ABOUT

Used to play semi-pro in the early 90's - opened for a lot of label acts. Played in a cover band for years in Buffalo NY. Looking for people who want to play heavier stuff (punk/metal/alternative rock) - originals or covers. I write songs and have a small home studio where I am currently recording new stuff.

Influences

Blues guitarist by training - used to play in the guitar ensemble in college. My old teacher as a kid was the rhythm guitarist for Chuck Berry. Learned all the classic stuff - spent most of my youth playing punk and metal shows in the late 80's early 90's. Many influences, but I like stuff heavier and somewhat aggressive.

EQUIPMENT

I have tons of equipment. 27 guitars - lots of Gibsons (12 LPs), some Fenders, some Ibanez. Mesa Dual Rectifier, ART tube/solid state head, and several cabinets. Ibanez and Fender basses. I have several rigs that can play anything from bars to big venues. You name it I probably own it. Home studio equipment as well.
