I'm looking for vocals and bass, I might already have a drummer, who want to go out and be the band that we as fans always wanted to go see. I've always believed that if that is your intention, to make music that will outlive you, you have to know the business end of the music twice as well as someone who just wants to be a whore. I have a comprehensive and thorough business strategy and a support team, but if you're looking to be a hair metal band, or the rock and roll equivalent of Lady Gaga I am not for you.

This is a bio I have up on : About me:
Who am I?
-When not on stage inspiring people to get crazy and alarm the local (or national) authorities, I'm spending much of my time raising funds for animal rights groups and people who want to make the world a better place, which often means challenging the status quo. Revolution, baby!
-In addition to playing guitar, I also sing. Backups. When I get the urge to sing lead, I turn to my shower.
-If this whole profile has you rolling your eyes convinced I'm some kind of guilt tripping peacenik... almost!
I’m pretty peaceful, except that I will sugar your gas tank if you're part of the establishment. j/k But if I ever did, since I’m a damn smooth salesman (shyster), you would walk away actually feeling guilty that when I sugared your gas tank, it didn't really destroy the engine.
Damn you! ; )
This pretty much sums up my philosophy:
"If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution." - Emma Goldman, Anarchist
The other translation of that quote, "A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having", made it into V for Vendetta.
Rock and roll concerts. Civil disobedience.
The best way to judge how successful each one was is to count how many people were arrested! j/k
As a guitarist, I judge my music by three things:
1: Will people still listen to it waaaay down the line, and not just six months from now?
2: If it's not hard and fast, or slow and dangerous, at the very least can people f*$ to it?
3: If it doesn't inspire people to overthrow something, it's not much in the way of rock and roll, now is it?
When I look for other musicians, the most important thing to me is that they be determined to go out and be the band that we, as fans, always wanted to go see.
