Paul’s musical journey began very early in his life. Much to the dismay of his father (who grew up with Frank Sinatra and Big Band music), the allure of rock & roll was irresistible to the young lad. Luckily for our future drummer, his mother was English and far more tolerant of The Beatles and the new sounds of the British Invasion emanating from AM radios in the mid 60’s. Paul soaked up all of it. For young people coming of age in that era, it was a wonderful and magical time for music lovers. It was indeed the “golden age of rock n roll.” AM radio in the
1960’s provided a constant stream of new, varied and vibrant music in every genre. As the 60’s flowed into the 70’s, rock & roll became more daring, more experimental, and even more captivating to the young Paul. As the years have passed, Paul’s tastes in music have evolved but
he still has a soft spot for the music of his youth. What may be surprising to those who don’t know the story, is that Paul didn’t start on the drums until he was 40! (His wife will tell you it was a mid-life crisis!) Playing (and singing) great classic rock & roll with Boomerang has been a dream come true for Paul … and he’s loving every minute of it.
Guitar and Vocals
One of John's life’s passions has been to play live music. After wrestling with this crazy instrument for over 10 years now, John has come to an understanding on how to get the most out it and can speak a language that hopefully everyone can enjoy. Born in the early 60’s and lucky to have been exposed to the timeless music from that generation, John certainly was influenced by the usual suspects, Page, Gilmour, Beck, Clapton, Hendrix and so many more, but he has never been one to lock into a specific genre of music. Whether it’s classical, pop, disco, funk..whatever! If it moves him, then he strives to recreate it and put his own spin on it to move you!
