ABOUT

I'm a lead guitarist, who enjoys writing about life, after-life, spiritual, and other experiences (I've had many)...

Love playing live, started at 9 yrs old in Coffee Houses, and Churches.

At times - dark themes, oddly descriptive, strange and unusual ways of writing -hopefully fun, enlightening and thought provoking...

Seeking kindred souls to work with... No A-holes (had to put that in there, being quite the opposite and fun to work with). You get much better results with patience.

Looking for one solid situation, and also break off and work with other musicians in many different projects, and variants.

Influences

As a guitarist - All the solo heroes of past, present, and hidden. -However, No over the top, out of control blurs of madness - unless done with extreme taste. Sometimes biting into a single note with passion suits best...
Neo Classical rockers, and Guitar wizards always a plus (way to many to list) !

Styles and Artists :
CLASSIC ROCK / singers - Paul Rodgers (of course), Ronnie James, Joe Lynn Turner, Robert Plant, Morrison, and the bands that correspond...

SEATTLE ROCK SCENE / singers - Chris Cornell, Eddie Vedder, Scott Weiland, and the bands that correspond...
***Chris Cornell is one of my favorite singers of all time...

PROGRESSIVE ROCK / METAL - Symphony X, Circus Maximus, Sonata Arctica, Jorn Lande, King's X, (just to name a few)... I also pay respects to the grandfathers of this style, Rush, Kansas, Floyd, etc...
***Symphony X is one of the best bands in the world !!! See them live every chance I get... (Pure Brilliance)

INDUSTRIAL - (This style rocks) Klank (Still Suffering), Argyle Park, Celldweller, NIN, Pain, Blue Stahli, etc., and yes even Rob Zombie makes me crank up the volume.

ALTERNATIVE - I relax to this one from time to time, both past and present artists. From Tori Amos, U2, Course of Empire, Machines of Loving Grace, etc., to Radiohead, Foo Fighters, etc. I've even been known to listen to R.E.M. or weird out to Bjork on occasion...

ALSO - Blues, Classical, Inspirational, Spiritual, World, Progressive New Grass, and basically anything done well...

SPECIAL MENTION - The Cult (Ian Astbury rocks), and the band Trouble...
