SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Looking to start/join an 80's/90's cover band with plans to work it into a full time gig, all the while dabbling in original material.

I'm 52 and still a highly energetic performer. I lived and played in SoCal in the late 1980's and have lots of classic rock cover experience. I have also wrote and recorded original material (multi-genre) and I am a strong co-writer and lyricist, often putting lyrics to a riff or instrumental in a single take. I recently decided to leave my position as a full-time (salaried) bassist in a blues band, dusted off the guitar and started playing again. I am looking for like-minded musicians/groups, close to SB, who are seeking the same kind of musician. The most important aspect is being a good "fit" for the group. While I am a Christian, I am not fanatical,and neither do I judge others or discuss politics. I do no drugs, have no bad habits and i get along well with everyone.

Like most of you in your 40's/50's, I grew up listening to Motörhead, AC/DC, Mountain, Scorpions, Triumph, Dio and many other bands in this genre. I'm looking to fit in with a musician or group that has a similar desire to cover this type of music....and also dabble in writing some original material.

I have sang lead vocals on various multi-genre studio projects, and I am fairly versatile, but vocals are not what I would consider my strong suit. I'm singing lead on the Motörhead cover in my profile and I have other covers I have performed vocals on and original guitar solo compositions.

Here is my ideal setlist:

GREEN MANALISHI (Judas Priest)
THE OCEAN (Led Zeppelin)
PERFECT STRANGERS (Deep Purple)
YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER THING COMIN' (Judas Priest)
HOLY DIVER (Dio)
BIG CITY NIGHTS (Scorpions)
ROCK AND ROLL AIN'T NOISE POLLUTION (AC/DC)
STONE COLD (Rainbow)
ROAD TO HELL (Rory Gallagher)
IMMIGRANT SONG (Led Zeppelin)
BREAKIN' THE LAW (Judas Priest)
YOU SHOOK ME ALL NIGHT LONG (AC/DC)
FEVER DREAMS (Dio)
BLUE ON BLACK (Kenny Wayne Shepard)
ACE OF SPADES (Motorhead)
WHY ME? (Planet P Project)
BROTHERHOOD OF MAN (Motörhead)
MAN ON THE SILVER MOUNTAIN (Rainbow)

If this setlist looks like one of your homemade CD's, I'd enjoy hearing from you...
