Who Wants to Rock?

This morning, I woke up to a revelation:  I miss making music with other people.

Me: Guitarist/Songwriter/Recordist.  Can sing if I absolutely have to.  Living in Chandler, AZ.  Burnt out on the band thing for a long time.  Not getting any younger.  No interest in partying.  No drugs, cigarettes, or booze.  Cover songs OK, but not my focus.  Interested in writing, playing, and recording.

You: At least 30 years old.  Live relatively close to me.  Similar influences.  Bassist, singer, drummer, and/or songwriter.  Over the rock star ego, attitude, drama, and partying bullshit.  Interested in music.  Not afraid to look/sound stupid.

My incomplete list of influences:

  • 70′s classic rock
  • 80′s pop and hair metal
  • Beatles
  • Billy Joel
  • Boston
  • Budgie
  • Dr. Demento
  • Dreams Come True (Japanese pop)
  • Dream Theater (“Train of Thought” album)
  • Feel So Bad (Japanese metal)
  • Frank Zappa
  • Heart
  • Indigo Girls
  • James Taylor
  • Joe Pass
  • Joe Satriani
  • King’s X
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Metallica
  • Nuno Bettencourt
  • Queen
  • Queensrÿche
  • Rush
  • Sasagawa Miwa (Japanese pop)
  • Southern All-Stars (Japanese rock)
  • Steve Vai
  • They Might Be Giants
  • Tom Lehrer
  • Van Halen
  • Weird Al Yankovic
  • Zemfira (Russian pop rock)

If any of this sounds like you, hit me up.  If not, I’m sure there’s a Linkin Park cover band somewhere in the valley that needs a keyboard player.

    Yeah, I’m game. Bass guitar, vocals, Gilbert, already look ridiculous, at your service.
