Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums.


Looking to get back on the stage again after almost twenty year vacation. Need an experienced lead guitar player and drummer who want to be part of building something, not just a paycheck. I am a far better bassist than singer, but sing well enough for where I want to be. I already have a set list sufficient to get us booked. Whomever the guitarist will be must also be able to sing lead on songs they introduce. No alcohol, no drugs. I Have the rehearsal space and PA. Money does not motivate me. Staying booked motivates me. Picky about lyrics, not interested in anything metal, really heavy (Black Sabbath etc.), or glam rock (including Guns 'n' Roses). Follow my link for my rehearsal list (sing one by harold manley) and you'll get the idea. s://./playlist?list=PLglJCRTD_-0zA7jDi3jgn5nhJr3g2hxh9. I don't want to re-invent the wheel, but do not want us to sound like the originals either. I feel no obligation to give a faithful rendering of any cover. Instead, I see the use of covers as a short cut to getting people to listen to us. (and to get booked). I am available any time, all the time.

What I like to listen to and what I like to play are entirely different. Really don't listen much at all anymore, unless I'm looking for material to perform. Rather spend my time working on original pieces or singing/playing. When I do listen it is either to Christian contemporary. (for the encouragement, not the instrumentation) or instrumental i.e. Dixie Dregs, Return to Forever, Brand X (earlier stuff), King Crimson, Yes, Renaissance, you get the idea. What I play/sing is mostly late sixties to mid seventies. Hendrix, Dylan, Neil Young, Monkees, Kinks, Doors, Yardbirds, Allman Bros., and assorted blues.
