beside myself


Band to Join.


I have been playing Drum/Percussion for 35 + Years. I also play the Flute and just recently picked up the Saxophone. I am versatile. I have good fundamentals on Drums and would like too think I can hold my own too anyone out there. For the last 2 Years I have been doing Studio Work (In Detroit) too make Money. I am looking for a good and stable Band. I would allow my Studio too be open too the Band. I prefer working with a New Band but would work with an existing Band if it was stable and serious. I would prefer Writing Originals but would do Covers for the right Band. You can contact me Home here in Fort Wayne 260-744-9959 or at my Studio 260-579-8761. My Email Address is beside.myself

I grew up listening to many Bands, Emerson Lake and Palmer to Soft Machine or Bob Seger to Johnny Cash. My interest was (at least to me) to listen to a Variety of Musicians and how they composed. I also love Jazz. I think all good Musicians tend to look at Jazz seriously as they grow as Musicians. Being a Christian I do enjoy a heaver side Christian Music. Not Punk but at least with a freaking beat. Make no mistake about it I am not a Right Wing fanatic. I say live and let live. I did Pick Up the Flute when I was younger for a couple of reasons. I choose the flute too help me lean too Write Music and of course I played along with Jethro Tull. LOL. I recently have learned to play the Saxophone and it adds too my versatility. All the instruments that I play are applicable too jazz. I will put a Gun to my head if I have to play another Johnny Cash Song. I am not saying I dont like country because I do. Its just that I do have my limits. I would prefer to write.


White Pearl (Original Imports) with other Percussion Instruments. I also play Flute and some Sax. I have my own Sound System and of course Mic.
