SEEKINGVocalist - Bass, Bass Guitar.
Update: *** At this point, we have a well rounded out band. Guitar, Guitar/Vocals, Drummer. Everyone is very experienced and capable. Focusing solely on writing music (mix of 6 and 7 string stoner rock, doom, thrash, etc .... lots of different directions but it seems to be blending). Just need a solid Bass player, ideally one who can do some backing vocals. *** james kroll (all one word) at c o m c a s t dot net.
I've been playing guitar for the better portion of 40 years. What still gets me going after all this time, is a thick, powerful, inspiring Heavy metal groovy riff, some piercing vocals and some killer lead overlays. While I was told I would outgrow this problem many years ago, it never transpired.
My writing and listening preferences are rooted in traditional doomey riffs, a la Black Sabbath. Big bends, big riffs. I've been playing long enough to emulate just about anyone's lead style. I can do a little bit of everything. But my passion is smart, fusiony ecclectic, lead work along the lines of Satriani, Vai, etc ... Writing wise I thrive on a seven string, writing thick Stoner rock style riffs reminiscent of Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu, Kyuss, etc ...
I can write riffs all day long. And maybe piece a few together. But writing a true song is something I need other musicians to help bring to fruition. I am open to writing, giging, performing a mix of originals and covers, etc ... Just looking to have some great times playing, and sharing the music I love.

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.
- Lead Guitar:
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Combo. Hughes and Kettner Mk2 head paired with a Mesa 4x12 slant cabinet. And too many guitars to list :). My pride and joy are my Ibanez 2012 RG J Custom (in Amethyst). My Les Paul Elegant and my 7 string Schecter Hellraiser, which is one bad ass MF of a guitar.
