ABOUT

I am a 50 year old bass player looking to form/join a Classic HEAVY rock/ Classic METAL cover band. I want to get together with some musicians on the same page about playing great heavy rock/metal for fun and some SHOWCASE gigs. I'm not interested in playing tired classic rock standards in front of a dartboard in some strip mall bar, thank you.

Heavy metal like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Rainbow (Dio, Graham Bonnet era) Accept, Queensryche, Mercyful Fate/KD, Black Sabbath. Big 4 thrash, VoiVod, Celtic Frost. Open to all forms of metal except hair bands.

Heavy rock like Rush, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Motorhead, Bon Scott era AC/DC, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Jimi Hendrix (Band of Gypsies, Gypsy Sun and Rainbows, not The Experience crap).

I also like stuff like: The Police, Pink Floyd, Missing Persons, Genesis, Mahavishnu Orchestra, QOTSA, 70's jazz fusion.

I am open to original bands, but it would have to be something insane and heavy, because I have no interest in "making it" anymore.
