ABOUT

Hey there, well I'm a drummer who likes to play all different types of music and really open to all styles, well atleast I'll attempt to play them, but Ive done everything from Rock, Metal, Pop, Blues, Reggae and everything in between.

I'm currently looking for a band or musicians to start something new in a melodic rock type of band.

I'm 42 but can still hang with the best of them. I can play in the pocket, throw some cool fills when needed or be a busy drummer...I prefer to let the music dictate what the drums need to be. I also know my dynamics so all you singers and guitar players not to worry I won't be banging and crashing while your doing your thing.

Just want to find some cats I can really play with without all the drama and egos that are so prevelant here in New Mexico. I'm not a task master in the studio, I just wanna play some music, get along with everyone and play out. I don't mind practicing once or twice a week in the evenings or a weekend jam, more than that I've seen way too many bands burnout. I work and have a busy and physical job so I hope all the band members show up ontime for practice since I hate wasting time and prolonging pratices becuase somebody forgot a cord or wants to B.S. about their new X3000 Flux Capacitor Hemi-Engine they just put in to their old Gremlin, save it for afterwards.
So if thats not too much to ask for I hope to hear from u soon.
John
