Versatile Drummer with experience playing Metal, Classic Rock, Oldies, R and B, and Blues. Prefer heavy metal and would like to connect with other aging 80's metal musicians capable of playing any type of Decade of Aggression music; Metallica, Slayer, Motorhead, Megadeath, Priest, Dio, Ozzy, Sabbath, etc. Any good music really just as long as we play it well beginning to end.

This one is a mix of Hendrix, Doors, Sabbath ... Dave uses the trademark "Orange" amplifiers used during 70's Acid Era and it's a little long but good to enjoy with a buzz. Especially Dave's guitar with the Orange amp crackle towards the end.
