Keyboard, Bass Guitar.


Jumped back into the scene a few years ago as the drummer for the reincarnation of FAST Suzi. Now that the band's been appropriately plugged - here's the dirt on me:

I've played for 34 years and still try to practice everyday. I have professional gear and transport. I also have a family, a professional career with a fairly predictable schedule so I've gotten back into recreational gigging. I have been professionally trained via lessons for many years, and can read music. More importantly, I'm told I have good meter. I tend to practice with a metronome at least twice a week 'cause no one is perfect.

I'm told I have an immense music library as I've been collecting for many years. I'm very confident I could easily nail down anything in a few minutes.

Let me be clear - I'm very committed to doing this for fun.

Looking for a bass player for a hard rock band. Must be at least in your thirties / forties or fifties, no younger. Hard rock and some 80's metal, along with some possible originals. We practice twice a week and are looking to gig only a couple of times a month. Only those individuals with lives besides their bass guitar are invited. Please have good gear and love 70's and 80's hard rock. No poser metal, no nu-metal, but no Doors, Doobies type classic rock. Think Humble Pie, Aerosmith, Bad Company with some Whitesnake too. We rehearse in NW burbs. Email for more info. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!!!!
