SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Some may call my tastes obscure, but I love to play music people forgot they loved. It's about the song, not about me. I still enjoy re-creating the zeitgeist felt when songs were new and fresh.

Influences

I try to gleen something from many influences. Hendrix, Deep Purple, UFO, AC/DC, SKYNYRD, Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, Moody Blues, Tom Petty. I don't have much interest in pop music because it's been played to death on radio. I believe in distinguishing the band, even if you only do covers. There's so much beloved music that could fly if the group believe in the greatness of it. Dare to be different.
