SEEKINGBand to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
Multi-instrumentalist guitar and drummer. Though I am an accomplished drummer, having played in a variety of genres for more than 30 years including, jazz, rock, funk, progressive styles, I prefer playing guitar. Currently looking to start or join a band as a lead/rhythm player and hopefully focus on originals. Have recorded with bands in the past.

I pull from a lot of places. Got my start with Rock and Progressive Rock. More recently into pop and rock tunes from various decades.
The Beatles were my first love musically.
Drumming - many years playing jazz. Influenced by drummers from this genre and by: Coltrane, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea.
Rock/Progressive: Rush, Yes, King Crimson, Marillion, Kate Bush, the Fixx, Led Zeppelin, Porcupine Tree, Karnivool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc...
Michael Hedges for his soundscaping... Pat Metheny for his guitar tone, melodies and textures.
Those are my interests and what I listen to. Mostly though I'm up for a good groove and can keep a good rhythm going to support a band.
