ABOUT

I have played drums, guitar, bass and vocals professionally for nearly 30 years now. A few years ago I was in a motorcycle accident and lost my right leg, crushed my hip and lost my entire left back muscles and crushed a good portion of my teeth. This hasn't effected my drumming at all as I have adapted. My teeth are under reconstruction so that my singing wont be effected. I have been writing songs in the meantime. Most of them are more of a punk rock style but I also write a more unique alternative (I guess) style. I am looking to either join a band or put on together. If we don't end up using my songs I would be okay with it but it would also be nice to at least do a few of them. I do have all the needed instruments for playing drums, guitar, bass and vocals. Also have recording capabilities.
