SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.
50 something rhythm guitar player with a bunch of vocals, some lead and tons of gear is looking to either join a band or start one up.
I would like to find a bunch of guys that are extremeIy talented, yet modest and not looking for a gigging band. Another guitarist, bassist & drummer for sure… vocals… someone on keys might add another dimension. This should not be geared towards gigging fulltime, but rather a few special occasions per year. Paid, or unpaid…whatever..more about having fun and entertaining..I am pretty dedicated and expect the same of my bandmates as of myself… to be prepared, to practice, to leave their egos and addictions at the door.
I have a full time job, transportation, and likely even jam space. I wouldn't mind practicing once a week, more if we have an upcoming gig.

- Most available:
ZZtop, foo fighters,Headstones, Aerosmith,Pink Floyd, Hip, Volbeat, TOAD, OLP,VH and the like. Tunes that are challenging and well known, but not necessarily the most popular songs. I can sing a ton of the above tunes. It would be great to share vocals with someone who can nail Boston, Offspring, some foo fighters..
NOT into mamby pamby stuff like CCR, Van Morrison or (dare I say) the Stones. I prefer to keep the beat pounding and the guitar distorted.
I am not against playing slower, acoustic tunes…maybe some Blue Rodeo or Hip…maybe some slower Bon Jovi or even Chris Isaak if its done well, in fact I think every band should have a few slower tunes, but please no House of the rising sun or Sweet home Alabama. Its not that I am against any of those tunes, but I think too many bands take the easy way and play what they think the crowd wants to hear. IF you insist on playing any of those "classics", lets at least have some fun, and get the distortion flying, ramp the drums up and find the tune a new groove.. Think "Take me home country roads" by Jason & the Scorchers…Bad Company by FFDP…yeah, that’s what I'm talking about…
