I've been singing a'cappella for many years (have 4 National Gold Medals for Barbershop) I know it sounds kinda nerdy but it actually makes for a strong acurate voice. I am now stepping away from the art form and back towards my original love of Rock (Dio, Kiss, Floyd, etc..) and have bought a Les Paul and Fender Hot Rod Deluxe to go with the theme. Not much of a lead player but am happy to play rhythm or anything else as required.
I also wonder if there might be an innovative new and quirky angle to be explored by mixing smooth, controlled, strong, classic vocal style with raw power rock guitars? Think Evanescence with a male voice and a melancholy lyrical style. Pure classic hard rock telling stories of todays worlds troubles. As Marlon said below the Gold Coast live music scene need a shake up. Let's get together for a jam and see if we all like what we hear?
