SEEKINGBand to Join.
I have done some form of music for most of my life but since my last band split I have not found the time to persue music, however I intend to change this.
I have always done some form of singing, whether it was for the school choir?s, drama productions or the more recent rock bands. I have also played the clarinet since I was about 7 years old which will branch into the saxophone once I can afford one! I have also played the harmonica and piano though only briefly but I intend to develop them and the guitar properly at some point. Yes I would love to make it as a professional musician however I perform for the sheer enjoyment of it rather than fame and fortune, which is what music is all about.
I am not a fan of rapping or screaming my way through what otherwise would be a perfectly good piece of music, though put in the right place they can sound awesome (e.g. Down With The Sickness Intro - Disturbed)
I am sure that I have forgotten to mention something so any questions are welcome!

I tend to have a preference towards old school/retro/classic rock from the 60-80 region, bands such as The Who, Pink Floyd and of course Queen, and People such as Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, and Frank Sinatra to name but a mere few.
A few more modern influences include Muse, some old Greenday, Robbie Williams and Newton Faulkner etc
Im pretty easy to please
