ABOUT

I have travelled the world, worked on music soundtracks, did a lot lot lot of gigs, can play most anything a modern rock band needs, but I love to sing and write songs. I am in shape, still have hair, and typically get carded to buy cigs if I have shaved recently, despite my theoretical age (hey we're musicians, we age gracefully). I have a good knowledge of recording studios, live sound (was a soundman for 3 years in a very large rock club), I like beer, cigarettes, I don't like band-drama or pissy perfectionists... have a hard time getting along with them at practice, just quit worrying and rock it is my ideal.
