SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a 57 year old lead guitarist, and have been playing since the age of 11. Last band was Rosie Rox playing styles such as Run - Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol, Dakota - Stereophonics, Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin, Final Countdown - Europe, You Give Love A Band Name - Bon Jovi, Sweet Child Of Mine - G&R, Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd, Don't Stop Believing - Journey, Message In A Bottle - Police, Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis, Because The Night - Patti Smith, If Looks Could Kill - Heart

Band is currently in limbo. Potential new female lead singer working on songs, who may or may not pan out. Will need a new drummer.

I am actively looking to join a band. Along the lines of Rock, Classic Rock, Cover and Tribute bands. Metal/Punk/Thrash not my cup of tea.

Influences

My favourite artist/band is Steely Dan, but I very, very rarely play any music that I generally listen too in any bands that I play in. I typically might listen to the likes of Stanley Clarke, Pat Matheny, Al Di Meola, Santana, Pink Floyd, Genesis or Camel. Or on the lighter side, I might actually play, Blondie, Slade, Sweet, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Marley, ABBA, Spandau Ballet, David Bowie, Roxy Music, Kate Bush. However, in general, I am really only interested in playing tuneful rock and classic rock in any gigging bands.
