Brent Coursey


Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano.


Started off, summer of '70, taught myself acoustic guitar. High school present (to myself) was a bass. Played till Army, 4/73 - when I got settled in NY, I went back to playing, made infinitely more $$$ playing Rock 'n Roll then playing "army." Spent miserable year Ft. Benning, GA, played in a country band there, After discharge, played in a (we thought it was a) "reggae" band - quite popular. Played in a horrific country band to get thru college. Have mainly played in Church here in Ohio, that definitely seems to be where the best musicians are! Last "gigging" experience was with a "Beatles tribute band." Horrible, but since I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Rolling Stones freak, it was a lesson learning all those wonderful songs I grew up listening to.
