    if I ever play a rock and roll gig and I can dress as I wish, I am going to wear a loin cloth and buckskin leggings with the fanciest warshirt I can afford. I don't like leather moccasins because they are too slippery, so i'll wear two-tone itallian slippers. no one will forget me.

    you do not do this rock and roll thing with the loud guitars because you want to be some mild little polite thing, hidden away in an attic. you do it because you are as loud and outrageous as the sun.

    My band plays fast Rock n’ Roll with a mix of 60’s Garage, Country, Rockabilly, Goth, and Blues.
    You’re not too far off!

    When I played out, I dressed well, and I encouraged others in my band to do the same.

    Dress slacks, usually black, usually a white shirt, sometimes a tie. Casual shoes and sometimes dress shoes.

    My theory is that a band is a complete package, aurally and visually.

    Always Wranglers and a polo.
    Footwear determined by the formality of the occasion.
