ABOUT

Only looking for other SERIOUS musicians, and cocals. 'm putting together a Mötley Crüe /Vince Neil tribute band, and i can do their music verbatim, and I expect you to be able to as well. If you're CLOSE, THAT'S why we practice, but CLOSE does NOT mean you've heard it on the radio and can half ass it. I'm looking at practicing hard for the next year, and being ready to start gigging hard this time next year (2019). got 30+ years behind a kit. I DON'T do speed metal...but that's about IT ;) I also have both Studio and Travel time under my belt. Have played alongside such great musicians as Kent Henry (Steppenwolf) , Brian Setzer (Stray Cats) , and amazing bassist Henry Vestine , just to name a few..
