I can't remember a time when I wasn't singing. My parents tell me I used to sing to myself in the crib! Chorus in high school. Glee club in college. Starting singing in my first rock band almost nine years ago. I've even sung back-up vocals with Dazed And Confused a couple times! Shure SM58 Mic. Hohner Marine Band Special 20 harp. One of the perks of being a singer is the quick load-out!
I've been playing guitar for twenty years. And I dabbled in piano lessons when I was younger. I spent more years in Pittsburgh than anywhere else. But I went to high school in Bethlehem, PA. That's on the other side of the state. After graduating from Pitt, I felt I needed a change. I had visited SD a year prior. Seemed like a nice place.
So a buddy and I packed up my Toyota and headed west! No job. No apartment. Just guts and moxie! But we really just picked a city on the coast and headed there. Dazed And Confused - Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin glad I picked San Diego. I can't imagine anywhere Excruciating Terror - Bodyhammer - Full Noise I've been playing the bass since There was a string Dazed And Confused - Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin hits on the radio from Rush's Moving Pictures Tom Sawyer, Limelight, etc and these were songs driven by the bass and drums.
Also, Geddy Lee was funny looking, and I was funny looking and I fell in love with the bass because of him. I was 12 years old. Boxers, never briefs. I use Magnum condoms. Power boats over sailing and I'm allergic to cats. I also play a little guitar. I call my style campfire guitar, because that's about all I can do, strum major chords around a campfire.
If someone asks for "suspended" chords or whatever, I'm done. I mentioned Geddy Lee as my main influence on bass, but I also would list Sting and the first 4 Police records as big influences on me as a youngster. I was very much into Queen, Yes and of course, Led Zeppelin.
There were jazz legends we would listen to with our Push Your Body (John Dahlback Remix) - Various - Promo Only UK Underground Beats: September 2005 agape: Stanley Clarke, Andy West and Jaco Pastorious, but we were just playing simple rock n roll in those days. If we could mimic guys like Steve Harris or Billy Sheehan, we were doing just fine.
I went to high school at Lake Braddock and college at Radford. My sister was living in San Diego with her husband who was in the Navy. I came to visit twice and that second time I just went home and got my stuff.
That was I'm still surprised the whole country doesn't just pick up and move to San Diego. I've been playing drums since I was eight years old. Several decades have past. My latest kit is Ludwig's John Bonham Vistalite re-issue. The stands and pedals are all Tama. Kick pedal is Axis A21 single pedal.
My early rock drumming influences were John Bonham and Ginger Baker. Jazz drumming influences include Tony Williams and Billy Cobham. It took years but I finally moved to San Diego in the early '80s and immediately began playing live and recording with local bands.
I did have visions of moving to LA, but San Diego became my home. I doubt now I'll ever leave now. I love this town! It was the first Zep tune I ever heard. Bonham's playing and his broken triplet bass drum patterns just blew me away. I haven't left the woodshed since. I'm also a fan of Zeppelin bootlegs. Despite the challenging audio on these kinds of recordings, they're really my favorite. We are a San Diego, Ca. We are available for booking concert Neverlight - Pretty Bleak - happiness, night clubs, outdoor shows, private events and all ages events.
