Indeed, the foreword is written by a veritable who’s who of the bass playing world. Also, Andy endorses Warwick basses and as such references to the products are littered through the book - but having said that, this book isn’t a sales pitch - I think it represents the appreciation Andy has for his bass gear. I’ll be honest, I don’t know a single bass player who doesn’t love his (or her) gear.
In his book Andy talks about the ups and downs of his life experiences that empowered him to grow and develop into who he is today. He discusses key life events including his first bass (if I remember from the clinic I went to - the same as me - a Hondo Precision Bass copy…!). He also talks about his life growing up in a rural area and his love of the great outdoors.
Like me, Andy is an Iron Maiden fan. Unlike me, he loves jazz. Andy gives an excellent insight on meeting his bass playing heroes and how those meetings influenced his life; how gracious and generous these mega-stars were with their time to a young impressionable bass player. The most important message in Andy’s book (that’s missing from many musician biography bios) is the importance of the bass player’s rhythm and groove; to support the song you’re playing.
I think ‘Passion and Action’ is a great book for musicians, bass players and anyone who likes a good, honest account of a working musician’s life.

It's so easy to see what Hans-Peter Wilfer saw in Andy Irvine on their first meeting. I see it in Andy's videos and it's there behind that (forever) smiling face and it resonates throughout his playing, his teachings and now his writing as well. The eagerness and almost insane passion to share, not just bass playing, but the power of music in general with as many people as he possibly can.
This book proves he is at the forefront of a new generation of extremely talented musicians. Ones who would rather teach and share their talents with as many people as possible rather than form big extravagant bands to tool off in. Ones who treat everyone just the same, no matter what their ability.
This book proves he can groove. And not just with a bass in his hands, but with life in his hands. I can honestly say I've seen most of his videos, but as it would happen, I never actually have my bass in my hand. But his lessons have always stuck with me. Andy always seems to have something worthwhile and profound to say. Whether he intends it or not!
But in the end, the greatest part of reading this book was how the whole time, you pretty much felt as if you were sitting on Andys' back porch, sipping a big ol' coffee while listening to the bass player regale you with stories and anecdotes of life on the road, off the road, the ups and downs of being a full time musician and ultimately his aspiration to share the bodaciousness of bass playing and the absolute awesomeness of music.
A completely worthwhile read.
Within its contents, the reader will find that no reward comes without sacrifices and only through resilience and perseverance that one can achieve their desired goals.
The reader will learn about how Andy has dedicated his life to his craft and along the way gone through trials and tribulations that would test even the bravest of people.
I felt that throughout reading, i was taken along for part of Andy's journey as most chapters start with the author recalling his life whilst on a plane or in a foreign country. It is clear that this Musicians Journey is definitely still in motion.
It is honestly a really motivational read, not catering just for musicians but for anyone that wanting to learn how one can triumph through adversity. The author has also given us some suggested tools and framework that we can also apply to our own lives.
My favorite quote - "people who ignore the rules and break the mold who are the true champions of evolution and creativity. They have the unique ability to reinvent and innovate" - Simply brilliant and resonated strongly with me.
Thank you Andy for sharing your story and i wish you continued success long into the future.
