Chris Gates and Gatesville / Bio
I've been playing music for my entire life... the Big Boys from 79-84, Poison 13 from 83-85, Junkyard from '86-present, The Charter Bulldogs from 2002 - 2005, and now this. Pretty cool...
As a songwriter, the last 20+ years have been spent working my way back home - back to the music I grew up on. John Prine, The Allman Bros., Skynyrd, ZZ Top - I'm a child of the 70's... As a band we are trying to make the music we miss - good songwriting, harmony guitar parts, honest lyrics and high energy music.
We have a new record - "Welcome To Gatesville" that will hit the shelves on Sept. 16th 2010. I think it's the best record I've ever made and I hope you all agree.
Playing music I love the way I want to play it with guys I love hanging out with... doesn't get much better than that...
