Too Old To Rock is the brainchild of guitarists Jim Reindel and Chris Hattingh. The group was formed in 2002 as a vehicle to showcase the guitar mastery and compositional skills of its two founders. Their debut CD, "Too Dumb To Quit", was released in December of 2002. The music is all-instrumental guitar rock in a wide variety of styles, from shred to acoustic ballads, to 80's and 90's metal, to exotic world fusion, to funk to psychedelic rock. Their new CD, "Unplugged & Toothless" (2005), is an ecclectic mix of acoustic guitar styles, including jazz, reggae, bluegrass, prog rock, southern rock and even a Hendrix-style ballad.
Why this name?
We don't remember......
Do you play live?
We haven't played live as a band yet....the group was formed as a long-distance recording project, and that's all we've done to date (writing and recording)
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
On the positive side, it gives local artists access to a much larger (worldwide) audience. On the negative side, it has spawned a new era of music fans who feel like they are entitled to free music.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
After a lifetime of superstardom, Jim and Chris retired from the silver screen to quietly play their guitfiddles on Jim's back porch.....
Steve Vai, Michael Schenker, Rush, Yngwie Malmsteen, Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Morse, Al di Meola and Shawn Lane.
