    Claim to Fame:

    Either playing bass on Alvin Dahn’s infamous recordings, or my cruise ship disaster gig story

  5. Alex

    Synesthesia, the ability to pick up a tune, and being able to play for a LONG time.

    I am the Keeper of the Chronolith(my amp). A mythical time stone so powerful that in the hands of any mere mortal would prove deadly. I have traveled time and space to harness its power into a destructive path of Earth rattling tone.
