Why this name?
I'm known as Moonrider on many internet music forums
Do you play live?
I perform live with the band Southern Roots, I'm available as a "hired gun" for studio work, and I'll do the occasional solo gig in the general Richmond area
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Most of the stuff on commercial radio nowadays sucks big, mold-covered boogers. The corporate mooks just focus on pap that's "safe" and the artists they feature focus on creating "product". That being said, there's quite a few indie bands of all genres I've enjoyed for a while that are starting to catch the ear of a lot of people. The internet is where really good bands that get ignored can create a buzz for their music.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Why? I'd rather retain control of my music, thank you. If I sign to a label, it's going to be a small one. I'm focused on making MUSIC, and the major labels want PRODUCT. No thanks.
Band History:
What history? I've been playing my guitar for 30+ years, and been with numerous unknown bands. Currently I'm slinging guitar for The Wild Kats and Moondawgs
Your influences?
Beatles, Charlie Byrd, B. B. King, Chet Atkins, Jimi Hendrix, Roy Clark, AC/DC, Uriah Heep, Donovan, Neil Young, Todd Rundgren, and about a thousand others.

Wing is NOT an influence.
Favorite spot?
I'm born American, Southern by grace of God, and live in Midlothian, VA because I'm one of His chosen.
Equipment used:
I'm a Tele-holic, with an occasional Strat buzz.

Fender, Vox or Epiphone Amplifiers
