ABOUT

Ideally I'd love to find:

Guitar: rhythm/lead and vocals (lead or BV), as a lead player someone who is really into texture and taste, "quality not quantity"... same as a rhythm player. Mike Campbell, Gary Louris, Burton Averre

Drummer: +1 if you can sing - Stan Lynch, Dave Bryson, Dennis Diken, Bruce Gary

Bass: Ron Blair, Howie Epstien, Andrew Duplantis... vocals a must!

Keyboard/organ player - all Benmont Tench imitators welcome!.

Influences

My influences: early Tom Petty, Beatles, The Jayhawks, Son Volt, Wilco, The Beat Farmers, Gin Blossoms, Del Amitri, The Knack, Matthew Sweet, The Smithereens, Mike Viola

Here's some tunes I favor:

Tom Petty - American Girl, The Waiting, Don't Do Me Like That
Beatles â?? anything
The Jayhawks - Waiting For The Sun, Blue, Stumbling Through The Dark, Tailspin
Smithereens - She's Got A Way, A Girl Like You
The Beat Farmers - Make It Last, Blue Chevrolet, Hollywood Hills
Son Volt - Catching On, Bandages and Scars, Caryatid Easy, Picking Up The Signal, Medicine Hat, Route
Matthew Sweet - We're The Same, I've Been Waiting
Gin Blossoms - Found Out About You, Lost Horizons
The Knack - Oh Tara, Your Number Or Your Name
Mike Viola â?? Doing It The Wrong Way

Just to qualify the above... as much as I love the songs I've listed; I want to create new music. I'd love to find that wonderful juxtaposition of two jangly guitars, vox with great harmonies, a sparse and smart drummer and a bass player who plays with melody, all wrapped up in a blanket of a beautiful B3 and piano.

For me itâ??s all about the songs. Just great songs played well by a great band that has jelled, and confidently works as a unit.

Since age matters to some peopleâ?¦I'm 56.. have good vintage gear (Fender Twin, Marshalls, Strat, Les Paul, Tele, Gretsch),

....and an unerring belief that "really good" is just a short leap from "just good enough", so why not make the damn effort to find that place where the song literally plays itself... the results can be magical...
