Prescott Niles was the original bassist for the Knack. His driving licks can be heard on the classic recording of “My Sherona” and his strong rhythmic teaming with band drummer Bruce Gary has been the source of inspiration for a generation of garage bands the world over. 

Since 2013 he has played bass with Mike Pinera's Classic Rock All-Stars and Missing Persons.
