ABOUT

Male, lot’s of experience, studio time and live time, great gear, guitars, amps, keys, percussion etc., easy to work with. Understands music and arranging. Wants to step in and learn my guitar parts and Wants to play live again. Wants Pro Musicians and also to have fun. Prefers tight arrangements with freedom for loose improvisation, ala the Allman Brothers. Open to a fun classic tribute band situation or a good material cover band. Dependable. Can play at moderate volume. Has gear to play at loud stage volume, but prefers not to rehearse at that level. Likes Princeton/Deluxe volume level. Sings at a lower tenor range. Previous vocal covers included John Waite, Billy Idol, MJ, Glenn Frey, Golden Earing, INXS, 38 Special, Garth, to name a few.... (and don’t place me next to the bass player, then tell me I’m too loud!)

EQUIPMENT

Excellent variety in musical gear. Many choices in guitars, amps & cabs & pedals. (Tone chaser) Fender, Marshall, Bogner, 65 Amps, Matchless, Egnater, Dr Z, VHT, etc. (whatever is called for) Prefers Tele’s, Strat’s, 335’s, Les Paul’s. (Likes fat necks) I Like a bit of grit, when appropriate, and lots of sustain, no mudd, and varied sparing effects, with just a little bit of delay.... The endless tone quest goes on....
