    In the 1980's I was in a Christian rock band in Denver, called Zion. This is our unfortunate promo photo (I'm the guy in the glasses). I think the photographer's make-up artist had a hidden agenda. ;)

    Several cans of Aqua Net later, we renamed the band Chosen.


    A few more personnel changes, and less hairspray. We added a female keyboardist, who became my wife. She and I still make music together 30+ years later. :thumbsup:

  6. between 1995-1998 I was in a band called 'Tin Nimbus'.... it's probably the only decent band I've been in and didn't get many or any photos of..... until Darren the guitarist sent me these on messanger yesterday
    Tin Nimbus.
    L-R Darren on Rhythm Guitar, Rob on Drums, Nick on Lead Guitar / Vocals and Me on Bass

    Nick on Drums.

    This is me on Robs drum kit.... Robs kit looked like crap, but it was a 1963 Premier Kit and he'd modified it a bit Unfortunately in his youth Rob decided to strip it and paint it black and white like a zebra - which explains why it looks crap - it actually sounded pretty good. Funny thing is we all live in different parts of the world now
    I'm still in New Zealand, Darren is in the UK, Rob is in Melbourne Australia and Nick is in Munich Germany
