Guitarist and lead vocalist for Blackleg Miner. In addition to our own material, we're firing up tunes by artists like Alice Cooper, UFO, Brother Cane, The Dictators, Ramones, Pat Travers, Motorhead, Cheap Trick, Little Caesar, Backyard Babies, Gary Clark Jr, and many more --- industrial-strength rock & roll that your mother will almost certainly disapprove of! (Well, MY mom disapproves!!! ROTFLMAO) We don't play the same cover songs that every other band plays! *** Feel free to email me --- cjpmmd99 at gee male dot com --- or dial/text me at 443 379 six three one five! C.J.

Whether you've been playing 6 months or 60 years, whether some armchair critic thinks you're great or thinks you suck, whether you've toured the world or have only toured your basement, whether you've sold 10 million records or none at all --- if you strap on your guitar and play the sonofabitch like you MEAN it, then you're an influence of mine. Some of the pros whom I have admired include Pat Travers, Bernie Torme, Robin Trower, Tony Iommi, Billy Gibbons, Paul Kossoff, Gary Moore, Peter Green, Terje Rypdal, Robbie Robb, Leslie West, Ted Nugent, Bill Nelson, and Ronnie Montrose. Don't get me wrong, I can't play exactly like any of them.....I can only play like ME. For vocal influences, think Jimmy Dewar, Phil Mogg, Paul Rodgers, and Robert Palmer.
