2013 Nominee – Male Vocalist of the Year – 23rd Annual LA Music Awards
I have been a singer/ songwriter of regional renown for over 30 years in Texas. Born in October, 1963, My first band (in 1980) also featured neighborhood friends Terry Glaze and Tommy Bradford, and, after meeting a young Vince and Darrel Abbott, soon morphed into the first incarnation of the Grammy Award nominated heavy metal band Pantera. After leaving Pantera in 1981, I joined Dallas/ Ft. Worth heavy metal pioneers Boss Tweed, and toured the US almost nonstop for the next several years. In 1986, I joined the band Assassin, who enjoyed regional support from radio stations such as Z-Rock and Q102 for our self-titled debut album. In 1994, I moved to the East Texas region and was recruited into the band U.S Lords, and played with guitarist Donnie Pendleton for the first time. When The Alan Fox Band offered me a spot in November 2011, I jumped at the opportunity. The Alan Fox Band is currently working on the follow up to our first album, “JuJu Ear Rub”.
