ABOUT

Are you over 55? Retired?

I'm looking to organize 4-5 other musicians 55+ to play rock styled music. I've been selecting specific covers which can be "reworked" them to make them "original". It's a hybrid concept between copies and originals. The end result will be Rock and or Rockin' Blues.

My goal isn't to go out gigging. I don't need to gig to live. Been there, done that. At over 65 yrs old, 4 to 6 GOOD gigs yearly is enough. Not bar gigs, weddings or corporate stuff, but GOOD gigs where we would do a single set.

I've been playing guitar since July 2018. I don't play keys any more. I ended that in 2001.

Even though I've been playing guitar a relatively short amount of time, I have a great ear, lots of pro experience, and lots to bring to the table.

Influences

I love all music, just so you know...Rock, Hard Rock, Blues, Funk, Soul, Motown, Classic Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Beautiful Music. and Classical. But his project is going to be Rock & Roll. I practice guitar 15-30 minutes every night, and am available one day or night per week for creative brain-storming sessions, and rehearsals.

The Las Vegas show photo is from the nineties. I co-produced this Elvis show, arranged a little, played piano, and sang back-up harmonies and unison parts.

I sequenced the Earth Wind & Fire medley when I used to play keys. The drums, bass, horn parts, percussion, that's all me. Or should I say that WAS me. The song "The Journey" was also sequenced on my old Atari. It was dup'd onto a cassette where it sat until recently.

The band was a computer-based trio with a female vocalist, a guitar player/vocalist, and myself on keys and vocals. On this medley, I'm singing back ups and playing some live keyboard parts. I did the sequencing on an old Atari ST1040!! Archaic! LOL

Sequencing was tedious then, and maybe that's why I quit music for 20 years. Now, I want to play with real human musicians.

I wrote the Song "I Can Take A Joke" around 1980. I played keys and sang harmonies and back ups then. That/my band M3tro Hotel played around the L.A. circuit at that time and opened for some good rock and metal acts who's names you'd recognize.
