Vocalist, Keyboard.


At present, in a 3 piece out of Palatine. Bass, drums and guitar. Primarily looking for a singer (and if you can play guitar that's cool too). And possibly a Keyboardist. Music is a mix of Doom, Prog, Stoner rock, with a bit of occasional funkiness to it. But it's all heavy stuff.

Pro capabilities and equipment. There isn't too much I can't learn note for note. Or at least close enough that no one could tell.

I'm in the NW burbs not far from the Woodfield mall. *** james kroll (all one word) at c o m c a s t dot net.

First and foremost. Tony Iommi. As he taught me how to play guitar, whether he knows it or not. But branching out from a lead guitar perspective, lots of influences. Joe Satriani. Steve Vai. Paul Gilbert. Frank Zappa. Ritchie Kotzen. I like players who have something original to say.

Instrument experience:

Lead Guitar:


Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Combo. Customized Hughes and Kettner Mk2 head paired with a Mesa 4x12 slant cabinet. And too many guitars to list :). My pride and joys are my Ibanez J Custom (in Amethyst), my customized Caparison Horus, and my USA Jackson Soloist in Trans Solar.
