General Lee
There are music nerds, and then there are people who like music to be playing while they get drunk. Music nerds wear tight black pants, Technic sweatshirts, and they work in music stores. Partiers wear AC/DC T-shirts, ball caps, and you'd swear their occupation was drinking beer. I respect both philosophies, but if you're a music nerd, read no further. If you have grease under your fingernails or, ladies, if you own a tube top, General Lee is your band.

General Lee plays bluesy Southern rock. "Rockin' Till I'm Gone" and "Just Enough" are your traditional Lynyrd Skynyrd-type songs with lyrics about aeroplanes, Southern women, and whiskey. "Big Reaper" and "Lonely Drifter" are slower, more on the blues side, and speak about impending death, women leaving in the night, and disgrace in the rain.

The drums, bass, and rhythm guitar are snappy and driving, but the lead guitar and vocals are the focus of any Southern rock band worth its boots. David Myers's vocals are a dead giveaway to one of his influences; he sounds almost exactly like Stevie Ray Vaughan. His guitar is not quite as good as SRV, but it'll get the job done if you're in a beer bar and want to dance.

Bio

Originally known as David Myers and the Blues Crew, the band formed when a young, hot guitar player found himself in sunny, San Diego courtesy of the US Navy. He played with a tape until he found the perfect bass player and drummer. Together, they formed the Blues Crew and released "Ready for the Ride." After a year of playing, the guitar player took a trip around the world and came back with a new sound and new songs. Add a Rhythm Guitar player and General Lee was born. A little more rock and a lot more edge, General Lee has been playing together ever since.

Rockin’ the Blues, Southern Style!! General Lee turns it up in this nine track debut, Rough, Rugged & Raw. The album gives respect to players of the past (Back When: track 4) including a visit from the ghost of Stevie Ray (track 5). Musically and lyrically, General Lee is making its own history with amazing guitar and jaw-dropping performances.
