My name is Christopher, I have been playing guitar since I was 14 yrs old. My first real guitar was a Gibson Les Paul Custom black beauty my Dad got me for my 17th birthday. I have had four other Les Pauls come and go, I miss my Silver Les Paul Custom the most.... My main axe right now is a Gibson Les Paul DC Goldtop w/24 fret neck-thru. I have a 70's Fender re-issue strat and telecaster, both with Noiseless pups and a few other frankenstiens and custom paint jobs lying around. I also have an ESP acoustic guitar, sounds very nice and looks great. I love playing and creating music with friends in my home studio. I play guitar, bass, drums and a little keys. I also write songs and sing.
This is my new Rock en Espanol project. I LOVE playing in this band, everyone is very talented and very humble. I couldn't ask for a better bunch of guys to be with. We all get along great cuz we S-H-A-R-E everything. We all get paid the same and we all have a voice as to what we do or don't do. This band brought me out of semi-retirement!
This is the band I was in that Howard Leese produced, and please note.... I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CRAPPY WEBSITE! If it's still up) I just came up with the name for the band and co-wrote every original song on the disc. I don't like telling too many people about the website, mainly cuz it is such a big embarassment. It was one of the reasons for alot of the arguing, that along with musical direction. They wanted to do too many cover songs, it was just getting ridiculous. The original songs are good, but there was just too much fighting, a major control freak and one too many egos flying around. Sad really....
I LOVE playing out and meeting people. With my new band it is fun again! In Cassanova there was too much bullshit and too many egos to make it fun anymore. When it stops being fun, it's time to try something else. I became a home recording enthusiast, or for a more rock cliche, a recluse! I love playing and creating music with my home studio, and I don't have to leave home or pay anyone! A very special moment was having Howard Leese of Heart, come down and produce a demo of a band I was the lead guitarist in. It was awesome seeing one of my guitar heroes on the other side of the glass when I was recording!
