WHERE ARE ALL YOU DIE HARD, WANT TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD AND PLAY SOME KICK ASS ROCK & ROLL ORIGINAL WRITING MUSICIANS ANYWAY?!?!?!
Lets get together and write some kick ass music and enjoy OUR OWN MUSIC!!!
COVERS ARE SIMPLE TO LEARN AND PLAY, ORIGINALS ARE WHAT SEPERATES THE MEN FROM THE BOYS AND THE WOMEN FROM THE GIRLS, and the monkeys from the... other monkeys!!!?
Played in pro caliber metal and hard rock bands. Played around Chicago and the Burbs. Looking to fill the musical void that seems to always be there. I'm a talker when it comes to improv or leads(that doesn't mean a bragger. It's a style of lead playimg that some say sounds like talking with the notes but not to the extreme of actually trying to sound like words ie:Steve Vai with David Lee Roth), with technical flares when appropriate. Speed is not a problem. Open minded musically. If I was to join a band with full commitment it would have to be a mostly original band. I try to write my originals with groove & feel. They are sometimes dark, melodic or heavy, powerful or blues based. I like heavy metal but not pure speed and no feel. I love a good rhythm (can you tell?)I also like classical, jazz, & blues etc.. Don't mind getting a little political with the lyrics occasionally. It just has to feel right. I don't like trying to force any kind of direction if I can help it.
Have a couple dozen original Ideas that I think are relevent to todays scene and I'd like to develop them along with yours if an original band is formed. Would like to do some session work in the studio. Recording demos for bands I've played in is the extent of my studio experience.(630-803-0647)
