not content; dissatisfied; discontented.
a restless desire or craving for something one does not have.
I'm looking to form a band that wants to play some good old 80's style, sunset strip, sleeze rock. I'm not looking for a platinum record or anything, music is just something that has always been a part of me and only recently was my passion for it reignited.
Playing cover tunes at clubs and bars would also be cool to me, so throwing that into the mix along with original material would be fine with me.
Guns N' Roses, Buckcherry, Aerosmith, Metallica, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Velvet Revolver, Tesla, Rush, AC/DC, Poison, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Van Halen, The Doors and probably a dozen or so others. But my music probably focuses more on influences (musically) by G'N'R', Buckcherry, Metallica and Velvet Revolver and influences (lyrically...I hope) by many of the above mentioned bands, but especially G'N'R', Aerosmith, Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs. Sounds crazy, right? Life is about discontent. It helps us grow and change as long as we're open to confronting that which makes us discontent in our lives. Much of the music mentioned above fits that bill.

Members Of Band
Currently, just myself: Richie Winters half-decent singer (improving all the time) and guitar player. I'm also teaching myself keyboard and bass. But I'd rather focus on singing and playing some guitar and finding a band to fill in the rest.
