First Jamming/Learning Band (no name):
Guitar: Jim Bocsey
Bass: Dave Bocsey
Drums: Mike Pesta
Jim and Dave Bocsey were brothers that would come over to my house and we would play 'Black Sabbath' songs in my bedroom. I was the drummer in this band.
We never played any real gigs but every once in awhile a couple of friends would come up and listen. We were learning alot about musicianship and playing together.
Jim was really the first guitar teacher that I had as well. He was (and still is) a good guitarist. I remember him teaching me things like 'Over the Hills and Far Away' by Led Zepplin and 'War Pigs, Iron Man and Fairies Wear Boots' by Black Sabbath.
I appreciate all that he's done for me. He currently owns his own music store and is producing a cable tv show about local musicians.
