ABOUT

The songs you are listening to were recorded at Mind Rage Music in phoenix. we had a technical problem with the head set and could not get the music and drums to come through at the same time. .mindragemusic
I am a very experienced, very committed drummer who enjoys progressive styles of music, rock, funk, jazz, cover band, I spend 2 hours a day practicing, I like to play to music like Deep Purple (with Tommy Bolin) Dream Theater, Kansas, Boston and other types of more progressive rock, funk jazz.. Most people my age are stuck in the sixties and cant get out of it, they wont learn anything new, and they only want to play the same old music they been playing for years. I want to be able to turn loose and create,I would rather get together with people who play originals, and really I am tired of playing the type of music that puts me to sleep, I would like to hook up with younger musicians that want to do something beside playing in dive bars.If this sounds like someone you would like to check out, the please contact me, I want to put a group together or join a group I can be with for along time.
