ABOUT

I’m a guitarist who’s been doing mainly original material for the last few decades but I’m looking for a more laid back situation. I'll do covers or original material, as long as the songs are good. I have major label recording and touring experience and will bring a pro attitude. I’m 54 but in decent shape. I like trans-y psychedelic type sounds but I can play anything from Johnny Cash to Pink Floyd. I've got good vocal abilities, great lead guitar tone and a strong rhythm hand. I'd like to find some people who like to practice, maybe one a week and gig once or twice a month.

I mainly want to have fun maybe make a few bucks, I like to jam. I'm not a mercenary. The tunes above are stuff I did alone in my home studio except Stayin' Alive which was recorded with my old band The Royal Wyldes.

Edit: I've recently found a singer and drummer. Both are quite good. We need a bass and either second guitar or keys. We're covering Nirvana, Bowie, Stones, Beatles etc.
