John is Bob’s brother, so it must be his band. John is the founding member and positive force behind the band. No, that isn’t Joe Cocker singing, it’s John Barrett.
Role in the band
Rhythm Guitar, Vocals, Roadie, band mismanagement
I have been playing guitar for many years on my own but this has been my first opportunity to play in an established band. I also play in church with the praise band along with Paul and Don where Paul’s daughter named us “God’s Brother’s Band”
Jimi Hendrix is the artist that made me want to play guitar. I enjoy listening to great blues players such as Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and BB King. I also love Country Music which gets me nothing but grief from the rest of the band.
Favorite song(s) that the band plays
Stormy Monday, Temptation Eyes, Seven Bridges Road, Running on Empty.
Favorite thing about playing in Bob’s Brother’s Band
Playing and learning from the fabulous musicians in this band. I am way behind musically to the rest of the members and it has helped my playing and understanding of basic music theory immensely playing with this kind of talent.
Fender Stratocaster and Peavey Amp. I also play a Takamine G series Acoustic during the show.
