Contact DetailsRuss Potter
Guitar player since '86.
Favorite music styles: Classical and metal with a subtext of jazz, hip-hop and electronica.
Also familiar with bass, drums, live production, audio mixing and editing.
Had a brief exposure to live performance in highschool (national jazz fest) and then again a couple years back with a "happy-punk" band (local Van. bars).
Mostly influenced by earlier Metallica (Kill 'em all to Black Album), Joe Satriani and various "real" metal bands. (r.i.p. Volatile - we miss you). Looking into the possibility of combining heavy 808 kicks and pounding bass rythms with conventional metal (think Chemical Brothers and Pink Floyd meet Metallica and Sepultura???)
Avid cyclist when not playing music.
