ABOUT

Former lead guitar player in blues / southern rock band in the 1990's. Quit to pursue life, wife and strife (career). Picked up guitar again and it's slowly all coming back to me. Recently started playing drums and a little bass guitar (what guitar player doesn't?). I am more serious about the drums and guitar than the bass. Havn't played a real gig in over 20. Looking for a jam situation to play with others.

Influences

On guitar, way too many to list. Mainly focused on the Chicago and Texas style blues greats. Also some white guys too, like Moore, Allman, Betts, Clapton, Bonnamassa, Trout, Ellis, Buchannon, etc. Picking up on bluegrass and outlaw country recently. Love Steve Earle.

On bass, no one in particular, but I do appreciate a good players like John Paul Jones, Chuck Rainey, Allan Woody, Dave Schools, Les Claypool, Charles Mingus, Otell Burrdige, etc.

On drums, still pretty new at it, but I do like to play shuffles so naturally Purdie, Carlock, Pocarrao, Layton, etc.
