Keith, after an all-night jam session
Do you play live?
I play live when I can. I'm looking for a solid classic
rock band at the moment, but I do get called upon from
time to time to sub-in, given my 27 years of experience.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3)
change the music industry?
It's a downfall and a God-send all at the same time.
I don't support pirating, but I do download tunes that I
need to learn.
I prefer to buy than rip off, but there are tunes I need
to learn and download them for personal use.
The internet has brought many individuals together to
create a band recording, but not a band atmosphere. In
saying that, doing a colab with somone over the NET is
nowhere compared to being in the actual room with all the
session members live.
Would you sign a record contract with a major
No. I want to have myself or have my band to have total
creative control of what I/We put out. All the money I/We
make will go back into bettering ourselves, our sound and
into our own pocket. I/We make the music, not the lables.
They just grab the money and run.
China White, Ragdoll, Momakin, Powerslave, Cold Gin,
Harlotte Mansion, Crimson Mary...
These are some bands that I have joined and gigged with,
or subbed for.
Wow. Too many to list, but on a personal level, I'll list
them as I grew up.
Jimmy Page, Tony Iommi, Paul (Ace/Aka Space Ace) Frehley,
K.K Downing, Glen Tipton, Dave Murray, George Lynch,
Warren D'Martini, Greg Howe, Ritchie Kotzen.. Like I said,
too may to list.
