Not really a band. This whole section is silly, I am not into myself that much, I just like good music and want to share mine. Please do not hesitate to download any of my tunes-you will not be disappointed especially if you have good taste!
"All Over Town" rocks and tells the truth about life in 5 minutes. "Walkin" has a southern rock influence while "Executioner's Song" is the answer to raising children to be adults, very simple, but parents have to be parents-not children themselves.
Why this name?
It was The Fierce Cravin' Boys, taken from Nelson Algren's book "A Walk on the Wildside", then it was Fierce Cravin' Band, now it is just plain Cravin' Bob Wyman. Or Bob if you prefer...
Do you play live?
Once in a while I play live or I used to. I enjoy just sittin around with my guitar and a dog or two.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Instead of a handful of tunes on FM radio we now have everything online and I mean everything ever recorded. One will have to stand out to be heard so do not slack off...
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I see no point in worrying about that
Your influences?
Jorma Kaukonen, ZAPPA!, Dickey Betts, John Prine, Dave Alvin, Jerry Jeff Walker, I could go on and on... and I usually do...
Favorite spot?
Texas Hill Country
Equipment used:
Shovels, lawnmowers, impact wrenches, battery operated devices, first aid kit...
Les Paul, SG, Strat, Takamine, Guild, Supro, Fostex X-15, just got an 8 track hard drive recorder but am too busy learning guitar building to try it out but have some good material waiting.
Anything else...?
I know a 2 or 3 very good performers in my city but they do not compose and play out once or twice a month. The rest of what I hear has a garage band sound. Those types need to work harder and find a producer then be prepared to be slammed.
Homage to Chris Hillman and Gram
I like to have fun with photos
