    Holy cats, I've broken decorum in a big way. I've been in TGP for a bit and didn't even notice this Intro section. Alas, all the gear-speak seduced me and put me in a GAS trance...

    Hey folks-

    I live on the Front Range (Rocky Mountains) and have been playing for 23 years. As with most of you, there are too many influences to list. And since I'm from Texas originally, you can probably guess some of my influences. :D (EJ, anything from Charlie Sexton, SRV, Ian Moore, both Bramhalls, Escoveda, Bugs Henderson, etc.)

    I dig art in general: good books, film, visual arts, etc. And of course, music...perhaps my biggest passion. I'm in the midst of trying form an original band, but not a lot of luck so far. Give me a shout if you're looking for a gig, especially if you'd like to make rock music in a very broad sense. Alongside the folks I mentioned above, Radiohead, Wilco, Johnny Cash, Over the Rhine and Chris Cornell get me going.

    Anyway fellow TGPers, that's me.

    Over and out for now-
    JB

    Jammed with a few guys from Ft. Carson but didn't get a band going out of it. I had an apartment on 2nd St. (ave.?) in the late 80's. It was a couple blocks form Current where I think they made greeting cards and checks. EJ used to play City Lights fairly often those days.

    Yep! I can still the Texas influence there. Welcome to TGP! You obviously had good taste in musicians growing up! I travel to CO about four or five tiems a year. Be sure to check out Wildwood Guitars if you have not already -
