Influences

I learned by playing along with Metallica, Megadeth, and Rush CDs. I can read music well, I played bass for the Auburn University jazz band while I was a student. My favorite artists are Zappa, Rush, Dream Theater, and Spock's Beard/Neal Morse, but I am not (necessarily) looking for a band that performs obscure music. Most but not all of my gigging experience has been covering stuff you might hear on the radio.

EQUIPMENT

KIesel 6 string bass, Washburn fretted and fretless basses, amp, effects, mics and cables, and a reliable car with low mileage I don't mind driving to gigs or rehearsal.
