ABOUT

Mature Senior - Playing pro since the 60's. Looking for a no-nonsense band of adults to play out 2-3 times a month. Pro gear and attitude, no drama and expect the same. . I show up on time and put in the time to learn the tunes. I like hard rock like early Stones, Laura Cox band, etc., but don't mind playing anything as long as it is rhythmic and tasty. Some of the new Country is pretty good as is some Americana. I have played with so many bands, made music videos, toured the US and recorded in the studio many times. I am also an audio engineer. Sorry - I am not into driving all over the city for rehearsals - you must be somewhat close.

Influences

Cream, Beatles, Tom Petty, Doobies, Steely Dan, Allman Brothers, Stones, etc, etc. Lee Sklar the bassist.
I've always felt my playing was a combo of Jack Bruce and Sir Paul. Heavy rhythm with some nice melody.
Until recently, I had been playing with 3 bands - Easy Classic Rock, Hard Blues and Originals. All have fallen apart for various reasons.
