The disgusting stink of a too-loud electric guitar.... Now, that's my idea of a good time.

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 label?

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.

Band History:
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.

Your influences?
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.

Favorite spot?
Toronto AND Vancouver.
