ABOUT

Bass player who can sing some. Love older, more traditional blues, but some newer stuff is ok. I like Altered 5 for instance and Pat Travers band. Willie Dixon.
I'm retired so don't have many restrictions on my time.
Metal I like is Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Machine Head, Chimaira, Devil Driver, Pantera, other groove metal, thrash, power metal bands. I like blues and metal equally. Want to play in a band that gigs, maybe around 3x a month, am flexible. Hopefully not too far away for driving to practice, like an hour is fine, maybe 2 for a great band that I couldn't quit. I don't drink/smoke/drugs. I'm punctual, responsible, pleasant, no drama, "weird" sense of humour.
