ABOUT

I've been so busy on this riff, I haven't been able to communicate. Sorry... Been Drummin' http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=8026877&q=hi&newref=1

News Flash... Take note Andrew Enderby Sideshot... Call me! mvbeng at fzckin' g mail 675-2213 My harmonica is getting sloppy. Nobody likes my Led Zep practice list. Fzck 'em. I do a "ZZ" Tribute now, so they can actually play the parts, with a twist. I don't do any Billy Gibbons that everybody else covers. I sing Thunderbird, Tush, Arrested, Ten Dollar Man, Just Got Paid, Heard It on the X, and more. Scruffy Billy, It's pretty bad when the singer plays guitar better than every pretender... Myles Goodwin... I feel your pain. I rip you off too. Play and sing, but could use a hand with the Led Zeppelin as it is impossible to play and sing with heart at the same time. It takes two to tangle. Get me my white sports coat with the map o' Texas on the back. Give the drummer a break. Turns out I'm the only drummer even close here, either.

Zeppelin... I can fill some of the lead and or second guitar parts or carry the under solo rhythms as necessary. Most studio Zeppelins have at least two guitars on them.
