is incredibly sad for all of us.
After hundreds of gigs, festival slots and thousands of band practices, Doug has reluctantly decided he needs to concentrate on the future.
He and the love of his life are having a baby. Yes, Daddy Doug. I know he’s going to be an incredible father and we all wish him the absolute best with parenthood.
It’s really surreal to think we were teenagers when we started Bigtopp all those years ago – such little talent but with huge ambitions to play songs. In fact it’s only because of the band that Doug and I became friends… and that stands for so many of the band, past and present. If we’d never come together to write music who knows if we’d all been friends now? AND he would never have got his band name – Dougie 5 – ask him about it – he likes telling that story.
As his band mate I’m sad he’s leaving but as one of his best friends I’m so happy that he and his lady are preparing for a little bambino.
After all these years of performing, the hardcore Toppers will know how much groove Doug gives to Bigtopp and how incredibly easy going he is to speak to at shows. His style has always helped evolve the sound of the band and this is evident in our second album Next Stage.
Doug finished his Bigtopp days on his last ever tour with us this April and his bass vibrations were second to none. We will be announcing Doug’s replacement shortly but for now, thank you for taking the time to read this post and have a great week.
