Band to Join.

ABOUT

I started out in my teens playing the original punk rock scene in Boston back in the wee early 80s when clubs like Bunrattys, the Channel, Cantone's and Jasper's were hopping but put the guitar down for a while to do other things when I realized I wasn't going to be a rock star and overall being a full timer rocker wasn't looking like it was going to be a wise career move. I picked it back up seriously about 15 years ago and started playing with classic rock cover bands. Currently I'm in a very busy hard rock cover band (Third Man In) and an old school garage punk original band (CRUCNHTIME)

If you're looking for a solid guitar player with transportation, gear, commitment, ability to help fund whatever is needed, and not a burned out poser flake looking to re-live the glory days, feel free to reach out.

Influences

I have been hugely influenced by the Ramones, The Cult, Iggy, Cheap Trick, The Clash, The Damned, Buzzcocks, The Jam, Pistols.

For the classic rock stuff, I'm more into the harder side..Thin Lizzy, pre-"Draw the Line" Aerosmith, Kiss, Free, Bad Company, LZ, ZZTop, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, SoundGarden.

I'm looking for a good opportunity to meet some good players, play out and make some good music. Originals would be ideal, but a good cover band is cool too.
