Whammy Bar 1


Band to Join, Drums, Bass Guitar, Vocalist.


Hello music world. I am Explosive Joseph! Yup, just another guitar player. A little summary of my background. I started to play guitar at age 7. Now at age 50 I have been in many projects. I grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago. A Little town Elmwood Park IL. I have been a staple in the Chicago music scene with my band Center Drive for many years. In 2005 I moved to the west. I'm trying to keep the band alive with western musicians close to me. I don't mean country music. It has been a little slow, still looking for a bass player and singer. Well enough about that.

I am available to play guitar for another band. I will join if things flow right. Or just sit in for a night. If you need to lay down some tracks. I can help. My styles are as follows my Influences: I will make it easy and just name the bands. I probably played 1 or 2 of their songs at some point. I'm not in to drugs or heavy drinking. No drama. I'm here to do what i do best, play the guitar and music. I play metal , but no death metal, blues, classic rock.
I'm not always on this site. For a faster response contact me at > center drive band at .
