ABOUT

Greetings & Salutations everyone,
I am 100% sold out born again Christian Man of God. I believe my Lord is the author of creativity and the Master Musician. I believe we can be creative in many diverse ways that can be off the beaten path and to the beat of a different drum.

I am looking to form an all Christian band playing any and all styles, but mostly rock & roll, pop, hard rock, fusion, alternative and heavy metal. I am inspired by bands such as Stryper, Petra, Phil Keaggy, Russ Taff, Michael W Smith, Rick Cua, Steven Curtis Chapman, Al Denson, Michael Card. These are all Christian artists. And of course a multitude of bands I grew up with and inspired me immensely. Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Everly Brothers, Del Shannon, Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Simon & Garfunkel, Aerosmith, Sweet, Golden Earing, Foreigner, Lover Boy, Black Sabbath, Iron Butterfly, Pilot, Stevie Wonder, Van Halen, David Bowie, Kiss, B-52s, U2, Police, REM, Bruce Springsteen, Alarm, Outfield, Crowded House, Ratt, Poison, Cinderella, Eric Johnson, Robert Fripp, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Michael Hedges, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Nirvana, Queens Ryche, Stone Temple Pilot, Filter, Ramones, Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, Weezer, You get the idea (LOL)!

EQUIPMENT

I sold off an Equipment List to die for many years ago. I still have my 1986 BC Rich Warlock totally customized spaceship guitar ax! I am presently looking at Taylors, Guilds for acoustics, and Ibanez electrics, Gibson Les Paul. I have some BOSS Roland effects gear. A 2 Track & 4 Track Digital BOSS Roland Recorders to track musical ideas. As the band forms in God's timing I have access to a lot of mega cool used concert level sound equipment to blow the teeth out of a T-Rex! The money is not a problem. The Musician's come first, the Band second, the Music and then the equipment. May God bless you in all your musical endeavors.
