Crimson TimeBomb

Crimson TimeBomb


Crimson TimeBomb is influenced by Led Zeppelin, ACDC, The Who, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and many of the other greats of Rock N Roll. Crimson TimeBomb is often said to resemble all of these bands in one way or another. People like Crimson TimeBomb because of their old school hard rock sound.


Crimson TimeBomb was formed in the summer of 2007 by two local Memphis musicians, Chase Allen and Josh Wayne. After Josh met Chase at a local music store called Memphis Music, they began to talk about their music interests and ideas, and soon after began jamming together. The two instantly clicked with one another as they played off each other very well. Once Chase’s smooth, yet wild guitar playing, and Josh’s Zeppelin influenced drumming came together, Crimson TimeBomb was on its way to becoming a band. Only days later, Chase introduced his friend Nathan to Josh in an attempt to recruit him as the lead vocalist. Nathan quickly demonstrated to Josh his powerful yet mellow voice and Josh was immediatley sold on the idea of him as lead vocalist. Now Crimson TimeBomb was close to its completion.
The band didn’t practice much at the time, as they did not have a rhythm guitarist or bassist at the time. To deal with this, Chase decided next to introduce Josh to a man named Chris Borgelt, who apparently played a mean rhythm guitar, and was influenced by such artists as The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and even The Beatles. These influences appealed to Josh as he was inspired by the same legends of rock. Once again, days later, Josh met Chris, and was amazed by his unique style of guitar playing. The rhythm guitarist was finally found . The next and final step in the completion of Crimson TimeBomb was finding a bassist, the most difficult part.
As thing began to look grim for the bassist situation, Josh met a man named Tabor Dwyre at Christian Brothers High School, who played bass guitar. Tabor was not an amazing bassist, but he met the simple requirments the band ahd at the time. So shortly after their meeting, Tabor was introduced to the rest of the band and was later recruited as the bassist. Crimson TimeBomb was complete at last.
As the band progressed musically and intelectually, Tabor did not seem to follow along with the flow of Crimson TimeBomb. Showing up late to band practices, or sometimes not even showing up at all, was unacceptable to the band. Tabor was confronted about this issue numerous times, but still he was unable to keep up with the musical and general requirements of the band. In the winter of 2007, Tabor was relieved of his job as bassist due to a disagreement with Josh. Crimson TimeBomb faced a serious issie now. Without a bassist, a band is nothing.
The band soon became lazy and uncaring about their music as a result of not having a bassist. All the members, especially Chris, Chase and Josh began to clash with one another involving minor, unimportant issues on an almost daily basis. Things began to heat up and tensions ran high. Only months later, in the late winter of 2007, Chase left Crimson TimeBomb due to personal struggles with fellow members of the band. Crimson TimeBomb was over.
When all began to look lost for Crimson TimeBomb, another chance meeting occurred at a music store. This time it took place at Guitar Center. Josh had been browsing for new drum accessories that day, when he came across Chase, Chris and Nathan in the guitar section. They made small talk, reminisced about old times, and recalled humorous memories. For old times sake, Josh asked Chase if he would be interested in a short jam with him. Chase agreed, and minutes later they began to jam in the drum department. Josh on the drums, Chase on an acoustic guitar. They both admitted they missed making music together, and talked of reuniting the band. Only a few days later, Chase contacted Josh and they decided to reunite Crimson TimeBomb, this time with Chris, originally rhythm guitarist, on bass guitar. Crimson TimeBomb was back, ready to rock, and stronger than ever.
