Biography

Out of the dust and ashes of alternative and metal, comes a fresh shot of adrenaline to the heart of rock. The Gone is an aggressive benediction to the Phoenix music scene, hell-bent on lowering their worshippers to their knees and making them yearn to salaam. Their blend of melodic tone and solid structure is complimented by the passion and fury that clearly marks their music as rock and roll. In the flesh, they are awesome and unstoppable. Their goal is the resurrection of live music, the once prolific but now endangered creature which has all but diappeared due to the widespread apathy of the Phoenix audience. Aided by the more mundane fuels of cheap liquor and youthful stamina, the group performs in an almost choreographed manner, so intricately are they connected as musicians. Curt Wesley stands as ringleader with his lusty animal voice, accompanied by a ferocious Dave Z. on lead guitar. Matthew James is a talented bassist that rides a pulsating undercurrent with Brad Lee, who does backing vocals and manipulates his rhythm guitar with a sexual intensity. With Dan Ammon as the solid, thundering beat that both completes the band and ties it tightly together, its not difficult to understand why their fans are roaring and sweating and writhing in time with the performers themselves. The Gone is causing a rebirth of the popularity of local music, and forcing rock connoisseurs to accept them as the new patrons of what had previously been considered a lost art.
