Lael Eccard - Drums & Percussion. Born in Cody, WY and raised in North Hampton, NH Lael came from an extremely musically gifted family. "You could say music was born and bred into me, so much so it runs in my veins." It was on the east coast where he began studying percussion at age 9. In high school he was involved in anything and everything having to do with music. Choirs, theater, jazz, rock and marching bands, all states of every variety. These were the things that occupied much of his time. Lael has studied under the direction of such notables as Les Paul Jr, with the dean of the drumming department at Berkley School of Music, and Dan Bodanis, a well known studio musician from Canada. Lael then continued his studies in Portales, NM at Eastern New Mexico University majoring in Music Business and Performance.

Chris is an avid aviation enthusiast and is actually in the process of building his own plane. Never one to mince words, the brevity of this bio is a perfect reflection of Chris' persona which is always short and to the point. He more than makes up for it when he starts making the Strat howl. Moving to New Mexico in 2002 for a dramatic lifestyle change, Chris now makes his home with his lovely wife, Cynthea, and Midnight "the wonder dog" on the eastern slope of the Sandia Mountains in Edgewood.
